Postdoctoral position in Bio-Optics is available in Modern Optical Instrumentation and Bio-imaging Laboratory of Prof. Tomasz Tkaczyk in the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University. Research group of Prof. Tkaczyk develop modern optical instruments for biological and biomedical applications. The group merges and develops new technologies in optics, opto-mechanics, electronics, software and bio-chemical materials to solve problems of medical diagnosis and detection for both clinical and remote environments.
Ideal candidate should be interested in work in the field of applied optics. Research topics of the lab offer wide range of scientific challenges contained within the process of design, fabrication and testing of wide range of advanced optical systems. The successful candidate will work on optical design and building instruments to combine high performance imaging with bio-chemical contrast agents and to deliver information about the early stage of disease, organs/tissue morphology and/or cell level physiology. To accommodate such a wide range of targets Prof. Tkaczyk†s laboratory intensively work on development of new imaging snapshot techniques (imaging spectrometers, spectro-polarimeters etc), miniature high resolution endoscopic objectives and state of the art array microscopes. The laboratory has also a wide experience in development of specialized systems for clinical and point-of-care (POC) applications. Developed instruments are clinically tested at Texas Medical Center and at various research laboratories around the country.
Responsibilities of the postdoctoral fellow will include:
- Active engagement in the research on development of optical instrumentation
- Publication of research papers
- Assistance with research grant proposals
- Active search for new research topics
- Assistance in advising student members of the group
