Location: Singapore,
Job Type: FullTime

The TMIG group at Materials Science & Engineering (MSE), NTU is looking to recruit a high-caliber postdoctoral Research Fellow, who will be a part of an international team addressing a major concern of antibiotics usage in cellular agriculture research and development stages in the industry.

The purpose of the project is the development of non-antibiotic mitigants that will be safe to use and approved by regulators. Experience in developing microfluidics-based delivery system. biocompatible soft materials, nanoencapsulation, microfluidics and lipid nanoparticle research are some of the preferred requirements for this position. This role will also provide opportunity to lead and develop sub-projects, in-line with the vision of the program which is the development of broad-spectrum and targeted mitigants for industry representative bacterial targets.

Key Responsibilities: 

  • Design and characterization of broad-spectrum lipid, peptide, and glycan-based mitigants

  • 3-D scaffold fabrication using new bio-materials and characterization of the same

  • Design, post-processing, and biomimetic cell culture environments for 3D scaffolds

  • Scalability and reproducibility of bioactive 3D scaffolds for large-scale manufacturing

  • Critical interpretation and application of experimental results

  • Collect and prepare data/ information/ proposal required for research-related grant call process

  • Gather information/ data and prepare documents for reporting/ papers

  • Assist in and deliver training new team members with relevant laboratory/ technical skills

Job Requirements: 

  • Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering/Materials Science/Chemistry/Chemical Engineering

  • Strong experimental skills, especially proficient in functional materials fabrication, fabrication of micro/nanoparticles, functionalizing biocompatible materials, and associated methods.

  • Excellent communication and organizational skills while hard-working and able to meet tight deadlines

  • Able to work independently in gathering information/ data and prepare documents for reporting/ papers

  • Willing to contribute team services like sharing/ coaching new members with relevant laboratory/ technical skills
