Post-doctoral Scholar/Assistant Project Scientist (In vivo Multiphoton Microscopy)

Mihaela Balu, Irvine, CA, United States
Employer Description

Balu Lab - Nonlinear Optical Microscopy (NLOM)

Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic

The NLOM Lab at the Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic at UC Irvine develops and uses modern biophotonics technologies such as nonlinear optical microscopy for basic research, pre-clinical and clinical applications. One of our major goals related to clinical applications is to use this technology as a non-invasive imaging tool to visualize and understand the microscopic and molecular processes that underlie skin biology. We collaborate closely with the Dermatology Department at UCI to overcome the challenging task related to the clinical translation of multiphoton microscopy. Our Lab is an imaging shared resource for the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Skin Biology Research Center at UCI.

Job Description

The Nonlinear Optical Microscopy (NLOM) Lab (https://sites.uci.edu/nlom/) at the Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic at UC Irvine is seeking a post-doctoral scholar or an assistant project scientist (depending on experience and research interest of the candidate) to work on an exciting project to develop and apply instrumentation based on multiphoton microscopy to clinical skin imaging for applications related to early cancer detection and monitoring the effects of therapies. We are looking for highly motivated individuals with interest in research and applications of optical imaging technologies to address clinical needs.  The position is for two years with the possibility of renewal based on performance. For the postdoctoral position, at the end of the postdoctoral training, the candidate may be encouraged to continue as a staff scientist based on performance and funding availability. The successful candidate will work on NIH-funded multidisciplinary projects in collaboration with industry and clinical collaborators to advance the development of multiphoton microscopy for clinical applications. Requirements: PhD preferably in Physics, Optics, Chemistry or related Engineering field. Preferred qualifications: experience with nonlinear optical microscopy and/or other optical imaging techniques, proficiency in microscopy image processing and analysis (Matlab, Python, ImageJ, etc). Candidates for the Assistant Project Scientist position will preferably have 3+ years of academic or industry relevant experience following the doctoral degree.

UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic (http://www.bli.uci.edu/) is internationally-recognized for research, innovation, and translational medicine. It is one of five national Beckman Institutes supported by the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation with others at: California Institute of Technology, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Stanford University, and City of Hope Hospital and Medical Center.  Each Beckman Institute is dedicated to cutting-edge research at the interface between disciplines. The UCI location is a unique translational technology center, moving new technologies rapidly from the laboratory benchtop to the patient bedside.

Interested applicants should submit via e-mail a complete CV, a short statement of research interests and the contact information for three references to Mihaela Balu, PhD (mbalu@uci.edu), the PI of the NLOM Lab at the Beckman Laser Institute at UC Irvine.
