Three Postdoctoral Positions in Cardiovascular Engineering

The Department of Biomedical Engineering in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for three postdoctoral scholar positions in the areas of (1) Cardiovascular Mechanics, (2) Heart Valve Engineering, and (3) Cardiac MRI Imaging. We seek qualified candidates with a strong background in computational modeling either in fluid or solid mechanics, strong programming background with application in MRI/Ultrasound and/or experimental expertise with heart valves.

Open Ph.D. Position in Multiscale Cardiac Modeling at University of South Carolina

I have an open Ph.D. position on multiscale modeling of congenital heart disease. Candidates with M.S. or B.S. degree with background in fluid/solid mechanics, material science and applied mathematics with strong academic record are encouraged to apply. The project has both computational and experimental components. Interested candidates may send a CV and name of two references to arashkh@sc.edu. Further information about my group can be obtained from: http://www.me.sc.edu/fs/kheradvar.html.

Effect of Fiber Geometry on Pulsatile Pumping and Energy Expenditure

Myocardial fiber orientation is a topic that has recently received much attention in connection with cardiac pumping function. The twisting motion of the cardiac base to apex can be a direct result of this geometric orientation of these fibers. One important question that has not been addressed yet is whether there is any relationship between the contractile energy expenditure and the geometric orientation of myocardial fibers. In the present work, we study the effect of contractile fiber orientation on pumping function.

Characterization of myocardial viscoelastic behavior based on ventricular harmonic motion

Our current ability to accurately measure ventricular global contractile behavior remains unsatisfactory due to the lack of quantitative diagnostic indexes that can assess the mechanical properties of myocardial tissue.
