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 (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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 (email@example.com) and
attach a resume.
