Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications in the specialist series in the laboratory of Chang C. Liu (www.liulab.com). The successful applicant will work with a postdoctoral fellow and Assistant Professor Liu to carry out experiments aimed at achieving genetic systems for rapid evolution and mutational barcoding. 

Postdoctoral Scholars - Engineering Targeted Nanoparticles

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 to join Assistant Professor Jered Haun’s lab for a project focused on developing nanoparticles that specifically target diseases. The project involves synthesis of inorganic nanoparticles, molecular biology to produce recombinant proteins, bioconjugation, flow chamber experiments to assess binding, and computational simulations to analyze the work.

Specialist Series – Biomedical Engineering

Will remain open until filled

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is anticipating openings in the specialist series throughout the academic year 2019-20. 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:

Junior Specialist - Biomolecular and Genetic Engineering

Commensurate with experience

The UCI Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is currently accepting applications for a junior research specialist position in the laboratory of Chang C. Liu (liulab.com). The successful applicant will work with a postdoctoral fellow and Liu to carry out experiments aimed at achieving genetic systems for rapid evolution and mutational barcoding. 

Postdoctoral Scholar – Optical Assessment of Engineered Tissues

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 to join Professor Kyriacos Athanasiou’s lab (http://engineering.uci.edu/users/kyriacos-athanasiou). The main objective is to engineer device- and biologically based solutions to medical problems. Work will begin in the orthopaedics area but may broaden into other medical specialties as well.

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 - 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.
