The Szablowski Lab for Noninvasive Neuroengineering at Rice University is looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow in the fields of bioengineering and neuroengineering. We offer multidisciplinary training with a high degree of academic freedom in the choice of high-impact projects.
This is an open-rank position with flexibility in choice of projects that include the following topics:
– focused ultrasound stimulation for noninvasive neuromodulation (see: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41551-018-0258-2)
– Directed evolution of proteins for therapy (see: https://www.nature.com/articles/nbt.1609) – Neuroscience and biomarker discovery
– unconventional traumatic brain injury
– Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease murine models
The long-term outcomes:
Each project is designed to form the basis of an independent research program and geared towards candidates looking to establish independent labs. Many of our projects will have a clear-cut path to clinical translation, taking advantage of our proximity to the country’s biggest medical center. Our department, Rice University’s Department of Bioengineering, is consistently ranked top 10 in the nation with resources and recognition aiding the success of our trainees. The department maintains close ties to nearby medical institutions including Baylor College of Medicine and MD Anderson Cancer Center. The campus is located in Houston – the fourth largest and one of the most diverse cities in the US that provides affordable living with warm weather all year round.
Funding security: Our lab has currently has over $2m funding spread amount 5 different funding sources ranging from discretionary funds, through private foundation funding (e.g. Welch, Dunn, BBRF), to federal contracts. This gives us a degree of flexibility in choosing the projects and ensures the possibility of providing multi-year positions.
Working environment and collaborations:
As a postdoctoral fellow in our group, you will be interacting and collaborating with the broader community within Rice Bioengineering (bioengineering.rice.edu), Rice Neuroengineering Initiative (neuroengineering.rice.edu), and our collaborators at Southwest primate center, and Baylor College of Medicine.
Mentorship and career development:
We spend a significant amount of effort on career development of the trainees, as can be evidenced by their success. This includes multiple NSF awards in just the first year of lab’s operation, the PIs award for undergraduate mentorship, and placement of our first graduating student in a top 5 Bioengineering program. Each student, postdoc, technician, has an individualized plan for career development that suits their interest with a goal of forming a sustained long-term career.
