  • Research Scientist Position in Biomedical Engineering at ColumbiaUniversity

    A permanent research scientist opportunity is now available at the Bone
    Bioengineering Labratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering,
    Columbia University in city of New York. The P.I. is Professor X. Edward
    Guo. The successful candidate must have expertise in a field related to
    biomechanics, mechanobiology, or biomedical imaging, such as mechanical
    engineering, biomedical engineering, or cellular biology. Areas of research
    expertise may include, but are not limited to, tissue biomechanics, tissue
    engineering, mechnotransduction, and biomedical imaging analysis.
    Applicants with a fundamental research focus on orthopedic bioengineering
    are especially encouraged to apply. Potential candidates are expected to
    have a strong portfolio of scholarly research including peer-reviewed
    publications, experience with proposal writing and providing guidance to
    graduate students, and evidence of independent research effort. Besides
    performing innovative research, the candidate will participate in writing
    research papers, presenting the results at varies international conferences,
    supporting the group's effort in securing research funds by participating in
    grant writing and similar activities, and supervising graduate students and
    junior postdocs.

    We seek highly motivated individuals who enjoy working in a team while
    concomitantly desiring to pursue their own ideas in a very supportive
    environment. The focus of this position is to combine biomechanical,
    engineering concepts along with imaging techniques to advance the
    understanding of mechanotransduction in bone remodeling processes or imaging
    analysis/computational analysis of clinical skeletal images. This is a full
    time position with University officer benefits and provides exceptional
    opportunities for research and career development.

    Facilities for research include an established laboratory for hard/soft
    tissue mechanics (both theoretical and experimental studies),
    micro-indentation, AFM, cellular imaging, micropatterning of cell networks,
    cell biomechanics, bone cell mechanotransduction, bone explant
    mechanobiology, and bone imaging. Additional information can be found at, or by contacting Dr. X. Edward Guo
    (address below).


    The candidate should hold a Ph.D. or its professional equivalent. Two or
    more years postdoc experience is beneficial. Associate Research Scientists
    at Columbia SEAS are junior officers who have demonstrated innovation and
    excellence in research. Candidates are evaluated on research ability and
    required expertise.

    Salary will be set to a level appropriate for a research assistant professor
    in biomedical sciences at a tier I research university and commensurate with
    relevant experience. The position includes an excellent benefits package.

    Interested candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and
    contact information for three references to Dr. X. Edward Guo

    The search will close no sooner than 6/31, 2010 and remain open until the
    position is filled.
    Columbia University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
