Research Associate Theoretical Bio-Magnetism

The BioFrontiers Center at UCCS is an interdisciplinary research initiative involving physics, biology, and other science engineering disciplines.
This position will involve theoretical research on magnetic nanoparticles and their biological and biomedical applications. The successful applicant will do theoretical calculations and develop and run computer simulations to answer important questions. Some of the existing projects in the center include:
- Simulating dynamics, chaining and clumping of magnetic nanoparticles in a liquid
- Calculating specific absorption rate in magnetic hyperthermia
- Modeling magnetic nanoparticles in a field gradient, being pushed through mucus

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.
