Postdoctoral research opportunities are available in the area of biomedical optics at the Massachusetts General Hospital in the Wellman Center for Photomedicine. Harvard Medical School appointments will be at the rank of postdoctoral fellow. MGH’s role as a leading teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School and close ties to Harvard University and MIT provide an outstanding environment for the development of cutting edge technologies and their application in basic and clinical research. Candidates with strong backgrounds in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, biophotonics, optical telecommunications, physics and other relevant disciplines are highly encouraged to apply.
Candidates with strong backgrounds in physics and engineering are sought to join leading efforts in the development and clinical application of new optical diagnostic techniques such as next-generation photoacoustic imaging, optical coherence tomography, NIR and Raman spectroscopy, laser speckle analysis, endoscopic confocal microscopy, multimodality imaging, ultraminiature endoscopy, and image-guided therapy. Clinical application areas include minimally invasive cancer diagnosis in the gastrointestinal and pulmonary tracts and the diagnosis of diseases of the cardiovascular system. Representative recent publications from our lab include: Nature 2006;443(7113):765, Nature Medicine 2006;12(12):1429-1433, Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 2008; 68: 745-53, JACC Cardiovascular Imaging 2008;1:752-61, Nature Medicine 2009;15:1219-23, Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 2010;71: 346-53.
A PhD (or equivalent) in Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering or a related field is required. Demonstrated excellence in one or more of the following areas is required: optical imaging systems, optical design, optical system fabrication, fiber optic systems and components, broadband light source development, photoacoustics, spectroscopy, ultrasound imaging technology development, image processing and programming in Visual C++, clinical studies with novel devices. Creativity is highly desirable.
Positions are available in the laboratories of Wellman Center Faculty: Dr. Gary Tearney and Dr. Brett Bouma.
Interested candidates should send their CV accompanied by a cover letter describing training and research experience. Address correspondence to Drs. Bouma, and Tearney and send by email to: Valerie Madden at firstname.lastname@example.org
