The Division of Cardiovascular Health and Disease is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow. This is an extramurally-funded postdoctoral position in the Image-guided Ultrasound Therapeutics Laboratories is available to develop ultrasound-mediated therapeutic delivery to treat arterial disease and to develop passive cavitation imaging to monitor the therapeutic delivery. The overall goal of the project is to develop targeted, echogenic agents with therapeutic loading that would be ultrasonically triggered by a catheter in arteries to improve blood flow. Passive and active ultrasound imaging approaches will be implemented to monitor theragnostic agents and provide feedback for optimization of therapeutic delivery. These research programs involve both in vitro and in vivo animal studies. The postdoctoral fellows will collaborate with basic scientists and clinicians.
The postdoctoral fellows will perform in vitro studies to provide important new information and assist in the development of a Boston Scientific EkoSonic endovascular system to improve blood flow after stent deployment in the coronaries and peripheral arteries. The fellow will use B-Mode and passive cavitation imaging (PCI) on a GPU to create a real-time feedback system for optimal drug delivery. The fellow will develop PCI and B-mode imaging algorithms for a standard clinical linear array (for use in peripheral arteries) and phased-array (for use in coronary arteries).
A Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or another related discipline is required.
Additional Qualifications Considered
Strong experience in experimental biomedical ultrasound or acoustic imaging are preferred.
