Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Vascular Surgery and Biomedical Engineering

The Division of Vascular Surgery at Northwestern University (Chicago, IL) is seeking to hire two postdoctoral trainees specializing in Vascular Regenerative Engineering. Successful candidates will join a dynamic and multidisciplinary research team focusing on the use of advanced biomaterials, stem cells, and translational imaging for regenerative therapies of various vascular diseases. Specifically, the projects will involve clinical translational research in vascular bioengineering and regeneration, including the manufacturing of clinical-grade stem cell products, in vitro disease modeling and high throughput drug screening, non- invasive cell tracking via advanced molecular imaging, and development of novel animal disease models. The expected start date is September 1, 2020.


  • PhD degree in Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering or a closely related field.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills.
  • At least two published first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals within the past 2 years.
  • Preference will be given to candidates with a track record of publications/research productivity in the following areas of specialization: tissue engineering, cardiovascular medicine, cell biology, iPS cell technology, drug screening, non-invasive imaging, biomaterial design and characterization, and animal models of disease.

Applicants will work under the guidance of Dr. Bin Jiang, Assistant Professor of Vascular Surgery and Biomedical Engineering.

Interested candidates should send a combined PDF with a cover letter describing their research interests, CV, and three professional references to Bin Jiang, Ph.D. (
