The Exciting Opportunity
Pioneer the emerging field of bioelectronic medicine and uncover molecular mechanisms underlying the biological effects of electromagnetic fields in a team-oriented and innovation focused research environment.
The biological effects of electromagnetic fields (e.g. WiFi, bluetooth, radiowaves etc) are poorly understood. We recently uncovered a novel molecular mechanism underlying the interaction of fields with biology (Carter et. al., Cell Metabolism 2020). Now, we are charging forward at the speed of light to understand more about the biological interactions with fields. We are actively developing innovative medical devices that employ electromagnetic fields to ameliorate disease. We seek highly motivated scientists and engineers who are passionate about discovery and dedicated to translating discoveries from bench to bedside in the form of disruptive medical devices. This is a unique position that offers scientists the opportunity to serve at the forefront of bioelectronic medicines and to make huge impacts in the development of breakthrough medical technologies for immediate clinical testing.
Our group is an interdisciplinary team of bioengineers, scientists and clinicians working to disrupt medicine by harnessing the therapeutic potential of electrons. Our team is comprised of leading experts in bioelectronic medicine, engineering, genetics, neuroscience, oncology, metabolism and biochemistry. The scientist will work closely with a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, engineers and scientists to uncover the metabolic and molecular mechanisms underlying therapeutic effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields. The scientist will have the opportunity to publish in high impact journals and serve as inventor/co-inventor on patents.
The scientist will have responsibilities with the following specific tasks: design and conduct of preclinical and clinical basic research, generating design concepts and engineering drawings; building device prototypes for testing and evaluation; conducting bench-top testing and participating in preclinical, and clinical testing of devices; market research; project coordination for assigned projects; and assistance with clinical and research protocol development, grant submissions, and progress reporting. Must be able to multitask and work in a collaborative team environment. Familiarity with finite element modeling and machining skills (e.g., CNC mill using CAM, lathe, etc.) is desirable.
