The Ahsan laboratory at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Pharmacy in Amarillo, Texas, has an opening for a Ph.D. studentship in pulmonary artery-on-a-chip with an anticipated start date in January 2019. The aim of this project is to recapitulate pulmonary arterial layers and arterial disease on a chip, and assess the effect of drug on chips prepared with male and female cells. An ideal candidate should be proficient in microfluidic based chip design, fabrication, on-chip cell culture and cellular characterizations and use of 3D printers in chip design. The candidates must have a four-year undergraduate degree in pharmaceutical sciences, bioengineering, or related disciplines. All applicants, US and international, must have taken GRE and all international students whose native language is not English must have both GRE and TOEFL/IELTS. Preference will be given to students who have an MS degree from a US University with relevant laboratory experience. Admitted students are provided with a yearly Research Assistantship of $25,000, along with partial (80-90%) tuition waivers.
