Staff Positions

Research Technician at the Interface of Immunology & Biomaterials

The Jewell Research Lab in the Fischell department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland (UMD) – College Park has an opening for a technician to support lab operations at the interface of immunology, materials science, and bioengineering. These projects are funded by six external, multi-year grants. The overall goal of the lab is to understand the interactions between biomaterials and immune cells and tissues, and to exploit these interactions to generate therapeutic vaccines aimed at autoimmunity and cancer. We use biomaterials ranging from degradable polymers, to lipid carriers, self-assembled structures to achieve these goals. Our work involves cell and animal models, and incorporates tools from chemistry, engineering, and immunology. The lab currently consists of 15 members with backgrounds in engineering, biology, and chemistry.

Duties for this position will include a range of activities to support the PI and lab members. These will include: i) assisting in benchtop experiments (e.g., flow cytometry, ELISA, gel electrophoresis, histology, microscopy, cell culture), ii) assisting in animal studies (e.g., treatments, disease monitoring, cell/tissue isolation), and iii) analyzing data to support experiments. Candidates should have a BS in bioengineering, molecular biology, immunology, animal sciences, or a related field. Candidates with MS degrees may also apply. The ideal candidate will have past research experience with one or more of the following areas: rodent handling or translational research, isolation of primary cells or tissue, flow cytometry and ELISA, microscopy and histology, or other core immunology and molecular biology techniques. However, training in all techniques will be available for excellent candidates and for continuing education.
Interested candidates should assemble a i) cover letter, ii) CV, and iii) list of 3 references. The cover letter should describe the candidate’s experience, interest and expectations for the position, general salary expectations, and preferred start date. E-mail the application as a single PDF file to Dr. Xiangbin Zeng, Lab Manager ( with “Jewell Lab Technician Candidate” in the subject line.
