Postdoctoral Fellow

Posted by: NYITCOM

Posted date: Oct-07-2018

Location: Old Westbury, NY

A NIH-funded postdoctoral research position is available at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM, Savinova lab) in collaboration with the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences (NYIT Long Island, Carka lab). The primary objective of this position is to develop integrated research into mechanisms of vascular calcification and atherosclerosis. The specific project will be focused on modeling of blood flow in calcified arteries reconstructed from ex vivo measurements obtained by surface metrology and micro-CT. The project is aimed to provide hemodynamic insights into accelerated atherosclerosis in mice with genetically engineered vascular calcification (PMC4845279, PMC5638543).

The applicant must hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in Biochemistry, Biophysics, Biomedical Engineering, Engineering or a related discipline. A strong background in computational modeling (supported by peer-reviewed publications) and motivation to pursue biomedical research are required. Ideally, the candidate will have expertise in more than one of the following areas: cardiovascular research, surface metrology, micro-CT, finite element analysis, and CFD-FSI computational modeling.

Responsibilities will include development and execution of experiments, data analysis, computational modeling, manuscript preparation, and working with collaborators and other members of the research team at the College of Osteopathic Medicine and College of Engineering and Computing Sciences at the New York Institute of Technology - Long Island Campus. Applicants must be self-motivated, methodical, detail-oriented, and possess excellent oral and written communication skills.

This is a 12-months full-time position. The successful candidate is expected to apply for extramural postdoctoral funding in the first year of training. To apply, send your CV and a cover letter to Dr. Savinova via email (osavinov(at)nyit.edu) with a subject line containing RA#1199.
