Postdoctoral Position in microfluidics and single cell analysis.
The Wu lab in the department of Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University invites a postdoctoral applicant in the direction of micro/nano fluidics and single cell analysis. The primary aim of the research is to come up with governing principles for cell-environment interactions, and use this knowledge to solve contemporary problems in environment. The particular problem of interest is the role of environmental cues in the growth and migration of cyanobacteria for smart management of algal blooms. The candidate will benefit from extensive resources on Cornell campus, including the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, Nanobiotechnology Center, and the Cornell Nanoscale Science & Technology Facility.
Applicants with prior experiences in micro/nano fabrication, cell culture, and/or imaging, are particularly encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please send in a copy of your cv along with names of three references to Dr. Mingming Wu at firstname.lastname@example.org. This position is open until it is filled.
Opportunities for MS/PhD, MEng and Undergraduate
We have a number of research projects for students at all levels investigating cell – environment interactions, in particular with fluids, using an integrated microfluidic, imaging and theoretical modeling approach. Applications are in health and environment.
involved: Microfluidic device and imaging, fluid mechanics, cell biology, and
Note on undergraduate research in Nano/microbio lab
We have a
range of undergraduate research projects in the Nano/Microbio
Lab, from instrument development to statistical analysis of cell
locomotion. Undergraduate researchers have always played significant
roles in the lab. Many of our undergraduate researchers have had one or more
publications in internationally known and peer
reviewed journals as a result of their work in the lab, or presented in
nationwide meetings. In addition, many our undergraduate researchers have won
on campus and off campus undergraduate research fellowships, these include NSF
graduate research fellowship, NBTC undergraduate research fellowship, and ELI
fellowship. Team work is highly encouraged in our lab, and all the
undergraduate students work closely with either a postdoc or
a graduate student or a professor. We encourage students to work part
time (10 hrs per week) on the
project during the semester for course credit, and full time over the
summer with a stipend or a fellowship.
