CARE is Hiring Postdoctoral Fellows


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 (

Northwestern University is an equal opportunity employer.



Our Center faculty has expertise that spans the four converging fields that are the pillars for regenerative engineering, advanced materials science, stem cell and developmental biology, physical sciences, and translational medicine.  They hold appointments among Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine, University of Chicago Medicine, Lurie Children's Hospital, and the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab.

CARE is dedicated to producing a new generation of engineers, scientists, and surgeons that are capable of integrating advances in materials science, stem cell and developmental biology, physical sciences, and translational medicine to develop technical, scientific, and clinical skills that will enable them to recognize and solve challenges associated with the regeneration complex tissues and the restoration of biological function.
