Postdoctoral Scholar Positions

Postdoctoral Scholar with Professor Don Zhang

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work in the area of hydraulic and waterless fracturing in support of research addressing the energy-environment nexus of unconventional oil and gas development and geothermal energy. We are interested in advancing thermos-hydro-mechanical (THM) models that account for major processes associated with hydraulic and waterless fracturing in a computationally efficient manner.

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 Scholar - Gorodetsky Group

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UC 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).

Postdoctoral Scholar - Earthman Group

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at UC Irvine invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar position in the Earthman Group.
