The Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) is based on a collaborative interdisciplinary approach to molecular, cellular and tissue mechanics. Through quantitative biophysical approaches, we address major problems in biomedical sciences including pathogenesis (from bacterial to cancer), tissue regeneration and function.
We are seeking outstanding candidates with strong backgrounds in molecular and cell biology, biophysics, biology-related engineering or computer sciences. Candidates should be prepared to advise on interdisciplinary team projects as well as to execute their own research. Candidates with a PhD or MD will work with PIs towards developing a vibrant research program. In addition to the requirements above, submit a 1-page research statement.
Positions are now open for research assistants at the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) to be assigned to research groups at the Institute. Candidates are to work under a supervisor and undertake both research administration, laboratory management as well as research work as directed by the supervisor and in the context of the research projects at MBI.
We are looking for candidates who are enthusiastic and self-motivated with good organizational skills. MBI welcomes applications from basic degree holders in Science or Engineering with a preference for candidates with some education in Life Sciences. MBI will undertake to train those with no working experience.
We welcome those interested to join a dynamic research organization which is building towards to be one of the top research institutes of its kind in the world. The position carries a competitive salary, commensurate with experience.
