Postdoctoral Research Associate in Cardiovascular Modeling and Simulation

Applications are invited for up to two postdoctoral positions in cardiovascular modeling and simulation. These positions will be part of a new cardiovascular modeling research group being established in 2014 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Applied Mathematics Program and the McAllister Heart Institute at UNC School of Medicine. This group will also interact with the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, the new Department of Applied Physical Sciences at UNC, and others.

One of these positions is expected to be funded by a recently awarded NIH grant to develop large-scale computational models of aneurysmal, dissecting, and dissected aortas. Consequently, applicants are sought with experience in damage and fracture mechanics, simulating tissue growth and remodeling, and/or high-performance scientific computing.

Prior experience in a specific area is not required, however, and any applicant with a relevant background and interests will receive full consideration.

Please provide via (1) a vita; (2) a research statement; and (3) at least three letters of reference.

In addition, applicants must also apply online at to be considered for this position.

The University of North Carolina is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
