Postdoctoral Research Position Opening in Intravascular Imaging at University of California, Davis
Description: A postdoctoral research position is open for applicants with experimental research experience in biomedical optics. The successful candidate will work in a highly collaborative research environment focused on the development of optical technology for cardiovascular diagnostics. The position will involve a collaborative project between Biophotonics Laboratory (https://marculab.bme.ucdavis.edu/) at the University of California Davis (Department of Biomedical Engineering) and the Center for Biomedical OCT Research and Translation, Massachusetts General Hospital (https://octresearch.org/). We are looking for highly motivated individuals with interest in research and applications of optical spectroscopy and imaging to support the development and clinical validation of hybrid optical imaging techniques for interventional cardiology.
- Contribute to the development of multimodal fluorescence lifetime imaging and polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography instrumentation including intravascular catheters and endoscopes
- Develop software and methods for instrument control and data acquisition
- Develop software and methods for data analysis and visualization
- Work in collaboration with the clinical departments including cardiology within the UC Davis School of Medicine as well as academic partners
- Provide support for regulatory activities related to clinical translation by generating documentation and test data
- The initial appointment is for two years with the potential for extension depending upon performance
- The successful candidates will work on National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded multidisciplinary projects focused on research, development and clinical translation of optical techniques for in-vivo diagnosis of human diseases
Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and strong background in optical technologies using lasers, optical coherence tomography (OCT), spectroscopic instruments, optical fibers, solid state detectors, endoscopy, and micro-optics as well as experience related to processing of OCT imaging data. Proficiency in coding using MATLAB/LabView is needed. Prior experience with regulatory compliance is highly valued.
Application: Interested applicants should submit via e-mail a complete curriculum vitae, the contact information for three references, a short statement of research interest, and a copy of one or two publication from previous research to: Prof. Laura Marcu, UC Davis, e-mail: email@example.com and Prof. Brett Bouma, MGH, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, (cc: Dr. Julien Bec, email@example.com)
