The Chilkoti group carries out research in two areas: (1) Biomolecular Materials, with a focus on genetically encoded stimulus responsive peptide polymers and fusion proteins for application in protein purification and drug delivery; and (2) Biointerface Science, with a focus on protein-polymer conjugates, the development of low-cost, point-of-care clinical diagnostics, and plasmonic biosensors.
Seeking a research engineer to work in a multidisciplinary research team in the department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University in the laboratory of Prof. Chilkoti under the supervision of senior scientists on the development of point-of-care in vitro diagnostics. A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in engineering and proficiency with CAD/CAM software, 3-D printing, biological assays, and microfluidics are desirable. Proactivity in executing/completing tasks, strong organizational skills, and ability to commit to 3 years or greater are also highly desirable. Compensation will be commensurate with skills and experience. Send a single pdf that contains cover letter, CV, and name and contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org
