    Post-doctoral Fellow: Computational Modeling of Drug Delivery Systems

    Our laboratory working is seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow with strong background in mathematical modeling, computer simulations and image processing. The fellow will work on a NIH funded project that aims to quantify transport parameters relevant for drug delivery from in vivo fluorescence microscopy image data, and integrate these into mathematical models to predict drug delivery kinetics - with specific application towards thermally sensitive liposomes. The ultimate goal is to employ in vivo validated computer models to evaluate novel liposome formulations, and optimize liposomes for specific tumors and specific drugs.

    The Fellow will be expected to independently design mathematical models, analyze image data and develop image processing algorithms, assist in the preparation of grants and manuscripts, present findings at scientific meetings, and mentor graduate and undergraduate students.

    The position is for 2 years, with option for renewal for an additional year depending on performance.

    Required qualifications:
    -PhD in biomedical engineering, computer science, or related field
    -experience mathematical modeling and computer simulation (e.g. Matlab, Comsol, Ansys, Abaqus)
    -experience in image processing (e.g. Slicer, VTK/ITK, MevisLab)
    -expertise in development of instrumentation is of benefit (hardware/software)
    -fluent spoken and written english
