Chwee Teck Lim's picture

 

A new $150M Research Center of Excellence (RCE) on Mechanobiology has been set up at the National University of Singapore  (http://newshub.nus.edu.sg/headlines/0209/TRCE_20Feb09.php).  We are now in the process of hiring 50 good post-docs. 

 This newly established Centre at the National University of Singapore (NUS) aims to complete an integrated nanometer to tissue description of the mechanically dependent functions in cells and tissues. Through quantitative biophysical approaches, we will address major problems in biomedical sciences including pathogenesis (from bacterial to cancer), tissue regeneration and function. We are seeking outstanding candidates with strong background in molecular and cell biology, biophysics, biology-related engineering or computer sciences, and a commitment for collaborative interdisciplinary research to join research in molecular, cellular and tissue mechanics. Faculty in the Centre are coming from many major international research universities with diverse research backgrounds. They have a common goal of training a new generation of researchers to solve important biological problems by combining the approaches of nanotechnology, bioinformatics, molecular biology, modeling and biophysics. The Centre is directed by Mike Sheetz and Paul Matsudaira. For further information on the research profiles of the team members, see website http://www.dbs.nus.edu.sg/mechano/index.html. Singapore is a vibrant garden city with year round tropical climate and rich multicultural heritage. Established in 1905, NUS has evolved into a top teaching and researchintensive institution, acknowledged as one of the finest universities in the Asia-Pacific.

The Centre offers competitive salary package, and housing allowance. Please submit your application (form downloadable from http://www.dbs.nus.edu.sg/mechano/jobs.html), along with curriculum vitae, research interest and names of three external referees to:

Prof Choy L Hew, Deputy Director, RCE in Mechanobiology

National University of Singapore, 14 Science Drive 4, Singapore 117543

I am completing my bachelors in engineering from Indian Institute of Technology in July '09. I am planning to pursue graduate studies in Mechanobiology and am looking for a 8-10 months resesarch project.

Had written an email for the same to the centre a month back but have not recieved any reply yet.
