• Post-Doctoral Position

    One Postdoctoral Fellow position is available immediately in Bioengineering at the University of Washington in the Averkiou Lab. The successful candidate will join a dynamic research group focusing on developing technologies for ultrasound imaging and therapy. This position will support the activities of an NIH funded project on image-guided cavitation-triggered therapies for treating liver cancer.

    Applicants should have a PhD in bioengineering, electrical/mechanical/chemical engineering, physics, acoustics, optics, or a related field. Successful applicants must have expertise in ultrasound imaging or therapy and a track record of productive research and publications. This position will involve developing ultrasound technology, performing preclinical research, preparing manuscripts, and contributing to grants. Excellent writing and communication skills are required.

    Seattle is a vibrant ultrasound hub with multiple ultrasound companies (Philips, Siemens, Fujifilm, Verasonics, Verathon) and ultrasound research programs in multiple departments at the University of Washington (Bioengineering, CIMU/APL, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Radiology). The University of Washington offers many opportunities to engage in cutting-edge research and is the ideal training ground for postdocs who strive to further develop their skills in pursuit of a career in academia or industry.

    Applicants should send a PDF resume, with contact info for three references, to Dr. Mike Averkiou (maverk@uw.edu).
