The Biodesign Laboratory at UCSF, led by Dr. Shuvo Roy, is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on The Kidney Project (http://pharm.ucsf.edu/kidney), a multidisciplinary team of academic and industry researchers who are applying MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) and tissue engineering strategies to create a surgically implantable bioartifical kidney for end-stage renal disease patients.
The prospective postdoc will contribute to developing an implantable device suitable for preclinical testing in collaboration with nephrologists, biomedical engineers, and transplant surgeons. More specifically, this individual will be working on medical device experiment plans and studies necessary to transition the device from preclinical to clinical trials.
The successful candidate should have a PhD degree in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, or a closely related field in biomedical sciences, and prior hands-on experience with medical devices is required. Hands-on skills with experimental setups and the ability to communicate well, both verbal and written, with collaborators across desciplines is essential. Prior experience with blood contacting devices, dialysis technology, or membrane separations experimental work is preferred.
