Position: Postdoctoral Scholars
The School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, Beckman Laser Institute, located at the University of California, Irvine, is anticipating openings for Postdoctoral Scholars to work with:
Periodically seeks applicants with an expertise for the design and construction of novel new laser-based optical microscopes. Applicants should have proven experience in the application of these new technologies, which are focused around photonics and laser interactions in a focused microscope spot. Candidate must be able to provide physics and optics expertise and at the same time, work specifically to integrate various new optical technologies into current systems. Experience in molecular biology and cell culture is also desirable.
Dr. Zhongping Chen
Is seeking applicants for a position in the area of Biomedical Optics at the Beckman Laser Institute and collaborates with the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, University of California, Irvine. Research areas that are of particular interests include the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and the integration of the advance in microfabrication technology with OCT for functional imaging of tissue structure and physiology
Anthony Durkin, Ph.D
Is seeking applicants with an interest in translational optical imaging related to 2 year NIH funded grant. Responsibilities include collection and analysis of Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging data from in both preclinical and clinical settings as well as instrument design and assembly. Experience in biophotonics and tissue optics is required. Experience with LabView and MATLAB programming is desirable. In addition, candidate should have experience assembling instrumentation. Professional communication skills, both written and oral, are a must, as is a willingness to help manage projects. Candidates for post-doctoral employment must have a Ph.D. Candidates must have the ability to work in an interdisciplinary setting. Applicants should send a CV and the names of three references to
or to Dr. Anthony Durkin, Beckman Laser Institute, University of California, Irvine, 1002 Health Sciences Road, Irvine, CA 92697. All appointments are for one year with the potential for extension dependent upon performance and funding.
J. Stuart Nelson
, M.D., Ph.D.
Is seeking applicants with an interest in using and developing remote optical and thermal sensing techniques to study the effects of laser interaction with biological tissues in general and human skin in particular. Such techniques are based on pulsed photothermal radiometry, infrared tomography and optical coherence tomography. Experience in applied laser biology is desirable.
Is recruiting for a training fellowship in Biomedical Optics Medical Device Development for Cancer Detection. Responsibilities include developing non-invasive optical devices for research and clinical studies in breast cancer. We seek individuals with expertise in optical technologies using semiconductor lasers, optical fibers, computers, and solid-state detectors. Knowledge of electronics, rf techniques, and software control of instrumentation is desirable. Candidates for this position should hold a Ph.D. and should have less than five years of postdoctoral training. They should possess the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team setting.
Brian J.F. Wong
, MD, PhD:
Is seeking applicants for post-doctoral fellow positions at the Beckman Laser Institute. Applicants with a broad background are encouraged to apply, but consideration is given to those with an extensive background in optics or medical device design. Dr. Wong's work is focused in three areas: 1) development of optical imaging technology, 2) characterization of thermoviscoelasticity and shape change in living tissues, and 3) development of novel light activated/modulated therapeutic regimens.
Candidates should have a PhD in engineering (ideally electrical or optical) for the post-doctoral fellow position. Communication and writing skills are paramount. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree. They should possess the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team setting, and familiarity with biomedical optics concepts is desired.
Salary level is negotiable, and will depend upon the candidate's experience. All appointments are for one year with potential for extension dependent upon performance and funding.
