Academic Employment

Jr. Specialist - ELCACT

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a junior specialist position for a laboratory located in the Edwards Lifesciences Center for Advanced Cardiovascular Technology at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering. This position is funded by multiple extramural grants, which address topics related to tissue engineering, including cardiovascular and immunology.

Postdoctoral Scholar – Optical Assessment of Engineered Tissues

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to join Professor Kyriacos Athanasiou’s lab (http://engineering.uci.edu/users/kyriacos-athanasiou). The main objective is to engineer device- and biologically based solutions to medical problems. Work will begin in the orthopaedics area but may broaden into other medical specialties as well.

Specialist Series - Metabolic Changes in Alzheimer’s Neurons

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a specialist position to investigate the age-related metabolic basis of Alzheimer’s disease. The specialist 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).

Postdoctoral Scholar - Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering

Commensurate with qualifications and years of experience
Will remain open until filled

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: Metabolic Changes in Alzheimer’s Neurons

$49,188 - $53,184
Will remain open until filled

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.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Musculoskeletal Bioengineering

Will remain open until filled

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.

Postdoctoral Scholars – Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics

Will remain open until filled

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.

Tenure-track Position in Devices for Precision Medicine

Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level with a target start date of July 1, 2019. We seek a doctorate-level scientist or engineer who will establish a strong and dynamic research program in personalized and precision medicine, broadly defined. Areas of interest span from diagnostic devices and wearables to targeted therapeutics, genomics and genome engineering.
