Job DescriptionThe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Rochester is undertaking a multi-year expansion of its faculty to support its growing research and educational programs in multiple areas.
The department invites applications from outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral position in the Parametric Imaging Research Laboratory (http://www.hajim.rochester.edu/ece/sites/doyley/index.html) of Professor Marvin Doyley. The postdoctoral associate will be conducting research sponsored by the National Institutes of Health to develop novel imaging techniques to visualize changes in the pancreatic tumor microenvironment. Ideally, candidates should have experience in preclinical imaging, optical imaging, ultrasound imaging, and/or magnetic resonance imaging.
Applicants must hold a doctorate degree in an appropriate field by the time their postdoctoral appointment begins. They must demonstrate an ability to:
