Washington University in St. Louis is seeking to fill a full-time post-doctoral research associate position. Individuals in the proposed position will assist in developing and conducting experimental research projects focused on the role of mechanobiology and hemodynamics in thrombosis and hemostasis, and/or the role of platelets in inflammation. The work is partially sponsored by the National Science Foundation and is directed by David Bark. The position will involve experimental design, data analysis and documentation of experiment results. You will work on an exciting interdisciplinary team comprised of engineers, biologists, and clinicians, while being based at the Wash U medical campus.

The project is focused on investigating how platelets, sense, respond to, and produce forces in a flow environment. Results from this work could lead to improvement in how we treat bleeding disorders and thrombosis, where the latter is the major cause for heart attacks and strokes. Expertise in both computational analysis and experimental techniques in mechanobiology is highly desired. Experience with microfluidics, platelets, and protein printing are also welcome. A PhD in engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, or another related field is required for this position. Candidates should have peer-reviewed publications, a strong work ethic, great communication skills, organization skills to handle multiple projects, an ability to independently conduct research, and an ability/interest to work in a team environment while supporting students within the lab.

The environment is supportive of individual development, with the aim of training applicants to become independent.
