Research Associate, Center for Diabetes Technology (UVA)

  • Charlottesville, Virginia, United States
  • Professional Research Staff
  • The University of Virginia
The Center for Diabetes Technology (CDT) at the University of Virginia’s (UVA) School of Medicine seeks applicants for multiple Postdoctoral Research Associates for their research team, focusing on highly complex technology, algorithm development and data management. CDT is a recognized world leader in the technological treatment of diabetes and the hub of an international research network of leading U.S. institutions. We advance the use of technology, including analytics, to allow improved data and operational management, monitoring, and therapies for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

The research center is directed by Boris Kovatchev, PhD, a world-renowned researcher in the field of Diabetes, algorithm development and data science. Dr. Kovatchev is a regular lecturer at Universities and Conferences throughout the US and Europe. He is actively involved with Center projects and with the direction and education of all post-doctoral candidates. With substantial NIH funding, the Center led and successfully completed the three largest randomized Artificial Pancreas (AP) clinical trials in the World to date, including a pivotal trial aiming for regulatory clearance of a new AP System (that included the algorithm program developed at the Center), published on October 16, 2019 in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Successful candidates will be afforded the opportunity to continue their research under the supervision of a Team of accomplished faculty members and physicians. As well, incumbents will be able to conduct independent translational research in biotechnology, biomedical engineering, advanced mathematics, and Data Science that not only will be essential to the programs of CDT faculty members; but will impact future healthcare programs and therapeutics for improved patient care. Incumbents will perform high-profile, NIH-funded, and other sponsored research in interdisciplinary international research setting and be a regular attendee at Diabetes and technology conferences. Successful candidates will conduct supervised and independent research for the Center for Diabetes Technology and expand Center-related research lines in:

• Metabolic and behavioral computer simulation in diabetes, including
• Modelling and simulation of new drug treatment strategies,
• Validation and testing of medical device-based treatments, and
• Simulation-based education/training of patients and care providers. There are no clinical responsibilities associated with this position. However, the successful candidate will have regular access to physicians through the UVA School of Medicine.
• In addition to the above job responsibilities, other duties may be assigned

Physical demands: This is primarily a sedentary job involving extensive use of desktop computers. The job does occasionally require traveling some distance to attend meetings, and programs.

Priority review of applications will begin on November 27, 2022, but the position will remain open until filled. This position will sponsor applicants for work visas. This is a restricted position; continuation is dependent on funding and satisfactory performance. This position is located in Charlottesville, Virginia.
