VIEW JOBS 12/7/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-03-07T00:00 GENERAL SUMMARY/ OVERVIEW STATEMENT: We are developing novel biomaterials for drug delivery systems that respond to stimuli in the microenvironment of the gastrointestinal tract for biomedical applications. Specifically, we focus on engineering polymeric drug delivery systems for controlled release of therapeutics for disease treatment. Targeting drugs to the site of action may minimize toxicity as well as improve treatment outcomes. The project involves materials characterization, rheological evaluation, drug release testing, microscopic imaging and evaluations in animal models. The work will be performed at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School and is part of a larger collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. PRINCIPAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: * Synthesis and purification of polymers * Materials characterization and evaluation in cell culture * Manufacturing and production of novel drug delivery technology * Design and execution of experiments in vitro and in vivo in small and large animal species * High School graduate with college credits required. * College undergraduate required. Prefer individuals with science or patient care background and interest in scientific research. SKILLS/ ABILITIES/ COMPETENCIES REQUIRED: * Highly motivated, responsible, and creative * Ability to work independently and strong attention to detail * A strong background in general chemistry, general biology, and related engineering disciplines * Ability to follow and execute instructions * Having experience and skills in chemical synthesis, microscopic imaging, or cell culture is a plus. WORKING CONDITIONS: Collaborative Environment: About the Langer and Traverso labs The Langer and Traverso labs are research labs at MIT and BWH/Harvard Medical School focused on developing new technologies at the interface of biotechnology and materials science. A major emphasis of the lab is the study and development of polymers to deliver drugs continuously at controlled rates for prolonged periods of time. Will primarily work in the Traverso laboratory in BWH Division of Gastroenterology, which is located at the 221 Longwood Ave, Boston. When needed, will access instruments located at MIT.
