About the Opportunity

The postdoc position lasts one year, with an option to renew for additional years subject to satisfactory performance and successful fundraising of sponsored research. A postdoctoral research associate will assist the PI with laboratory duties to provide apprenticeship experience for candidate's career building.

The primary responsibility will be leading research projects and writing under the supervision of the PI, including proposal writing and publishing research publications in top venues of computer security, regulatory affairs, medical device design standards, or medical device design.

The position will involve the mentoring of undergraduate and graduate research students including introducing them to the research environment, process, and accessibility to resources.

Project management will also be a key part to manage research activities including tracking and meeting deadlines and initiating needed activities to stay on track with acquiring and maintaining lab and research resources such as purchasing research capital equipment and supplies.

The postdoc is expected to foster an inclusive lab culture and environment to improve interactions among team members, promoting shared knowledge, and also keeping team motivated and interested in achieving common goals. The postdoc will organize (by delegation or direct action) periodic social events/breaks, annual retreats, weekly research paper reading groups.
