A postdoctoral scholar position in bioelectronic medicine is immediately available in the Ray Research Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The appointee will work on an NIH-funded (see: applied clinical research project. The role will involve developing a wearable sensing system to quantify various biomechanical and exercise metrics relevant to diabetes. This is a unique opportunity for a scientist to directly impact patients’ lives in a clinical setting. Our research covers a wide range of high-impact topics ranging from advanced materials development to integration of multimodal physiological sensing for clinical applications.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, bio/biomedical engineering, or related disciplines, with pertinent experience demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications. Hands-on experience preferred in at least two of the following areas: electrochemistry, polymer chemistry, microfluidics, paper-based sensors, sensor fabrication, wearable devices. The appointee will interface with engineers (electrical / mechanical), chemists, physicians and industry and thus expected to have multidisciplinary experience in related areas. Complementary training will be provided on all the instrumentation available in the laboratory.
