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.
Qualifications: The qualified candidates should be highly motivated and enthusiastic, with hardware background in optical imaging, biophotonics, ultrasound and photoacoustics. Strong hardware background in one of the following fields is needed: Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Optical Engineering or related fields. At least one of the skills below is preferred.
Experience in (tissue) optics, biomedical optics.
Experience in functional near infrared spectroscopy, diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, diffuse correlation spectroscopy, speckle imaging, diffuse optical tomography, endoscopy, microscopy.
Experience with FPGA, correlator board, photon counter and timer board.
Experience with NI LabView, hardware/instrumentation development, hardware control and signal acquisition using for example NI DAQ card.
Strong programming skills with Matlab, signal/image processing.
