Postdoctoral Fellowship Available: Hemodynamics of vascular aging (CLOSED: see comment)

Stemming from our involvement in the NIH's ARIC and VALIDATE studies, we have begun investigating the relationship between carotid artery flow dynamics and vascular aging. The focus will be on three-dimensional (CFD) and/or one-dimensional (wave propagation) analyses as they relate to systemic cardiovascular risk factors and image-derived vascular pathology. We are seeking a talented postdoctoral fellow to help lead this project. Qualifications include:
  • MD, or PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Physiology or related area
  • Broad understanding of vascular physiology and hemodynamics
  • Ability to communicate with clinicians and epidemiologists.
  • Some experience with medical image analysis, time-series analysis, and multivariate statistics
  • Background and experience in 3D and/or 1D vascular modelling preferred.
  • Ability to travel to U.S. for meetings with ARIC and VALIDATE collaborators.
To apply, please email me a cover letter outlining your qualifications and interest for this position; a detailed curriculum vitae; and the names and contact information of at least three references. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.


  1. Thanks to all who applied. I have made an offer to a candidate who was uniquely qualified for all aspects of the position, and I expect my offer to be accepted.

    However, there is a chance that another PDF position might be offered in the next few months pending some funding decisions, so keep your eyes on this blog.

  2. Prof. Steinman, are you taking MASc graduate students applied to Biomedical Engineering for the fall 2011 ?

  3. Prof. Steinman, are you taking MASc students for the fall 2016??
