The Image-guided Ultrasound Therapeutics Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati is seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the area of Biomedical Ultrasound. More information is available below:
An extramurally funded postdoctoral position in the Image-guided Ultrasound Therapeutics Laboratories is available to develop sonothrombolysis. The overall goal of the project is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying ultrasound-enhanced thrombolysis and to provide important new information to assist the design of targeted agents that will improve thrombolysis in acute stroke treatment.
The postdoctoral fellow will perform in vivo porcine studies to provide important new information and assist in the design of a transcranial ultrasound system to accelerate the activity of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator or other lytics. The fellow will perform studies in an established intracerebral hemorrhage model and in an extracranial thromboembolism model under angiographic image guidance using a state-of-the-art interventional suite. The postdoctoral fellow will be mentored by basic scientists and clinicians.
A Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or another related discipline and strong experience in experimental biomedical ultrasound or acoustic imaging are preferred. The position has an initial appointment of one-year and is renewable for a second year. The University of Cincinnati offers a competitive salary and benefits structure, in addition to career building activities and mentoring for future work in academia and industry.
Applications or questions regarding the position should be directed to Christy K. Holland, PhD. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vita and references.
