General Notes

The Biomimetic Microengineering (BioME) Laboratory (Principal Investigator, Hyun Jung Kim, PhD ) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UT Austin has focused on innovating bioinspired engineering principles to develop biomedical platform technologies to uncover the fundamental questions in human health and diseases. By leveraging the human ‘Organs-on-Chips’ microphysiological system, we have created paradigm-shifting gut biomimicry to reconstitute the physical structure, physiological functions, and mechanical dynamics of the living human intestine . Integration of the human “Gut-on-a-Chip” and 3D organoid system enables to emulate the living host-microbiome ecosystem to understand complex crosstalks between epithelium, microbiome, immune cells and microenvironmental factors pertinent to the human homeostasis and disease pathogenesis. We have collaborated closely with LIVESTRONG Cancer Institute in Dell Medical School at UT Austin. For a more detailed description of our research goals and specific projects, please visit the lab website: https://sites.utexas.edu/biome/

This position entails working with current group members to advance the research projects regarding the design of a patient-specific human gastrointestinal (GI) disease-on-a-chip to emulate the pathophysiology of diseases such as colorectal cancer or inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis). We are particularly interested in identifying the role of the gut microbiome on eliciting the initiation and pathogenesis of these GI diseases. The candidate of interest will leverage microfabrication techniques, primary cell culture, microbial culture, and single-cell analysis to contribute to our on-going projects. Multiple opportunities to collaborate with GI clinicians, GI oncologists, bioinformaticians, microbiologists, and biomedical engineers are expected.

The position is initially offered for one year, which can be renewed on an annual basis up to five years.


  • Carry out primary research investigating cellular and molecular mechanisms of microbial cells and their products responsible for the cancer development.
  • Contribute to publish research articles and write research grants and reports.
  • Contribute to design experiments and collect and analyze data.
  • Collaborate, train, and communicate with group members.

Required Qualifications

  • PhD in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, clinical microbiology, cancer biology, or related scientific fields within the last three years. Must be proficient in writing and editing scientific manuscripts in English. Additionally, candidate must have qualified experience in at least one of the following: microfluidics/organs-on-chips, 3D intestinal organoid cultures and advanced tissue engineering, stem cell engineering, or single-cell analytics and multi-omics technologies. Must be authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis for any employer.

Relevant education and experience may be substituted as appropriate.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in 3D cell culture, microfabrication, microfluidics, cancer biology, tissue engineering, confocal microscopy, and scRNA analysis are all preferred.

Salary Range

$50,878 + depending on qualifications

Working Conditions

  • Uniforms and/or personal protection equipment (furnished)
  • May work around chemical fumes
  • May work around standard office conditions
  • May work around biohazards
  • May work around chemicals

Required Materials

  • Resume/CV
  • 3 work references with their contact information; at least one reference should be from a supervisor
  • Letter of interest
