The Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) is a world leader in the research and development of technologies and products in the fields of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. WFIRM is an interdisciplinary institute, with an open laboratory concept aimed towards fostering collaboration. WFIRM is located in the Richard H. Dean Building at the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter in Winston-Salem. WFIRM houses an FDA compliant facility for the development of clinical products. Fifteen applications of technologies developed by WFIRM scientists have been applied to patients.

WFIRM is currently recruiting for all skill levels in the areas of chemistry, biology, biotechnology, computer sciences and engineering, to join a multidisciplinary team in a cutting edge program that marries the fields of organs on a chip with 3D bioprinting, regenerative medicine, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Successful candidates will be highly motivated, and will have exceptional scientific creativity, good organizational skills, and effective communication skills (written and oral). The candidate should have the ability to work both independently to design and conduct experiments, as well as the ability to collaborate effectively with team members inside and outside the immediate lab environment. The position offers a competitive salary and exposure to a rich and highly collaborative scientific environment.

Relevant experience in one or more of the following categories is also desirable.

  • Cell culture, cell biology, organoid fabrication and characterization, disease modeling, molecular biology, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology
  • Biochemistry, biomaterial chemistry, hydrogel development, bioengineering, materials science
  • Microfluidic development for biological applications, fluid (gas/liquid) modeling and control, nanotechnology
  • Chemical, biochemical and biological sampling, assay development and standardization, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, computer programming and 3D printing

The Institute typically has openings in the following areas:
