Job Summary

The Bio-optical Imaging Laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering invites applications for a postdoctoral position, supported by NIH R01s. The Lab develops near-infrared optical technologies for continuous imaging of blood flow, oxygenation and oxygen metabolism in normal and diseased tissues of animals and humans. The goal is to apply noninvasive portable optical devices for diagnosis of various tissue/vascular diseases (e.g., cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease) and instant monitoring and management of therapies (e.g. medication, chemo-radiation, revascularization). Responsibilities consist of design and development of optical spectroscopic and tomographic systems, data analysis, image reconstruction, and in vivo measurements of tissue hemodynamics, and metabolism. This position will also provide a unique opportunity to gain experience in a multidisciplinary research environment. The initial appointment will be for a 12-month period, with possibility of extension based on performance and the availability of funding.

Interested candidates should submit a complete application to include: 1) a one-page statement of research interests (Specific Request 1), 2) curriculum vita, 3) Three references with contact information (Specific Request 2), and up to three representative publications (Specific Request 3).
