Positions Available

We provide a wide spectrum of training opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the following areas: Multiscale Biofabrication, Stem Cell Research and Tissue Engineering, and Cell Mechanobiology.

Postdoctoral Researcher

One postdoctoral fellow position is currently available in the areas of functional biomaterials, cardiovascular tissue engineering, and stem cell engineering. The ideal candidates should have strong expertise in one of the following areas: BioMEMS, polymeric biomaterials, micro/nanofabrication, stem cell biology, and quantitative microscopy. Previous experience in microfluidic cell culture is a plus. All candidates should have a strong experimental background, excellent verbal and written communication skills, a strong academic and publication record, and the ability to work independently. Fellows are expected to function independently in the design and development of their research, collaborate with internal and external investigators, and participate in the preparation of manuscripts, grants, and presentations. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Kim directly by sending the following documents in a single PDF file via email (
• a cover letter outlining their research interests and career plans
• a CV including three references and their contact information
• PDF files of selected publications

Graduate Student

We are currently looking for multiple highly motivated and intelligent students. Several projects are available for Graduate rotation students. Please notice that we can only accept students that have been already admitted in the University of Washington graduate programs. Please apply through the Bioengineering department or other departments in the University of Washington if you are interested in joining our group.

Undergraduate Student

We always look for outstanding and motivated undergraduate researchers to join our lab. Undergrads have the chance to work closely with a graduate student or a postdoctoral scientist to perfect skills in cell culture, microfabrication, fluorescent microscopy, and computational modeling. Interested students should please email a resume, transcript, and personal statement to Prof. Kim.
