Available Positions

The laboratory focuses on the application of micro- and nanotechnology to tissue repair and regeneration. We aim to improve cellular therapies for liver disease, develop microtechnology tools to systematically study living cells, and design better ways to diagnose and treat cancer.


Postdoctoral Inquiries:

Candidates should have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree with expertise in liver biology, stem cells, biomaterials, polymer chemistry, tissue engineering, nanomaterials, bioconjugate chemistry, microfabrication, or microfluidics. In particular, we are currently interested in adding team members with expertise in the following areas:

  ○   Nanoparticle delivery of nucleic acids

  ○   Tissue engineering with expertise in sensors, printing, and/or electronics

  ○   Synthetic biology

  ○   Protease biology and engineering

  ○   Paper diagnostic design

  ○   Clinical hepatology


Applicants, please send an email to lmrt-positions@mit.edu that includes:


  ○   a summary of your research experience and interests, specifically as it relates to what you might pursue in our group (500 words or less).


  ○   a copy of your curriculum vitae, including the names and contact information of three referees (PDF format preferred).


Please note, we receive a large volume of inquiries, so we regret that we are unable to respond to each submission. For all open positions, if we are interested in pursuing your application, we’ll be in touch within 6 weeks of receiving it.


Prospective Graduate Students:
The lab is always looking for exceptional students for graduate study. Current MIT graduate students who are interested in doing their thesis at LMRT should contact Dr. Bhatia directly with a curriculum vitae, names of three referees, and a summary of research experience and interests.
