Opportunities

HSPH_NanoLogo-hThe center is always interested in talented people that want to contribute to the field of nanotoxicity. Currently there are two positions in area of environmental health and safety of engineered nanomaterials (nano-EHS).

Harvard is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Applications from women and minorities are strongly encouraged.

The positions are open until filled:


Post doctoral position in environmental microbiology

Job Description: Postdoctoral position available in the Laboratory of Environmental Health NanoSciences (LEHNS) of Professor Philip Demokritou, located at the Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology in the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard School of Public Health, Boston MA. The lab is focused among others on the applications and implications of nanomaterials, and environmental nanotechnology applications for pathogen inactivation.

LENHS is well-funded with a number of projects in the areas air disinfection, food microbiology, with excellent colleagues and resources. Salary and benefits are very competitive and commensurate with experience. For more information, visit http://hsph.harvard.edu/nano/.

The successful candidate will be involved in various projects studying the nano-bio interactions, nanoparticle bacteria interactions and the prevention of infectious diseases using engineering interventions. He/She will also be in charge of the microbiology lab by ensuring safety procedures/protocols, procurements, overlooking day-to-day operations and maintaining the various bacteria lines.

Minimum Skills Requirements: Microbiology/Aerobiology analytical techniques, Mammalian cell culture, fluorescent microscopy, live cell imaging, and electron microscopy are highly desired.

Requirements:

  • PhD or equivalent degree in Microbiology, Environmental Microbiology or closely related discipline.
  • Authorization to work in the United States (citizen, green card, or valid visa/OPT).
  • Experimental skills in microbiology/aerobiology, food microbiology, cell biology environmental microbiology.
  • Experience with nano-biology, nanotechnology, environmental engineering or related fields is a plus.
  • High quality first author publications in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Excellent English communication skills.
  • Strong work ethic, self-motivation.
  • Ability to interact well with others.
  • Capable of working independently with minimum supervision.
