Graduate Students

Our lab recruits graduate students from the following three programs: Biomedical Sciences (BIMS), Chemistry, and Biomedical Engineering. Interested students may contact the PI at huiwang.ai@virginia.edu. We also welcome M.D./Ph.D. students in the MSTP (Medical Scientist Training Program) program.

Postdoctoral Research Associates or Research Scientists

Two positions are available:

The first postdoctoral researcher will develop genetically encoded biosensors for fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) and apply the sensors to study oxidative stress and kinase signaling. Previous expertise in protein engineering, molecular cloning, plasmid construction, and mammalian cell culture is required. Additional skills in protein purification, fluorescence microscopy, western blotting, SDS-PAGE, and gene editing are preferred.

Another postdoctoral researcher will develop self-wellness alert devices. Previous expertise in electrochemical biosensors is required. Additional skills in plasmid construction, protein purification, and molecular cloning are preferred.

Excellent written and verbal skills are expected. Experienced and achieved candidates may be considered for appointment as “Research Scientists”. The incumbents will participate in a diversity of relevant lab projects and in writing reports for the study sponsors, papers, and grant applications and are expected to develop research programs as time permits. The incumbents will also be expected to attend and participate in laboratory meetings and seminars, as well as work collaboratively with graduate students, undergraduate students, technicians, fellows, and collaborators.
