Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27599-3250, United States [map]
Subject Area: Cardiovascular Modeling and Simulation
Application Deadline: finished (posted 2013/10/28, finished 2015/01/04, listed until 2014/06/30)
Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

Applications are invited for up to two postdoctoral positions in cardiovascular modeling and simulation. These positions will be part of a new cardiovascular modeling research group being established in 2014 at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in the Applied Mathematics Program and the McAllister Heart Institute at UNC School of Medicine. This group will also interact with the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, the new Department of Applied Physical Sciences at UNC, and others. We especially welcome applicants with a strong interest in and commitment to interdisciplinary research.

One of these positions is expected to be funded by a recently awarded NIH grant to develop large-scale computational models of aneurysmal, dissecting, and dissected aortas. Consequently, applicants are sought with experience in damage and fracture mechanics, simulating tissue growth and remodeling, and/or high-performance scientific computing. Prior experience in a specific area is not required, however, and any applicant with a relevant background and interests will receive full consideration. A Ph.D. in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Bioengineering, or a related field is required.

Starting dates are flexible, but can be no earlier than July 1, 2014. We anticipate the availability of up to two positions, each with a duration of at least two years, subject to the continuing availability of funds. Initial appointments will be for a period of one year. These positions will require no teaching. If desired, however, teaching assignments in the Department of Mathematics are possible.

Please provide via (1) a vita; (2) a research statement; and (3) at least three letters of reference. In addition, applicants must also apply online at to be considered for this position.

The University of North Carolina is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
