The Biomaterials and Nanomedicine Lab seeks to fill an undergraduate research assistant position within the BiionixTM (Bionic Materials, Implants & Interfaces) Cluster at the UCF College of Medicine. Our research program focuses on implementation of novel manufacturing methods for developing bioabsorbable magnesium bone implants. We seek a highly motivated individual with a strong interest in advanced manufacturing with a focus on liquid metal processing of magnesium nanocomposites. The successful student will conduct scientific research using computational modelling of liquid metal processing and casting of magnesium materials, and lab-based techniques such as metallography analysis, and corrosion tests. This position offers the excellent opportunity to develop skills in metal-based nanocomposite manufacturing, metallurgy, computational modelling, and biomaterials. The position will include organizational responsibilities, such as maintaining safety records, and providing general lab support as needed.
