Postdoctoral Positions at the University of Pittsburgh in Cellular Mechanics
and Biophysics of Morphogenesis



Postdoctoral Positions are available for highly qualified and motivated
candidates to study the physical principles of morphogenesis in the Davidson
Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of
Bioengineering. The laboratory focuses on studying the molecular-, cellular,
and tissue-scale processes that regulate mechanical properties and
force-production during morphogenesis. Projects involve a combination of
biophysics, cell biology, bioengineering, and embryology.



Candidates will have recently completed a PhD and have strong background in
either biophysics, cell and developmental biology, or cell- and tissue-
mechanics. Candidates with expertise with biochemistry, quantitative
microscopy, microrheology, microfabrication or computer simulation are
preferred. The research environment at the University of Pittsburgh includes
a dynamic community of bioengineers, developmental biologists, cell- and
tissue-level biomechanics, and theoretical biologists. Nearby resources
include the John A. Swanson Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory and the
Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Contemporary Pittsburgh is a diverse
vibrant city undergoing a renaissance led by world class Universities and
the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The University of Pittsburgh is
an Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are especially
encouraged to apply.



Interested applicants should forward their statement of research interests,
CV, and a list references to:
