Two postdoctoral (research associate) positions are immediately
available in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the
University of Virginia to study the mechanics of leukocyte adhesion

The first position studies cytokine regulation of leukocyte integrin
function and adhesion strength, biophysics of selectin binding, and
targeted intravascular drug delivery using shear flow assays. This
research is to be done in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Lawrence.

The second position studies the kinetics and mechanics of
selectin-ligand interactions. Individual selectin-ligand bonds will be
probed using the laser trap transducer to make mechanical measurements
on single molecules.  This research is to be done in the laboratory of
Dr. William H. Guilford.
