Research Positions

Assistant Specialist Position – Nilsson Group

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UC Irvine invites applicants for an assistant specialist position to work on preparation and analysis of chemical degradation products from ionizing radiation using the UCI TRIGA reactor. The applicant must have experience in handling and working with open sources of radioactive material, preparation of samples for irradiation, post irradiation analysis including metal-ion extraction and complexation, calculations of irradiation yield and dosimetry. Use and function of radiation detectors is also required.

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.
