There are several research positions for postdocs and research engineers (and graduate students). We focus on noninvasive, quantitative functional, and molecular optical imaging techniques for neuro-monitoring, cancer imaging, and therapy monitoring, as well as for monitoring of engineered 3D tissue constructs for regenerative medicine, drug delivery, and neural systems in preclinical and clinical settings. The position offers a stimulating work environment that integrates 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 close to the common infrastructure and collaborative institutes, including Medical and Research Centers on the Stony Brook campus and nearby New York City.
