Tenure-track Position in Devices for Precision Medicine

Will remain open until filled

The Department of Biomedical Engineering in UC Irvine's 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, 2018. We seek a Ph.D.-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.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Translational Research

Salary is 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 the DELTAi (Driving Engineering & Life-science Translational Advances @ Irvine, sites.uci.edu/deltai). The main objectives of this lab’s research 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.

Postdoctoral Scholar - DELTAi

Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to join the DELTAi (Driving Engineering & Life-science Translational Advances @ Irvine, sites.uci.edu/deltai). The main objective of this lab’s research is to engineer cartilage and fibrocartilages with mechanical functionality. The utility of both stem cells and differentiated cell types are investigated. 

Postdoctoral Scholars – Laboratory of Fluorescence Dynamics

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and years of experience.
Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine 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:  The department is seeking qualified candidates to pursue specialized research to develop novel imaging techniques for the study of biological systems, specifically in analysis of protein dynamics in cells. Positions will be focused on the development of fluorescence methods and instrumentation techniques.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Neuroscience

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

A neuroscience postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor Ron Frostig. The preclinical project for this position is focused on ischemic stroke protection in a rodent model. We are especially interested in cortical neurovascular processes that underlie sensory stimulation-based protection from impeding ischemic stroke or their failure leading to stroke. These studies aim to reveal novel neurovascular interactions in the ischemic cortex during sensory stimulation.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Microfluidic Devices

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to join the laboratory of Professor Jered Haun. The project focuses on developing microfluidic devices for processing various organs and tissues into cellular suspensions for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Samples will be obtained from both animal and humans and will include normal and disease samples.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Synthetic Biology

Will remain open until filled

The UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for 1 to 2 Postdoctoral Scholars to join the laboratory of Professor Chang C. Liu. Individuals will carry out projects aimed at designing and applying specialized genetic systems for rapid mutation, directed evolution and continuous cellular barcoding. Go to http://liulab.com/projects/ or contact Prof. Chang Liu (ccl@uci.edu) for more information on project areas.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Molecular Biology and Biochemistry

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and years of experience.
Will remain open until filled

The UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar to join the laboratory of Assistant Professor Chang C. Liu. Individuals will carry out a fully funded project aimed at in vitro reconstitution of a DNA replication system that the Liu Lab studies. Because significant progress on this project has already been made, we will also consider applicants who would like to do a short (~1-2 year) postdoc.

Specialist Series - Laboratory of Fluorescence Dynamics

POSITION:  Specialist Series – Laboratory of Fluorescence Dynamics

The UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering anticipates openings in the Specialist Series in the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics under the direction of Professor Enrico Gratton and the Digman Laboratory under the direction of Professor Michelle Digman.
