Postdoctoral Opening at Biophotonics Laboratory at Yale University
There is an immediate opening at Yale University for a postdoctoral associate to work on a newly-funded research project entitled “Massively parallel interferometric confocal microscopy using degenerate lasers.” The postdoctoral associate will be supervised by Michael A. Choma, MD, PhD (Yale Diagnostic Radiology) in collaboration with Hui Cao, PhD (Yale Applied Physics). The postdoctoral associate will work in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment to develop next-generation laser technologies to enable new kinds of biomedical optical imaging systems.
We are particularly interested in candidates who have experience in designing and building solid-state lasers, but candidates with excellent skills in designing and building optical systems also may be a good fit. A PhD or equivalent degree is required. Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Biomedical Engineering, or similar background is expected. Interested candidates should send a brief letter explaining their interest in the position and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The CV should include 3 references.
Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and members of minority groups.
