Project Scientist Fellow for Cardiac and Hepatic Microphysiological Systems

An Associate Project Scientist position is available supported by the NIH organ-on-a-chip initiative. The project aims at integrating human iPSC-derived heart and liver tissues in a microphysiological device for investigations of drug toxicity and efficacy. The position requires previous expertise in the design, modeling, microfabrication, and characterization of microphysiological systems (i.e., Organs-on-a-chip). The project scientist will be tasked with: (1) device microfabrication; (2) computational modeling of each device for cardiac/hepatic tissue function; and, (3) perform functional analyses in collaboration with other research groups providing microphysiological systems for integration with the cardiac chip. Postdoctoral candidates with a recent PhD degree and a background in BioMEMs, microfabrication, or microfluidics are particularly encouraged to apply. Experience with human stem cell culture is desired. If you are interested please email Kevin Healy at kehealy@berkeley.edu or apply here.
