Surgical Research Fellow - Biomedical Engineering-2015531
The Carnegie Mellon Biomedical Engineering department seeks to transform healthcare worldwide through interdisciplinary engineering innovation and to train future leaders and innovators in biomedical engineering.
We are seeking a Surgical Research Fellow and the responsibilities include the planning and execution of novel long and short-term in vivo surgical experiments on both large and small laboratory animals. Experiments will utilize a range of animal models to investigate application of new artificial lungs, surface coatings, and anticoagulants during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and will include a role in planning, execution, analysis, and writing up surgical experiments for publication. Experimental planning includes providing medical expertise in writing animal care and use protocols, developing surgical plans, and scheduling and staffing surgical experiments. Experimental execution includes conducting and performing surgeries, anesthesia, peri- and post-operative animal care, data collection, and data analysis to publication. The successful candidate will also be responsible for assisting in the training of undergraduate and graduate students in all of the listed job responsibilities. This position will be located in Pittsburgh, PA and will participate in collaboratory in vivo surgical research projects between Dr. Keith Cook, Carnegie Mellon University, and Dr. Matthew Bacchetta, Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Core responsibilities will include:
Planning and conducting experiments, especially surgery and after-care.
Collecting and analyzing data from the experiments.
Training and supervising research activities of graduate and undergraduate students
Assist in writing manuscripts.
Maintaining lab compliance with various groups leading all aspects of animal experimentation, including IACUC, OSEH, and the DEA.
Conducting literature review relevant to the experiments. This involves searching for relevant literature, retrieving reprints, reviewing/reading materials, summarizing and archiving.
Medical degree and at least three years of general surgery residency
Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail
Strong communication skills.
Able to work independently and cooperatively with others to execute surgical procedures while following detailed protocols accurately
