Campus/College Information:
Founded in 1856, University of Maryland, College Park is the state’s flagship institution. Our 1,250-acre College Park campus is just minutes away from Washington, D.C., and the nexus of the nation’s legislative, executive, and judicial centers of power. This unique proximity to business and technology leaders, federal departments and agencies, and a myriad of research entities, embassies, think tanks, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations is simply unparalleled. Synergistic opportunities for our faculty and students abound and are virtually limitless in the nation’s capital and surrounding areas. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and in the world.
The Maisel Lab’s research integrates materials science, immunology, mucosal barrier physiology, and drug delivery to achieve our long-term research goal to design nanoparticles and in vitro model systems to take advantage of and study the interface between biological barriers and biomaterials. We are particularly interested in understanding how the lymphatic system responds to physiological and pathological cues at mucosal surfaces, and how we can take advantage of the natural transport functions of the lymphatics to deliver therapeutics to modulate the immune response.

Background Checks

Offers of employment are contingent on completion of a background check. A prior criminal conviction or convictions will not automatically disqualify a finalist from employment in the position.

Vaccine Protocol

The University of Maryland has made the safety of our students, faculty and staff, and our surrounding communities a top priority.
