       Postdoctoral Fellowship:
       Magnetic drug targeting and cancer research in the brain.
       The Department of Neurosurgery and Bioengineering, Linninger Research Group, are seeking outstanding candidates for a research fellowship in drug delivery
       for diseases of the Central Nervous System including cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease.

       The objective of the project is to design gene therapies for diseases of the Central Nervous System and nanoparticles for targeted delivery in chemotherapy.
       Research will involve cooperation with the UIC 3T medical Imagining Center, the departments of Neurosurgery, and Pharmacology. Research work will involve
       medical image analysis, experimental design both in vitro and in vivo, as well as collaboration with CFD engineers that aim at predicting drug biodistribution
       using rigorous computational fluid mechanics methods. A more detailed description can be found here.
.
       Candidates are expected to have a background in the areas of Biochemistry, Computational Fluid Mechanics, Bioengineering, or Medical imaging. Candidates
       are also expected to be familiar with in vitro cell work, histology, and cell imaging, at the basic biochemical level. Prior experience with the use of
       DICOM medical images or CFD software are a plus.

       Interested candidates please send resume and 3 letters of reference to:
       Mr. Kevin Tangen at westcampuslppd@gmail.com
       Department of Bioengineering, Department of Neurosurgery,
       University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL

       The position will initially be for one year with possible extensions. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications of the candidate.
       Review of candidate applications will begin November 2015 and remain open until the position is filled.
       
       
       Research fellowship in brain research and physiology.
       The Department of Neurosurgery and Bioengineering, Linninger Research Group, are seeking outstanding candidates for research in the area of water
       transport in neurological diseases with specific attention to water exchange in the brain in hydrocephalus, edema, and traumatic brain injury.
       Specifically this project will give opportunities to develop microfluidic devices for studying water transfer across the blood brain barrier through
       Aquaporin channels.

       The aim of the project is to determine water exchange across the blood brain barrier both experimentally in vitro as well as in vivo through small
       animal models. The candidate will have ample opportunity to interact with the 9T Imaging facility at UIC, the Neurosurgery Department, and the
       Department of Bioengineering. A more detailed description can be found here.
.
       Fellows should have a strong background in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Bioengineering, or Chemical Engineering. The candidates are
       expected to have fundamental training in methods including 3D confocal microscopy, cell culture, cell staining, fluorescence imaging, and microfluidic devices.

       Interested candidates please send resume and 3 letters of reference to:
