The Associate in Research position involves assisting in research in the laboratory of Dr. David F. Katz in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. The tasks of the position involve both experimental and mathematical/computational work, as supervised and assisted by Dr. Katz and other members of the laboratory. The experimental work will include measurements ex vivo of the mechanical properties of tissue from several organs, including the liver and cervix. Additional experiments may involve measurements of the rheological properties of hydrogels, and the use of a custom built confocal Raman spectrometer to measure transport of select molecules into and through tissue specimens ex vivo. Performance of these experiments will include specimen preparation and post-experiment assessment, and quantitative analysis of the data obtained, e.g. chemometric analysis of the Raman spectra. The mathematical/computational work will involve development, solution and results interpretation of equations that characterize the transport of select molecules in multiple drug delivery modalities into tissues and the bloodstream. This work is deterministic, with pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic outcomes. It will involve expertise in solving ordinary and partial differential equations, analytically and numerically. Some experience in applied statistics is beneficial.
