This is an exciting time for the University of Oregon as we realize our dreams for enhancing discovery and innovation activity through the development of the Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact. This page provides information on faculty employment opportunities within the Knight Campus.
Clinical Research Coordinator
The Clinical Research Coordinator in the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance at the University of Oregon requires an individual who is self-motivated and has excellent organizational, research, and communication skills to participate in a variety of new and ongoing research. The Clinical Research Coordinator works closely with Professor / Associate Director Michael Hahn to design and implement lab research and assessment, seek and obtain external support for research activities, and publish results.
Optics Program Director, Knight Campus Graduate Internship Program
The Optics Program Director will have primary responsibilities for: oversight of equipment and facilities used in experiential learning and research, modernization of core curriculum, instruction of 2-3 program-specific courses, and internal stakeholder engagement. Additionally, the Program Director will provide support for industry engagement and student recruitment. The position requires scientific expertise in the area of optical materials and devices.
Postdoctoral Scholar - Benoit Lab
The Postdoctoral Scholar will be responsible for conducting research and technical activities related to sponsored projects in Benoit Lab; will conduct data analysis and collaborate on reporting findings and discoveries in written and verbal form; and will manage, maintain and provide technical expertise for Benoit lab equipment, protocols, and programs.
Postdoctoral Scholar – Hettiarachatchi Lab
The postdoc will be responsible for conducting research and technical activities related to ongoing projects in the Hettiaratchi Lab involving the design, fabrication, and implementation of hydrogel biomaterials for protein delivery. The postdoc will also give poster and oral presentations, write manuscripts, and assist Dr. Hettiaratchi in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students.
Postdoctoral Scholar - Lindberg Lab
The Postdoctoral Scholar will be responsible for conducting research and technical activities related to sponsored projects in Dr. Lindberg's lab; this research project will be focused on advanced bioinks and thermoplastic scaffolds for 3D Bioprinting of hybrid constructs for bone marrow models. Developing physio-mimetic bone marrow tissue models to study disease pathogenesis and stem cell behaviors represents a critical bioengineering stream to prime the development of effective and accessible treatment options for bone marrow failures.
Postdoctoral Scholar - Plesa Lab
The postdoc will be responsible for conducting research and technical activities related to sponsored projects in the Plesa Lab. Research work includes designing and optimizing a new antibody generation method using a large-scale in-vivo protein-protein interaction assay, gene synthesis and in-vivo mutagenesis.
Postdoctoral Scholar - Willett Lab
The postdoct will be responsible for conducting research and technical activities related to sponsored projects in the Willett Lab and on a project under the Regenerative Rehabilitation Moonshot program of the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance.
Postdoctoral Scholar - Open Pool
The postdoc in the Knight Campus will conduct laboratory research, quantitative analysis, prepare manuscripts and grant applications, and present data and findings to internal and external audiences.
ProTem Instructor/Lecturer - Open Pool
Instructors/lecturers in the Knight Campus will develop innovative and multidisciplinary educational materials with the goal of preparing graduate students for entry-level positions in academic, industry, and government labs.
ProTem Research Engineer - Lindberg Lab
The Research Engineer will be responsible for conducting research and technical activities related to sponsored projects in Dr. Lindberg's lab; This research project will be focused on advanced bioinks and thermoplastic scaffolds for 3D Bioprinting of hybrid constructs for bone marrow models.
Research Associate/Staff Scientist - Plesa Lab
The Plesa Lab is seeking an experienced research associate/staff scientist to focus on the development of novel gene synthesis methods for building large gene libraries as well as novel methods for characterizing and engineering proteins at scale.
Research Assistant/Associate - Human Performance Alliance
The Regenerative Rehabilitation Moonshot program of the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance is based in the Knight Campus at the University of Oregon and synergizes regenerative medicine and rehabilitation protocols to restore function to damaged tissues. We believe an integrated interdisciplinary approach can dramatically accelerate healing and optimize functional recovery following a range of tissue damage levels and even help prevent injuries before they happen.
Research Assistant/Associate/Engineer - Open Pool
The Knight Campus is seeking qualified applicants for its open research pool. A successful candidate will have the ability to work effectively with faculty, staff, and students from a variety of diverse backgrounds. We are seeking applicants in scientific disciplines including bioengineering, neuroengineering, engineering, human physiology, applied chemistry, applied physics, and biology or closely related fields.
Research Technician - Gardner Lab
The Gardner Lab focuses on developing new methods to interface with the brain and peripheral nervous system, and on the study of sensory-motor learning in songbirds, with a focus on high-channel count neural recordings in freely moving canaries.
