Current Job Opportunities
BioFrontiers is an interdisciplinary research initiative involving Physics, Biology and other science and engineering disciplines.
We are currently searching for a tenure-track faculty member to establish a significant research presence with a substantial publication and grant award record in BioPhysics and also teach in the Physics Department.
Assistant Professor - BioPhysics
This position will involve experimental research combining physics and its application to biological and medical issues. The position will involve biological techniques such as cell culturing and other wet-lab biological techniques. Furthermore this person will actively collaborate with the physics faculty in developing new techniques for characterizing and manipulating cells and tissues. This position will require writing of grant proposals and establishing an externally funded research program. Position will include instruction at the graduate and undergraduate level and mentoring of PhD students. The work will be primarily experimental in nature.

Research Associate - Theoretical Biophysics
The BioFrontiers Center at UCCS is an interdisciplinary research initiative involving Physics, Biology and other science and engineering disciplines. This position will involve theoretical research on the borderline between Biophysics and Soft Condensed Matter with the goal of connecting these two broad areas of science. The work will involve theoretical calculations, developing models and using simulations. Some of the projects that the Research Associate may be involved with include:
- developing models of dielectric and magnetic nanoparticles for use in magnetic hyperthermia or as MRI contrast agents
- determining the effective dielectric properties of cells under various conditions such as electroporation
- developing models for membrane curvature and its influence on membrane function
The successful applicant will also be encouraged to develop their own research projects, with the aid of faculty within BioFrontiers. The work will be theoretical in nature but collaborations with experimentalists in BioFrontiers will be encouraged.
