Research Opportunities:  Postdoctoral Fellow Opening
Use your science, engineering and/or computational skills to explore and develop new technologies for medical imaging systems using advanced concepts in optics. If successful, these innovations would substantially impact the characterization and management of patients with cancer, heart disease, and neurological disorders.
The Stanford Molecular Imaging Instrumentation Lab ( explores novel instrumentation and algorithms to create advanced molecular imaging systems to characterize, visualize, and quantify the molecular and cellular pathways of disease in living subjects.
The project is funded by an NIH R01 grant and the postdoctoral fellow will be directly working with Professor Craig Levin and academic and national lab collaborators on developing novel photon detectors for time-of-flight positron emission tomography applications.
