The School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, Beckman Laser Institute, located at the University of California, Irvine, is anticipating openings for Project Scientists, Assistant and Associate Project Scientists to work with the following faculty:

Michael Berns, Ph.D., periodically seeks applicants with an expertise for the design and construction of novel new laser-based optical microscopes. Applicants should have proven experience in the application of these new technologies, which are focused around photonics and laser interactions in a focused microscope spot. Candidate must be able to provide physics and optics expertise and at the same time, work specifically to integrate various new optical technologies into current systems. Experience in molecular biology and cell culture is also desirable. Candidates for this position should hold a Ph.D. and should have less than five years of postdoctoral training. They should possess the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team setting.

Zhongping Chen, Ph.D., seeks applicants for a position in the area of Biomedical Optics at the Beckman Laser Institute and to collaborate with the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, University of California, Irvine. Research areas that are of particular interests include the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT), multiphoton endoscopy, intravascular photoacoustic tomography, and other biophotonic imaging technologies.

Bruce Tromberg, Ph.D. seeks lead project manager applicants in Biomedical Optics Medical Device Development for Cancer Detection. Responsibilities include developing non-invasive optical devices for research and clinical studies in breast cancer. We seek individuals with expertise in optical technologies using semiconductor lasers, optical fibers, computers, and solid-state detectors. Knowledge of electronics, RF techniques, and software control of instrumentation is desirable.

Brian Wong, M.D., Ph.D. seeks applicants for a position in the area of Biomedical Optics at the Beckman Laser Institute, University of California, Irvine. Research areas of particular interests include optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other biophotonic imaging technologies.
