A postdoctoral research opportunity in the area of optical tweezers and vibrational spectroscopy 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 Raman spectroscopy, and who possess demonstrable interest in medical technology commercialization. The Ecosystem for Biophotonics Innovation (EBI) eFellows (Entrepreneurial Fellows) will participate in exciting technology maturation and commercialization projects, as well as extensive commercialization and entrepreneurship training, and will receive competitive compensation. The project will involve the development and application of laser tweezers and micro-Raman spectroscopy for analyzing single cells and studying their dynamics.
Qualified applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in engineering, physics, optics, chemistry or a related field. The work will involve design, construction, characterization, and testing of optical tweezers and spectroscopic systems for the detection of Raman signals from cells. Experience and knowledge of as many of the following is desirable: optical tweezers, spatial light modulators, vibrational (Raman) spectroscopy, optical microscopy, optical design, microfluidic fabrication. Interested candidates should send their CV, a cover letter describing training and research experience, a brief essay about their interest in technology commercialization and entrepreneurship, and 3 letters of reference.
