A postdoctoral position is currently available in the Institute of Tissue Regeneration Engineering (ITREN). ITREN, as a Priority Research Centre announced by Korea government, is a research institute established at Dankook University in 2007. Institute aims to advance interdisciplinary researches in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, covering basic science to engineering and medicinal / dental applications. 

We are interested in developing nano-biomaterials and multi-faceted technological platforms for the in vitro and in vivo reprogramming of cells that have potential for regenerating damaged and diseased tissues, including musculo-skeletal and neuro-muscular systems. For this reason, we are seeking candidates who have experiences in biomaterials as well as strong expertise in the biological experiments and understating of cells and biology, with special focus in the following areas:

1) Reprogramming of somatic cells

2) Induced pluripotent stem cells and embryonic stem cells

3) Cellular biophysics or biomechanics (cell-material interactions)

4) Nanobiomaterials or drug/gene delivery systems (biopolymer or chemistry-based)


Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent degree in Biology, Biomedical Engineering, Tissue Engineering or related field. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. Candidates should be creative, independent, and dedicated to building a career in these fields. Salary will be commensurate with experience or capacity. We are seeking for immediate incorporation. To apply please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
