Research Assistant Position in Neural Rehabilitation Experiments for

Neural Tissue Engineering Research


Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

School of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering

  Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine



Job Responsibilities:

A research assistant position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sing Yian CHEW at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, to a highly motivated candidate who has a passion for in vivo implantation and neural rehabilitation model and tissue engineering research.

The focus of this project is to design tissue scaffolds for in vivo neural tissue regeneration. We are seeking an individual who is experienced in working with rats and interested in assisting animal implantation studies and carrying out behavioral tests; and characterizing/evaluating scaffold-cell/tissue interactions through immunofluorescent and histochemical staining and imaging.

This position offers a unique opportunity to apply in vivo experimentation skills to neural tissue engineering, through strong collaborative efforts with clinicians and engineers.

The candidate will be given opportunities and is expected to design and execute experiments independently. He/she is also expected to interpret experimental results, and author papers in high-quality journals in areas that are related to the research. The candidate should demonstrate excellent communication skills and should have a strong passion and commitment to science. He/she will also work closely with the Principal Investigators to help supervise and train students and junior lab members and to ensure smooth functioning of an active research program. The candidate will have the opportunity to explore his/her own interests across functions. 

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelors level scientist with biomedical engineering background in tissue engineering.
  • Expertise in rodent models, immunofluorescent and histochemical staining of tissues, evaluation of tissue response/interactions using fluorescent microscopy (confocal) imaging.
  • Expertise in western blotting, quantitative RT-PCR is a plus.
  • Strong ability to communicate effectively orally and in written form, and experienced in writing manuscripts.
  • Strong ability to perform self-directed work.
  • Strong organizational skills and proactive personality with outstanding motivation, creativity, critical and analytical thinking skills, strong scientific commitment and ability to work as a team.


Application  Procedure:

Applicants should submit a cover letter indicating their area of interest and how they intend to participate and contribute to the research, complete curriculum vitae and addresses of three references in a single PDF document to Dr. Sing Yian CHEW: sychew@ntu.edu.sg


We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
