Postdoc Positions at UCSF

Sponsored by [email protected]

The HIVE Postdoctoral Fellows Program seeks to inspire and encourage young bioengineers to explore their creativity in addressing the grand challenges of health care in new, innovative and collaborative ways. These challenges include communicating with the brain, regenerating tissues, controlling the immune system, delivering targeted therapeutics, and designing smarter health devices.

The HIVE Postdoctoral Fellows Program is an internal two-year fellowship with the option to re-apply for another year. 

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for this fellowship without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status. Candidates from under-represented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

The selected HIVE postdoc fellows will receive a stipend of $50K- $75K each year, commensurate with post-doctoral experience.

The current opening is for 2-3 HIVE Postdoc Fellows starting early 2020.

    Job Requirements: 

    Applicants should have completed, or are scheduled to complete, their PhD in an engineering, computer science, or related field at time of application.

Applicants must identify at least one engineering mentor or co-mentor who is a member of HIVE’s core faculty or associated faculty, as well as a co-mentor from the basic or clinical sciences at UCSF.
