Position: A postdoctoral position is available in the Cherry laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UC Davis (http://bme.ucdavis.edu/cherrylab/). We are looking for highly motivated individuals with an interest in nuclear imaging and radiotherapy (radionuclide therapy in particular). Applicants should have a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering, medical imaging, or image/signal processing. Expertise in nuclear imaging, image reconstruction, Monte Carlo simulation, and high proficiency in computer programming is preferred. The successful applicant will work with the Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Radiology, and the School of Veterinary Medicine to develop image-based dosimetry for internal radiation therapy. Specifically, the project aims at developing novel methods to improve the treatment of liver cancer through radioembolization, a procedure performed in the division of Interventional Radiology. Excellent communication skills to interact with physicians at the UC Davis Medical Center are required.
University of California, Davis: The University is ranked 6th among U.S. public universities and the Department of Biomedical Engineering is ranked 14th in the nation in research expenditures by the NSF. Through close collaboration between the School of Veterinary Medicine (ranked 1st worldwide), the School of Medicine, and the College of Engineering, UC Davis provides unique opportunities for multidisciplinary and translational research. UC Davis is located in Northern California, within easy reach of Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Yosemite and the Northern California coast.
Application: Qualified candidates can apply by sending their CV, the names of two references, and a short statement of research interests to Dr. Emilie Roncali (firstname.lastname@example.org).
