POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW- CFD Modeling of Airways
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
Academic / Research
Internal Number: 140503
The Respiratory Aerodynamics Group is looking to hire a talented Research Fellow/Associate who is passionate about scientific discovery and has a desire to be competitive at the highest level.
The Bates Lab studies airflow in patients with respiratory disease using virtual airway models based on medical images. We simulate respiratory airflow in these airways using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to determine how a particular patient's airway anatomy is contributing to difficulties in breathing. We study children with diseases including obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), tracheomalacia, and subglottic stenoses.
Project deliverables include: 1) Creating virtual models of the upper airway from medical imaging. 2) Running simulations of respiratory airflow in the airway of children. 3) Writing scientific papers and presenting work at scientific conferences.
MAJOR DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Design, execute, and record laboratory experiments, and analyze the data.
Research and improve current methods and evaluate innovative techniques. Implement this knowledge in the Division/Department.
Present research at laboratory meetings, journal clubs, seminars, and meetings.
Draft, write, and edit scientific reports, papers, journal articles, abstracts, and grants.
Maintain currency in field through continuing education, literature, and seminars.
Attend required Cincinnati Children's training sessions and ensure regulatory compliance with all policies and procedures.
Perform other duties as assigned.
