Research Positions

Specialist Series – Biomedical Engineering

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering in the Samueli School of Engineering is anticipating openings in the specialist series throughout the academic year 2018-19. These positions offer a stimulating array of research and training opportunities within the various labs in the department.

The department is seeking qualified candidates with experience in the following biomedical engineering fields:

Specialists in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering anticipates openings for all levels of the Specialist series. Applications are being sought from graduates with backgrounds in mechanical or aerospace engineering.

Applicants must have a proven track record in research. Positions are dependent on extramural funding and research contracts of individual Principal Investigators. The positions may be full- or part-time and may be without salary. Salaries are commensurate with experience.

Associate Specialist in Mechanical Metamaterials

Commensurate upon experience

The Architected Materials Lab at UC Irvine is currently accepting applications for an associate specialist position. The research will focus on mechanical modeling of nano-architected materials, with emphasis on high strain rate response. We are seeking an individual with a strong background in computational solid mechanics – in particular finite elements analysis. Experience with topology optimization is highly desirable. A Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, materials science, physics, or a related field is required.

Specialist in Dynamics and Control

Commensurate upon experience

The Aeronautics, Dynamics and Control Laboratory (ADCL) at UC Irvine is currently accepting applications for a part-time specialist position. The research will focus on geometric nonlinear controllability. We are seeking an individual with a strong background in mathematical control theory, optimal control and differential geometry. A doctorate in mathematics, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or a related field is required. Experience with one or more of the above topics is required.

Project Scientist in Dynamics and Control

Commensurate with experience

The Aeronautics, Dynamics and Control Laboratory (ADCL) at the University of California, Irvine currently is accepting applications for a part-time Project Scientist position. The research will focus on geometric nonlinear controllability. We are seeking an individual with a strong background and experience in one or more of these areas: mathematical control theory, optimal control and differential geometry. A Ph.D. in mathematics, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or a related field is required.

Specialist – Department of Electrical Engineering And Computer Science

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

Specialist positions are occasionally available throughout the year in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine. These positions are under the sponsorship of faculty members in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering. The research focus is in the areas of circuits and devices, systems and computer engineering.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and years of experience.

Assistant Project Scientist, Electrical Engineering

Will remain open until filled

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at UC Irvine has an opening for an assistant project scientist for an experimental research program developing funded research initiatives and setting up laboratory experiments aimed at novel biological sensors and devices at the cutting edge of single-cell genomics, proteomics and protein engineering.
