Postdoctoral Positions

Postdoctoral Position in Applied neurovascular imaging 

There is an opening for a full-time Postdoctoral Fellow in the research group of Dr. Molly Bright to develop advanced MRI techniques to assess the interaction of neural activity and vascular physiology. These techniques will be applied in several collaborative themes, studying novel therapeutics in rehabilitation, exploring brain-body relationships in aging, and characterizing motor impairment and plasticity in children and adults following stroke. There is opportunity and support for the Fellow to initiate and lead new directions in basic and clinical research. This position is for a minimum of 2 years with the possibility to extend. Further information and details of how to apply can be found at

Postdoctoral position in Organic Bioelectronics

A postdoctoral position is currently available jointly in the laboratories of Dr. Jonathan Rivnay and Dr. Guillermo Ameer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University, to develop novel functional materials for applications in bioelectronics and regenerative engineering. The project involves synthesis, processing and characterization of electroactive materials. Successful candidates should be highly motivated and have a Ph.D. with a strong background in synthesis of organic electronic materials (conjugated polymers/small molecules) and/or biomaterials, and should have a background in physical, optical and/or electrochemical materials characterization. The Rivnay group explores the unique aspects of electrically and optically active polymers for sensing and actuation to address mismatches at the biotic/abiotic interface. For more information on Dr. Rivnay’s research visit The Ameer group studies biomaterials and cell-material interactions, and develops novel approaches for tissue engineering, wound healing, and targeted delivery. For more information visit, The position may be based in Northwestern’s Chicago and/or Evanston campuses, and will be affiliated with the Simpson Querrey Institute.

Application Instructions:
Interested individuals should send a C.V., the names of three references, and a cover letter describing research interests and accomplishments and how these align with the posted position and the interests of the Rivnay and Ameer research groups. These items should be combined in a single pdf and emailed to:
