Research Engineer Position in Optical Imaging
In the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Wright State University, we focus on noninvasive optical imaging of the brain function and cancer at preclinical and clinical settings. We are looking for candidates to take an active part in optical imaging for cancer diagnosis, assessing the brain function as well as neuromodulation techniques to enhance neuronal activity. The position offers a stimulating work environment integrating engineering and physics with medicine, neuroscience and biology. The candidate will have a unique opportunity in both basic lab and translational research by collaborating with scientists and clinicians located in close proximity. The lab is located at the heart of the Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration building, which houses the Wright State University & Premier Health Neuroscience Institute, a University System of Ohio Center of Excellence, where engineers collaborate with medical researchers and clinicians to improve diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders and cancer.
