With the collaborative efforts by Wright State University, Ohio State University and University of Cincinnati, we focus on noninvasive optical, ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging of the brain function and cancer at preclinical and clinical settings. We are looking for candidates (full-time/part-time) to take an active part in optical imaging for optical neuroimaging (e.g. autism, traumatic brain injury), and cancer diagnosis (e.g. oral, ovarian, skin cancers). The research 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 at the common infrastructure and collaborative institutes including Medical and Research Centers in Wright State University, Ohio State University and University of Cincinnati.
