Postdoctoral Scholars - Gorodetsky Group

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UC Irvine invites applicants for postdoctoral scholar positions in the Gorodetsky Group. There are multiple openings for organic and polymer chemists with expertise in the synthesis and development of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, organic electronic polymers, extended acenes and related materials. The position may also provide opportunities for the development of biomimetic adaptive systems inspired by cephalopods. The start date is negotiable (tentatively March 2019 to May 2019).

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.
