Postdoctoral positions at Yale: nanotechnology for drug delivery to the brain, brain cancer stem cells
The Zhou lab at Yale University is accepting applications for postdoctoral positions to develop nanotechnology approaches for drug delivery to the brain and to study the biology of brain cancer stem cells. The lab uses a combination of stem cell biology and emerging nanotechnology to develop novel therapies for brain cancer and stroke. Applicants should have completed a recent Ph.D. in drug delivery, biological sciences, or related areas. High priority will be given to those candidates with strong background in biomaterial synthesis and nanoparticle engineering, stem cell biology, as well as experience in confocal microscopy, in vivo imaging, and protein purification. Interested applicants please send a brief statement of interest and curriculum vitae with contact information for three references to Dr. Zhou at firstname.lastname@example.org.
