Senior Research Associate, Pediatric Cardiology

Investigators within the division of Pediatric Cardiology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), The Congenital Heart Collaborative at University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, and the UH Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute are looking for an enthusiastic, well-trained individual to become the project manager and lead researcher of a newly established laboratory working on novel devices for pediatric cardiovascular applications. Project opportunities include organizing and carrying out large animal research, including bioresorbable stent implantation and evaluation (angiography, intravascular ultrasound, and optical coherence tomography [OCT]), implantation of intracardiac devices both on and off cardiopulmonary bypass, and pathological evaluation of bioresorbable implants. The project manager would also oversee all regulatory and administrative responsibilities within CWRU, UH, and other participating collaborative institutions.

Applicants would preferably have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering (BME) or a related field. Experience with large animal research and some familiarity with the rules and requirements of the Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) would be preferred, but not required. Applicants with prior project manager experience or a demonstrated history of serving in a laboratory leadership role will be given preferential consideration.

Successful applicants will be expected to work in an interdisciplinary team, including coordination with research and clinical collaborators and providing leadership to junior researchers, including undergraduate and graduate BME, medical students, residents and fellows.
