Post-Doctoral Position: Biomechanics of Blood
McGowan Center for Organ Engineering, University of
Pittsburgh, PA


The Artificial Heart Research and Development Group at the McGowan
Center for Artificial Organ Development of the University of Pittsburgh
is inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral fellowship in Biomechanics
of Blood. The specific project is concerned with a cellular-based
experimental and theoretical study of blood flow and trauma with
emphasis on blood-wetted artificial organs. This research will be
conducted within a multidisciplinary a research and design team
consisting of clinicians, engineers and students. There is a strong
collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University’s computer scientists and
computational scientists and the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center. The
successful candidate will develop experimental techniques for and
perform the study of micro fluid mechanics of blood flow.


A Ph.D in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering or related
discipline is required. Preference will be given to applicants with
experience in tissue mechanics, cell mechanics, biorheology, and fluid
mechanics. Excellent experimental skills would be valuable, with
particular emphasis on flow visualization and/or microscopy.

Those interested should send cover letter, curriculum vitae, and two
references to:
