Postdoc Opening

  • Description

The Aliabouzar lab at the University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to develop ultrasound-based technologies for micron-scale tissue characterization. Broadly, the project will investigate how ultrasound-induced bubbles can be used to probe into viscoelasticity of the surrounding medium. The postdoctoral fellow will benefit from both conducting experiments and applying numerical techniques.

  • Responsibilities

The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for planning and executing experiments, programming, preparing manuscripts, presenting at conferences, and mentoring students.

  • Required Qualifications

Earned a doctorate in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or related fields

Proficiency with signal processing, and image processing

Familiarity with bubble dynamics

Able to undertake benchtop ultrasound experiments as well as programming

Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English

Productive publication record

Interested candidates should submit a single pdf file containing the followings: 1) cover letter highlighting research interests and qualifications, 2) resume/CV, and 3) list of three references.
