A NIH-funded postdoctoral research position is available in the at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYIT-COM) in collaboration with the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences – Long Island Campus. The primary objective of this position is the experimental and computational characterization of potential mechanisms contributing to endothelial tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNAP) – driven vascular calcification and acceleration of atherosclerosis (PMC4845279, PMC5638543).
The applicant must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in Biochemistry, Biophysics, Biomedical Engineering, Engineering or a related discipline. A strong background in computational modeling (supported by peer-reviewed publications) and motivation to pursue biomedical research are required. Ideally, the candidate will have expertise in more than one of the following areas: cardiovascular research, surface metrology, micro-CT, finite element analysis, and CFD-FSI computational modeling.
Responsibilities will include development and execution of experiments, data analysis, computational modeling, manuscript preparation, and working with collaborators and other members of the research team at the College of Osteopathic Medicine and College of Engineering and Computing Sciences at the New York Institute of Technology- Long Island Campus. Applicants must be self-motivated, methodical, detail-oriented, and possess excellent oral and written communication skills.
This is a 12-months full-time position with a possibility of extension pending competitive funding. The successful candidate will be encouraged to apply for extramural postdoctoral fellowships.
