With the collaborative efforts by Wright State University, SUNY-Buffalo, University of Cincinnati and Ohio State University, we focus on noninvasive optical imaging of cancer imaging at preclinical and clinical settings. We are looking for candidates (paid full-time/part-time) to take an active part in developing optical imaging techniques for cancer imaging (e.g. ovarian cancer). 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 at the common infrastructure and collaborative institutes including Medical and Research Centers in Wright State University, Ohio State University and University of Cincinnati.
