Post-doctoral Associate Position in Biophotonics/Biomedical Optical Imaging at Lehigh University
A full-time Postdoctoral Associate position in Biophotonics / Biomedical Optical Imaging is available at Lehigh University starting ASAP. The primary purpose of this position will be for a highly motivated individual to develop advanced optical imaging techniques for novel biomedical applications in vitro and/or in vivo. Compensation is commensurate with experience.
Qualifications: Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Physics, Biomedical Engineering / Bioengineering or related fields. Hands-on experience with optical coherence tomography (OCT), especially phase-sensitive Fourier-domain OCT, is preferred. Good publication record and communication skills. Strong programming skills (Matlab, Labview, C++ and GPU programming) are pluses.
The candidate is expected to work on one of the following research areas and/or develop new research directions:
- Space-division multiplexing OCT
- OCT imaging of brain function
- OCT imaging for developmental biology and tissue engineering applications
- OCT for cancer imaging
Interested candidates should submit a research statement, an updated CV with a list of at least three references, and three representative journal publications by email in PDF format to Dr. Chao Zhou (email@example.com) with “Postdoc Application” in the subject. Interviews will be arranged on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

About Dr. Chao Zhou:
Dr. Chao Zhou obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics in 2007 from the University of Pennsylvania, where he worked with Professor Arjun G. Yodh on the development of diffuse optical spectroscopy and imaging techniques. In August 2007, Dr. Zhou joined Professor James G. Fujimoto’s Laser Medicine and Medical Imaging Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a postdoctoral associate. Since then, he has been working on the development of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Optical Coherence Microscopy (OCM) technologies. Dr. Zhou has published over 51 peer-reviewed journal articles, and is a recipient of numerous awards, including the National Institute of Health Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00). Dr. Zhou joined the faculty at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Bioengineering Program at Lehigh’s P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science in June 2012. Research in Dr. Zhou’s lab is currently support by several grants from NIH, NSF, and the University City Science Center in Philadelphia. For more information, visit http://www.ece.lehigh.edu/~zhou/.
