PhD Candidate and Postdoctoral Recruiting in Jinxing Li’s Lab at Michigan State University, USA

Scholarship:  Full benefits
Degree: BS, MS, PhD
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines:  2023 Fall

Scholarship Description:

The Li Lab aims to engineer biologically interfaced machines, specifically miniaturized sensors and robots, which can seamlessly integrate and precisely interact with the biological systems, towards precision, ubiquitous, and affordable healthcare infrastructure.

We are particularly interested in fundamental sciences leading to new sensing and actuation principles, by exploring the spaces between traditionally different fields.

We also seek to develop scalable manufacturing methods to translate these inventions into ubiquitous diagnostics and therapeutics. Examples of our work include a soft bioelectronic neural interface for sensing neurotransmitters and hormones, microscale robots for targeted medicine delivery, and soft robots for safer human-machine interaction.
