Job Summary

The Fabiilli lab, which is part of the Basic Radiological Sciences Division within the Department of Radiology at the University of Michigan, is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow.  The Fabiilli lab develops ultrasound-based, drug delivery strategies.  This open position is supported by an NIH project investigating the delivery of pro-angiogenic growth factors for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. The goal of the research is to understand how spatiotemporal gradients, doses, and sequences of pro-angiogenic growth factors impact blood vessel growth in in vitro and in vivo models. The project utilizes implantable scaffolds where growth factor delivery is non-invasively controlled both spatially and temporally using focused ultrasound.   Non-invasive imaging will be used in conjunction with standard histological techniques to evaluate the growth of the newly formed vessels. Please visit the Fabiilli lab website to learn more about our research.


The postdoctoral fellow will be responsible for planning and executing experiments, managing and mentoring students, preparing manuscripts, contributing to grant proposals, presenting at conferences, and interacting with collaborators.

Required Qualifications*

  • PhD in Biomedical Engineering or related field
  • Demonstrated expertise with at least ONE of the following:
    • Therapeutic ultrasound
    • Biomaterials for therapeutic angiogenesis
  • At least two first-author papers published in peer-reviewed, international journals
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English

Desired Qualifications*

  • Demonstrated experience with mammalian cell culture, preclinical rodent models (i.e., mice), and hydrogel scaffolds
  • Demonstrated experience with rodent surgery
