Ph.D. student positions at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace
Engineering of New York University.
We are seeking highly motivated Ph.D. students in the area of biomedical
engineering for translational medicine, starting in Fall 2014 or Winter 2015.
The potential graduate students will work on research projects related to
biomedical devices and biomaterials for disease diagnosis and treatment and
may require close collaboration with medical school. Research directions
include exploring new engineering solutions for emerging problems in cancer
biology, systems immunology, and stem cell-based regenerative medicine.

We are looking for graduate students from a wide array of backgrounds (
engineering, physics, chemistry, materials and cell and molecular biology)
with demonstrated ingenuity, productivity, and ability to work in a diverse,
high energy environment. Candidates with backgrounds in biomaterials, micro/
nanotechnology, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cancer biology, stem cell
biology and immunology are preferred (but not required).
Interested applicants should send their cover letter, curriculum vitae, and
any published paper or manuscript in preparation (preferred electronic
format: pdf) through email to Weiqiang Chen (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will
join the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of New York
University as an assistant professor in September 2014.
