Positions are available to study the physical principles of morphogenesis in the Mechanics of Morphogenesis / Davidson Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Bioengineering. Our group focuses on studying the molecular, cellular, and tissue-scale processes that regulate mechanical properties and force-production during morphogenesis. Projects can involve quantitative cell biology, biophysics, bioengineering, and embryology.
Postdoctoral candidates will have recently completed a PhD and have a background in either bioengineering, biophysics, cell and developmental biology, or cell- and tissue- mechanics. The research environment at the University of Pittsburgh includes a dynamic community of bioengineers, developmental biologists, cell- and tissue-level biomechanics, and theoretical biologists. Nearby resources include the Peterson Institute of NanoScience and Engineering and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Contemporary Pittsburgh is a diverse vibrant city undergoing a renaissance led by world class Universities and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The University of Pittsburgh is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
