The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to join Distinguished Professor Kyriacos Athanasiou’s lab (http://engineering.uci.edu/users/kyriacos-athanasiou). The main research objectives are to engineer device- and biologically based solutions to medical problems. Work will begin in the musculoskeletal area (e.g., articular cartilage, knee meniscus, temporomandibular joint) but may broaden into other medical specialties as well.
Postdoctoral Scholar Positions
The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to investigate the age-related metabolic basis of Alzheimer’s disease. The scholar will perform experiments to alter the course of age-related metabolic changes in neurons in culture and in vivo from Alzheimer-like transgenic mice under the direction of Gregory J. Brewer (http://brewer.eng.uci.edu). The NIH-funded project examines hippocampal changes with aging that affect Alzheimer’s disease.
The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar for Kyriacos Athanasiou's DELTAi group (http://sites.uci.edu/deltai/). The main research objectives are to engineer device- and biologically based solutions to medical problems. Work will begin in the neuro-orthopaedics area (e.g., neuromodulation of the peripheral nervous system), but may broaden into other medical specialties as well.
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California, Irvine invites applicants for a postdoctoral scholar position in the Gorodetsky Group. The positions will present a unique opportunity to participate in a collaborative effort between the Gorodetsky Group in chemical engineering at UC Irvine and the Chen Group in physics at the University of Central Florida. The start date is negotiable (tentatively March to May 2019).
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at UC Irvine invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar position in the Earthman Group. We are seeking an applicant with expertise in dynamic finite element analysis, broadly defined. The start date is negotiable (tentatively Jan. 20, 2019 to April 1, 2019).
The Hochbaum Lab in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at UC Irvine is seeking applications for a postdoctoral scholar in the field of chemical regulation of bacterial biofilm behavior. Applicants should have experience in bacterial culture techniques, analytical chemistry, and experimental techniques for quantitative analysis of bacterial physiology. Candidates must have a doctorate in a relevant field of biology, chemistry or engineering. The initial appointment would be for one year, with the possibility of an extension, depending on performance.
The UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is anticipating openings in the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics for postdoctoral scholar positions (Levels I-IV).
Requirements: Seeking qualified candidates to pursue specialized research to develop novel imaging techniques for the study of biological systems, specifically in analysis protein dynamics in cells. Positions will be focused on the development of fluorescence methods and instrumentation techniques.
Two postdoctoral scholar positions are available in the field of synthesis and characterization of advanced structural materials in Professor Julie Schoenung’s laboratory in UC Irvine’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The postdoctoral scholar will conduct research on investigating structure-property relationships in advanced, novel structural materials. Experimental synthesis and processing methods will include but not be limited to the application of techniques such as ball milling, spark plasma sintering, spray atomization and additive manufacturing.
The UC Irvine Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work in the area of pollution treatment using emerging technologies or advances in conventional treatment technologies. The target pollutants for this project are per- and polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) and pharmaceuticals. We are interested in real-world applications of emerging water/wastewater treatment and environmental remediation techniques such as nanotechnology, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), membranes, etc.
