A postdoctoral research fellowship position is available at the Bambu Vault, Lowell, MA. This appointment will be at the rank of postdoctoral fellow at Bambu Vault in Lowell, MA. This facility is located close to the University of Massachusetts, Lowell and provides an excellent environment for developing and translating new optical technologies with applications in biology and medicine.

The position will focus on the development and application of biomaterials for applications in trauma, surgery and oncomedicine. Over the past several years, Bambu Vault has developed and tested novel, light-sensitive molecules that can be incorporated in a range of materials for a wide variety of applications. The goal of this research position is to design, develop and characterize new biomaterials that can be used for applications in trauma, surgery and oncomedicine.

This position will be interdisciplinary, spanning from chemistry and materials chemistry to prototype implementation. The hired biomaterials postdoctoral fellow will work closely with a team of synthetic chemists and biomedical engineers at Bambu Vault. We are seeking a highly motivated, creative candidate with expertise in biomaterials design, synthesis, and application. Prior experience creating biomaterials or biocompatible materials is required. Experience in synthetic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and quantitative data analysis is highly desired, but not a requirement.
