Postdoctoral Scholar Positions

Postdoctoral Scholar in Metabolic Changes in Alzheimer’s Neurons

$54,540 - $58,608, 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 in the area of the age-related metabolic basis of Alzheimer’s disease. This position will perform cell biology 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 Scholars – In-Situ TEM, STEM Diffraction Imaging and Vibrational EELS for Quantum and Energy Materials

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

UC Irvine (UCI) is currently is seeking two postdoctoral scholars who will focus on advanced in-situ scanning/transmission electron microscopy (S/TEM), STEM diffraction imaging (4D-STEM), and ultra-high energy resolution electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) studies of quantum and energy materials. Both positions reside in Professor Xiaoqing Pan’s group in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Postdoctoral Research Position: Synthesis, Characterization and Evaluation of Electrodes for Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

UC Irvine invites applications for a postdoctoral research position to conduct research on proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers. The candidate will develop nanomaterial-based catalysts and perform both material and electrochemical characterization. In addition, the successful candidate will be expected to write high impact journal papers, conduct data analysis and work with academic and industrial collaborators to further develop additive manufacturing processes for this technology.

Postdoctoral Position in DNA Nanotechnology

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Copp lab at UC Irvine is immediately seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join the lab’s effort to expand the self-assembly rules and functionality of DNA nanotechnology by harnessing metal-mediated base pairing. Our multidisciplinary research team studies how sequence-encoded biomolecules and synthetic polymers can serve as programmable building blocks for novel photonic and electronic nanomaterials. This research is at the intersection of soft matter physics, chemistry and nanoscience.

Postdoctoral Research Position in Composite Materials

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

UC Irvine invites applicants for a postdoctoral research position in the area of composite materials. We are a research group investigating ultrastructure-mechanical property relationships in biological materials with the ultimate goal of producing strong and tough composites. The research is at the intersection of materials science, chemistry, biology and mechanics. This position requires a doctorate in materials science or closely related field.

Postdoctoral Research Position - Protein and Metabolic Engineering

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

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UC Irvine invites applicants for a postdoctoral scholar to join Assistant Professor Han Li's laboratory of metabolic engineering and synthetic biology. The ideal applicant will have experience in genetically engineering bacteria and yeast, protein purification, enzymatic assays and analysis of microbial fermentation products. Good organization, communication and ability to work in a team setting are essential qualities.

Postdoctoral Scholar - Analysis of Biological and Biomimetic Materials

Will remain open until filled

UC Irvine is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research position in the area of biomimetics and biological composite materials. We are a research group investigating ultrastructure-mechanical property relationships in biological materials with the ultimate goal of producing strong and tough composites. The research is at the intersection of materials science, chemistry, biology and mechanics.
