Brown University: Postdoctoral Research Associate in Biomechanics, Bioengineering, or Muscle Biology

A postdoctoral position is available to study elastic mechanisms in muscle function in the laboratory of Thomas Roberts. The project uses animal models, isolated muscle measurements, and modeling to study how elastic structures influence muscle function. Candidates with a background in biomechanics, bioengineering, or muscle biology are encouraged to apply. Desirable experience includes isolated muscle mechanical measurements, materials testing, and/or in silico or physical modeling of mechanical phenomena. Minimum requirements are a Ph.D. in biology or engineering, and an established record of research in bioengineering or muscle physiology. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statements of research goals, and names of three references via Interfolio at Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled or the search is closed.
