Postdoctoral Research Associate
Description: We are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines for a NIH sponsored project. The project involves developing computational and in vitro models of vascular injury to predict bleeding risk in individuals with hemophilia and von Willebrand disease. The project involves a team of mathematicians, engineers, and physicians and consequently requires excellent communication skills and the ability to work in a team. Responsibilities will include designing and testing in vitro models of vascular injury, aiding in the development of computational models of blood clot formation, conducting experiments with patient samples, and writing manuscripts.
Qualifications: Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in a closely related area (chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology) prior to starting the position. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in one or more of the following: microfluidics, fluids mechanics, micro-/nano-fabrication, platelet biology, coagulation biochemistry, and cellular biomechanics. The successful candidate must have a strong publication record in high-impact journals and demonstrate the ability to conduct independent research.
Located in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, CSM is just minutes away from Boulder and Denver, offering a unique combination of mountain living coupled with large city amenities.
Applications should include a letter of interest, CV/resume, and a list of three references.
