Our research group is made up of students of engineering and science. Typical projects require strong experimental skills, including nanofabrication, and ultrasensitive optical and electronic measurements.

There is an open position for a postdoctoral scholar in our group, starting immediately. We are looking for an experimentalist to work on a project for developing a novel antibiotic susceptibility test based upon nanotechnology. Candidates with recent PhDs in engineering and physics are encouraged to apply. A strong experimental background in bio-microfluidics, nanofabrication, sensitive metrology (e.g., using electrical or optical techniques), nanobiotechnology, etc., will be desirable. If you are interested, please email a cover letter, a CV, and the names of three references to ekincilab@gmail.com.

We are also looking for several PhD and MS students to work on projects in nanomechanics and nanobiotechnology. If you are already in a graduate program at Boston University (e.g., in ME, BME, MSE, ECE or Physics), please send us an email. Otherwise, please apply to the relevant graduate program and let us know that you have applied.
