Opportunities at CARE


Postdoctoral Fellow - Regenerative Engineering/Regenerative Biology

The Center for Advanced Regenerative Engineering (CARE) at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) has post-doctoral associate positions available in the areas of musculoskeletal, bladder, and cardiovascular regenerative engineering research. Successful candidates will join a dynamic and multidisciplinary research team of researchers working on the development and evaluation of scaffolds that promote tissue regeneration. A successful candidate is expected to have expertise in cell and molecular biology techniques, with an emphasis on tools and methods used in adult stem cell research and analyses of tissues (e.g. differential gene expression and histological analyses). Applications will be considered immediately upon receipt and on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Qualifications: PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering/Cell Biology/Molecular Biology or a closely related field to the research described above; Strong oral and written communication skills. Preference will be given to candidates with a track record of publications/research productivity in tissue engineering, orthopedic research, cardiovascular research, and stem cell research and technology.

Interested candidates should send a combined PDF with a cover letter describing their research interests, CV, and three professional references to Guillermo Ameer, Sc.D., Director of the Center for Advanced Regenerative Engineering (

Opportunities in Regenerative Engineering


Post-Doc Position in Novel Technologies for Cell and Tissue Analysis

Espinosa Lab, Northwestern University


Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the area of cell and tissue analysis, from molecular to mechanical, in the Departments of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University. The candidate will interact closely with investigators from the schools of Engineering, Medicine, and Arts and Sciences in the context of applications ranging from tissue mechanics, mechanistic understanding of disease (e.g., Alzheimer’s, ADL), and immune therapies. The position will involve research at the intersection of engineering and biology.

Desired Qualifications:

  1. Ph.D. in engineering or related discipline
  2. Extensive experience with at least two of the following:
    - Hands-on experience with cell culture, multiple molecular biology/biochemistry methods         (plasmid preparation, transfection, CRISPR/Cas9, PCR, western blot, next-gen sequencing, FACS)     and optical/confocal microscopy
    - Working knowledge of bio-tools and their principles
    - Microfabrication processes
    - Microfluidic platforms and plasmonic sensing
  3. A good record of publications
  4. Strong verbal and written communication skills
  5. Eligibility to work in the US (i.e., visa, OPT or green card)

Why this is a great opportunity:

• Opportunity to work at the intersection of engineering and medicine
• Potential to be an inventor of new technologies and commercial products
• Experience a top US research university with first-class facilities
• Be part of one of the most collaborative and entrepreneurial environments in the US
• Many cultural and recreational activities at the university and Chicago area
• Comprehensive benefits

To apply: Interested candidates should email a CV (including list of publications with journal impact factors), cover letter describing research experience and interests, eligibility to work in the US, and the names and email addresses of three references to Professor Horacio D. Espinosa ( Northwestern University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer.
