Job Opportunities

POST-DOC POSITION AVAILABLE (11/9/17)

The Neural Tissue Electrode Interface and Neural Tissue Engineering Lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh has a postdoctoral research fellow position open immediately. The candidate should possess a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering, neuroscience, materials science, chemistry or a related field, and have published scholarly articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. He/she should have a strong research background in biomaterials and drug delivery for neural applications. Experience with biomaterial and biosensor fabrication, cell culture and characterization, neural tissue histology, or advanced biological imaging and electrophysiology are desired. Successful candidate will work on the chronic neural interface field with special focus on understanding and the implant-tissue interaction, as well as using biomaterials and tissue engineering strategies to improve the implant integration within neural tissue. The candidate may also be involved in projects related to neurochemical sensing and drug delivery into CNS. He/she will be working with an interdisciplinary team of neural engineers, material scientist, chemist, neurosurgeon and neurobiologists.

Interested candidates should submit curriculum vitae, the names of three references, a statement of research experience, and date of availability to professor Tracy Cui (xic11@pitt.edu). Detailed information on the NTE Laboratory can be found on this website. 

   

The Neural Tissue Electrode Interface and Neural Tissue Engineering Lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh also welcome applications from motivated graduate and undergraduate students! Interested candidates should email professor Tracy Cui (xic11@pitt.edu) and attach a resume.
