  • Funded Post-Doctoral/Research Scientist Position in Brain Injury Biomechanics @ University of Texas at San Antonio

    The Memar Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is accepting applications for an immediate fully funded post-doctoral/research scientist position in injury biomechanics and computational modeling of traumatic brain injury. This position is highly collaborative and will involve working closely with a multidisciplinary team from UTSA, Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Children Hospital of Philadelphia. The position is available to start immediately, initially for 16 months with possibility of renewal dependent on performance and available funding.

    Required Qualifications:
    • Doctoral or master degree in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field
    • Strong background in finite element modeling and injury biomechanics
    • Strong experience in LS-DYNA and Matlab
    • Strong publication track record
    • Strong written and oral English communication skills
    Desired qualifications:
    • Experience in traumatic brain injury and multi-scale computational modeling of brain
    • Experience in brain imaging and image processing
    • Experience in continuum constitutive modeling and material testing
    • Knowledge of machine learning and statistical methods
    • Experience in writing finite element codes, user subroutines and Python codes
    Experience in conducting animal experiments would also be a plus.

    Interested applicants can send their application materials including cover letter, CV, names and contact information of three references, copies of relevant scientific publications to Dr. Marzieh Hajiaghamemar at marzieh.memar@utsa.edu
