Positions are available at the
University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Bioengineering. Our group focuses
on seamlessly integrating the brain to implantable technologies by studying the
molecular, cellular, and tissue-scale processes that regulate regeneration,
inflammation, and electrical or optical recording and stimulation of the brain.
Projects involve using brain-computer interfaces to study and treat the progression
of neurological diseases and brain injuries.
Postdoctoral Associate candidates
will possess a Ph.D. degree in a related field including but not limited to,
Biomedical Engineering, Neurobiology, Neuroscience, Molecular/Cellular Biology,
Biochemistry, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical
Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Optics, Material Science, and
Animal surgery experience is
preferred. The candidate should have a strong research background in neural engineering,
in vivo electrophysiology, or in vivo two-photon microscopy. Experience with
biomaterial fabrication, electrochemistry, material characterization, neural
tissue histology, functional/evoked electrophysiology/imaging, functional
electrical stimulation, neurochemical sensing, and advanced biological imaging
(two-photon and confocal microscopy) are desired.
Successful candidate will work on
the chronic neural interface with special focus on implant-tissue interaction.
Candidate will be working with an interdisciplinary team of neural engineers,
neuroscientists, neurosurgeon, biologists, and material scientists. The
research environment at the University of Pittsburgh includes a dynamic
community of bioengineers. Contemporary Pittsburgh is a diverse vibrant city
undergoing a renaissance led by world class Universities and the University of
Pittsburgh Medical Center. The University of Pittsburgh is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
