As an integral member of a highly interdisciplinary research team, the postdoc will have opportunities to address a diverse range of research challenges. These opportunities include, but are not limited to: (1) optimizing hardware and software for real-time measurement and reporting of cerebral hemodynamics; (2) carrying out pre-clinical research in piglet models to demonstrate efficacy of optically-directed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR); and (3) harnessing cerebral hemodynamic data from optical measurements in human patients and piglet models to illuminate etiologies of neurological injury during CPR and cardiopulmonary bypass. During the course of the position, the postdoc will be expected to initiate or contribute to composition and submission of grants, to supervise junior lab members, and to publish his/her research. The postdoctoral experience will serve to extend, refine and enhance skills necessary for professional and career development in academia or industry.
