|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 www.mathjobs.org: (1) a vita; (2) a research statement; and (3) at least three letters of reference. In addition, applicants must also apply online at http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/34254 to be considered for this position.
