The Image-guided Ultrasound Therapeutics Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati is seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the area of Biomedical Ultrasound. More information is available below:
An extramurally-funded postdoctoral position in the Image-guided Ultrasound Therapeutics Laboratories is available to develop passive cavitation imaging to monitor histotrispy-based sonothrombolysis. The overall goal of the project is to develop a combined ablation and targeted thrombolytic histotripsy technique that lyses stiff thrombi in the deep veins, decreasing the risk of pulmonary embolism. The postdoctoral fellow will be mentored by basic scientists and clinicians.
The postdoctoral fellow will perform in vitro and in vivo porcine studies to provide important new information and assist in the design of a histotripsy system for use in the deep veins of the legs. The fellow will use duplex Doppler and passive cavitation imaging (PCI) on a GPU to create a real-time feedback system for optimal thrombolysis. The fellow will develop PCI and duplex Doppler flow imaging algorithms for a standard clinical linear array.
A Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or another related discipline and strong experience in experimental biomedical ultrasound or acoustic imaging are preferred. The position has an initial appointment of one-year and is renewable for a second year. The University of Cincinnati offers a competitive salary and benefits structure, in addition to career building activities and mentoring for future work in academia and industry.
Applications or questions regarding the position should be directed to Christy K. Holland, PhD and Kevin J. Haworth, PhD. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vita and references.
