Job Details

Engineering Post-Doctoral Associate

 

Weill Cornell Medical College, Department of Radiology has a position available for an Engineering Postdoctoral Associate for up to 2 years in its Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging. The institute is comprised of faculty, researchers and students from the fields of engineering, computer science, epidemiology, cardiology, and radiology. You will work under the supervision of our director James K. Min, M.D. The research labs, overseen by Assistant Professors Bobak Mosadegh and Simon Dunham, are working to develop technologies for diagnostic and therapeutic applications for treatment of atrial fibrillation, by addressing cardiac mapping and ablation. The research will draw on an interdisciplinary approach that couples soft robotics and flexible electronics to develop novel sensing arrays.

 

Positions Available

 

Soft Robotics Engineer

 

Duties and Responsibilities: The Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging at the Weill Cornell Medical College seeks a talented and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow or research scientist to develop next-generation soft robotic machines. Applicants should have extensive experience in working with actuation and control systems. Strong applicants will have experience working with elastomeric actuators, soft lithography, and pneumatic/hydraulic systems. Additionally, proficient knowledge of 3D CAD software (e.g., solidworks, autocad), programming software (e.g., LabView, MATLAB), and FEM software (e.g., COMSOL, Abaqus) is necessary.

 

Qualifications: PhD, in mechanical, electrical, or biomedical engineering, or other related fields.

 

 

Flexible Biosensor Engineer

 

Duties and Responsibilities: The Dalio Institute of Cardiovascular Imaging at the Weill Cornell Medical College seeks a talented and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow or research scientist to develop next-generation flexible electronic biosensors. Applicants should have extensive experience in microelectronics and microfabrication. Strong applicants will have experience working with soft or flexible electronics, biosensors, and/or organics electronics. Applicants are expected to have a solid background in principles of electrical circuits and microfabrication processes. Additionally, applicants are expected to understand the basic processing, properties and mechanics of soft materials. Experience with biosensing, catheter design, and/or construction of biomedical devices is strongly desired, but not necessary.

 

Qualifications: PhD, in mechanical, materials, electrical, or other related fields.

 

Minimum Requirements

Must have a Ph.D. in an engineering field.

Proven ability to work in a collaborative and professional manner, reflective of the Dalio ICI multidisciplinary culture.

 

Application Instructions:

1. Please email a CV and cover letter (both are required) to Dr. Dunham at sid2012@med.cornell.edu.
