The Center for Diabetes Technology (CDT) invites 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 CDT 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 an 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.

This is a restricted position; continuation is dependent on funding and satisfactory performance.

Priority review of applications will begin on October 29, 2021, but the position will remain open until filled.

Postdoctoral employment is temporary and is normally limited to an individual who has been awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate within the previous five years and who will be involved in full-time research or scholarship at the University. Employment as a Postdoctoral Research Associate is viewed as training and is preparatory for a full-time academic or research career, is supervised by a senior scholar, and allows the appointee to publish the results of his/her research or scholarship during the training period.
