Dear Colleague:

2 Postdoctoral Research Associates and 2 Ph.D. Graduate Research Assistants
are available in the Nano Bio-systems and Bio-mimetics Lab at the University
of Tennessee, Knoxville.

These positions are sponsored for 3 years by the Army Research Office and
the National Science Foundation. The goals of these projects are to develop
bio-inspired: 1) climbing/attachment mechanisms for robotics; and 2)
nanoparticle enhanced adhesives to bridge biotic and abiotic interfaces for
Biomedical Applications. The projects employ advanced mathematics, robotics,
systems theory and nano-instrumentation to learn nature's design principles
at the micro/nano-scale for engineering innovation. Candidates with solid
mathematics and engineering backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

In addition, we have Ph.D/Postdoc positions sponsored by the National
Academies' Future Initiative and UTK-ORNL Science Alliance on cellular
systems control, and bio-inspired nano-scaffolds for chemical detection. The
platforms used for these studies are yeast and the immune system.

Interested applicants, please submit CVs and research papers to Mingjun
Zhang at: mjzhang at utk.edu
