Requisition Number:



Boulder, Colorado

Employment Type:

Research Faculty



Date Posted:


Job Summary

The FLOWLab directed by Prof. Debanjan Mukherjee encourages applications for a Post-Doctoral Scholar under the scope of an NIH funded project on embolic stroke biomechanics! The researcher will develop novel tools and platforms for in-silico analysis of embolic stroke etiology and embolus source destination mapping. 

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Who We Are

The FLOWLab at CU Boulder ( is an inter-disciplinary research group investigating a wide range of flow physics and transport phenomena in the context of physiological and biomedical systems. FLOWLab's biofluids research endeavors are based on core skills in computational models for flow and transport phenomena; quantitative analysis of medical images and clinical data; and experimental investigations. Our research is extensively supported through collaborations with academia, industry, and clinical partners. As an interdisciplinary research group set within an outstanding institution, we remain fiercely committed towards promoting a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds, especially those which are traditionally under-represented.

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

This position will be involved in conducting research on cerebrovascular hemodynamics and the etiology of embolic strokes. This will involve a variety of tasks including multi-modal medical image processing, computational fluid dynamics modeling, and data analytics. Ability to integrate novel image processing techniques or data science principles into the investigations will be considered favorably. Candidate will also be involved in regular research group operations, and may be involved with activities such as mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students in the group. Candidate will be expected to regularly contribute to research articles and conference presentations/abstracts based on the results from their research as part of the project.
