The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at University of Virginia is seeking highly qualified applicants for a Research Associate position to work under the supervision of Dr. Nathan Swami within a project on sensors for detection of extracellular vesicles and biomolecular markers from biological fluids.

This research work is in the field of electrical and electrochemical measurement of receptor binding to target biomolecules that are extracted from biological fluids and biopsies. Specific skills include expertise in principles of electrical and electrochemical measurement, biofunctionalization methods, microfabrication and nanostructure synthesis, sensor device integration. Experience in maintaining and troubleshooting electrochemical instrumentation, 3D printing of structures, and biofabrication are recommended. Other duties outside the lab include lab protocol maintenance, data analytics, attending research team meetings, co-advising Ph.D. students, helping co-write manuscripts for publication and formulation of ideas for grant applications. Incumbents will also receive support and mentoring in ways to improve research skills, the preparation of grant proposals, and responsible research practices.

                              

QUALIFICATIONS: A Doctoral degree in an engineering or science discipline with training in electrochemical sensing is required by the start date. Research experience in biosensing, biofabrication and device integration beyond that from Ph.D. research work is preferred. Outstanding interpersonal, written, and verbal communication, and analytic skills are required. The candidate must be able to work in a lab environment and remotely from home, as necessary.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Apply online at https://uva.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UVAJobs and attach a curriculum vitae, cover letter, and contact information for three references.

Please note that multiple documents can be uploaded in the CV box. 

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Review of applications will begin on January 31, 2022, and the posting will remain open until filled. The University will perform background checks on all new hires prior to employment.

This is a one-year appointment that may be renewed for up to two additional one-year terms, contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance.

For questions regarding this position, please contact Nathan Swami, Professor, at nswami@virginia.edu.

For questions regarding the application process, contact Rich Haverstrom, Faculty Search Advisor, at rkh6j@virginia.edu.
