Postdoctoral Researcher in Biomedical Optical Instrumentation, Dartmouth College, USA

A position is available for post doctoral research in the area of biomedical optics instrumentation development.

The focus is on spectroscopy of tissue with near-infrared light, inside the MRI.

The application is for video rate spectroscopy development to study physiology and cancer biology in vivo.

The work will be completed both at the Engineeering School as well as at the Advanced Imaging Laboratory at the Radiology department of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

The instrumentation for measurmeents will be developed and integrated with Magnetic Resonance Imaging and NIR tomography software.

Training in 3D visualization and software reconstruction is available. Training in instruction, supervision, team work, grant writing and career planning would be part job.


The applicant should be focused on an academic career in optics or instrumentation, with a understanding of biomedical optics and/or near infrared tomography/spectroscopy.

Solid experimental and hardware development skills in optics is essential. Software experience in MATLAB and Labview would be beneficial, but could be learned.

The job will involve working within a team of people and cooperating to achieve the project goals. Strong capabilities in English writing, reading and oral communication are required.
