A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic to study the interaction of nanomaterials with the immune system in animal models. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team of investigators with primary focus on cancer immunology.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in immunology, molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field. The successful candidate should have demonstrated expertise in animal models of cancer and in immunological techniques, including immune cell isolation, flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry. Special consideration will be given to applicants with a background in the study of nanomaterial interactions with the immune system.

Preferred qualifications include an in-depth understanding of cancer immunotherapy; design of nanoparticles; and light-tissue and light-material interactions.

Prospective candidates must be creative, self-motivated, capable of working independently, proficient in both spoken and written communication in English. Candidates will be expected to design and conduct experiments, statistically analyze data and write manuscripts and reports.

Interested candidates should submit a brief summary of research expertise, curriculum vitae and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Vijay Krishna (krishnv2@ccf.org).

A postdoctoral fellow position is available at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the field of clinical neuroscience and neuro-rehabilitation. This is an exciting opportunity to join a laboratory that identifies mechanisms of plasticity and capitalizes on restorative mechanisms using rehabilitation and brain stimulation techniques to promote neurologic recovery.  

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in one or more ongoing clinical trials and neuroscientific studies involving brain stimulation, rehabilitation/training and structural and functional neuroimaging.  The position requires a highly creative, motivated and independent individual with a Ph.D. in kinesiology, rehabilitation science, exercise science/physiology, biomechanics and movement science, neuroscience, or biomedical engineering or a related field. Candidates must demonstrate this experience through a record of relevant publications. Strong laboratory and clinical research skills, ability to lead as well as work well in a team, an understanding of human neuro-motor control in health and disease, and basic knowledge of human neuro-imaging would be desirable. Past experience in medical research is not required, but candidates must be willing to perform experiments in clinical settings. The successful candidate will be expected to interface with clinical staff, clinical coordinators, graduate students and fellows as well as participate in independent laboratory research. It would be desirable if candidates can begin in fall 2018.

A postdoctoral fellow position is available at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the field of clinical neuroscience and neuro-rehabilitation. This is an exciting opportunity to join a laboratory that studies mechanisms of brain plasticity in neurologic recovery and targets these mechanisms with the use of behavioral and neuro-stimulation interventions to promote recovery. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and neuroscientific studies, including an ongoing FDA-regulated clinical trial combining the use of non-invasive (transcranial) and invasive (deep) brain stimulation, and stroke recovery studies involving movement rehabilitation and neuroimaging.  

The position requires a highly creative, motivated and independent individual with a Ph.D. in kinesiology, rehabilitation science, exercise science/physiology, biomechanics and movement science, neuroscience, biomedical engineering or a related field. Candidates must demonstrate this experience through a record of relevant publications.
