    Two postdoctoral positions and one PhD position are available in OPIRA lab in the Biomedical Engineering Department, the University of Illinois at Chicago ( UIC ).

    1. The first postdoctoral fellow will contribute to the design, development, and optimization of a photoacoustic tomography system for infant brain imaging. Other responsibilities include conducting phantom and animal imaging experiments, data analysis. More details about the projects will be discussed during the interview. This project is hosted by the Biomedical Engineering Department at UIC , collaborating with UIC Medical School, Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan and Harvard Medical School. Requirements include: (

    1. Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, or Biomedical Physics;
    2. Strong background in design and development of imaging system instrumentation;
    3. Strong Matlab (required) and Labview programming;
    4. Ability to work independently and in a multi-disciplinary team environment;
    5. Experience with optical system design, machine learning, and GPU programming are plus. The successful candidate will be expected to publish significant research findings and must have excellent verbal and written English communication skills.

    2. The second postdoctoral fellow will contribute to the development of machine learning-based algorithms for image analysis of optical coherence tomography ( OCT ) images of melanoma skin. More details about the projects will be discussed during the interview. This project is hosted by Biomedical Engineering and Bioinformatics Departments at UIC , collaborating with UIC Medical School, and Michelson Diagnostics Co.

    Requirements include: (a) a PhD in Computer science, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Biomedical Physics; (b) must have experience with machine learning algorithm development; © strong Python (required), C/C++, and Matlab programming; (d) ability to work independently and in a multi-disciplinary team environment; (e) experience with optical imaging instruments is a plus. The successful candidate will be expected to publish significant research findings and must have excellent verbal and written English communication skills.

    3. One graduate research assistant position is available in OPIRA laboratory at the Biomedical Engineering Department of the University of Illinois in Chicago. The candidate will contribute to the design and implementation of a photoacoustic imaging system for small and large animal brain imaging. Applicants should hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Optics, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Imaging, or a related field.

    The candidates are invited to send their detailed CV and contact information of three references to avanaki@uic.edu.
