A postdoctoral research opportunity in the area of novel cytometry methods for single cell analysis is available at the NSF Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology at UC Davis. We seek applications from candidates who are highly qualified in the field of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and Raman spectroscopy, and who possess demonstrable interest in medical technology commercialization. The Ecosystem for Biophotonics Innovation (EBI) “eFellows” will participate in exciting technology maturation and commercialization projects, as well as extensive commercialization and entrepreneurship training, and will receive competitive compensation. The project, which teams UC Davis with industrial partners, will involve the characterization of SERS nanoparticles and their application for use as cellular labels for flow cytometry and cellular imaging.
Qualified applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in engineering, physics, chemistry or a related field. The work will involve design, characterization, and testing of the optical instruments and nanoparticle labels on biological systems. Experience and knowledge of as many of the following is desirable: vibrational (Raman) spectroscopy, optical microscopy, optical design, nanoplasmonics, cancer biology, stem cell biology, microfluidics.
Interested candidates should send their CV accompanied by a cover letter describing training and research experience. Address correspondence to: James Chan, PhD, email@example.com, and Dennis Matthews, PhD, Dennis.Matthews@cbst.ucdavis.edu.
