The Center for Precision Imaging at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School has openings for highly qualified individuals at the post-doctoral level to work in the PET molecular imaging space. Our Center is at the forefront of personalized medicine and we are working to pioneer novel methods and agents with the potential to individualize treatment. We have a long-standing interest in developing novel targeted PET probes, and a robust history of clinical translation. In addition to generating novel probes, we are examining the role of imaging in characterizing cell biology, with a specific focus on cancer. Our group has led some of the first efforts to diagnose therapeutic resistance through feedback loop signaling, monitor and predict the immune response in cancer following immunotherapy and utilize targeted imaging to determine effective therapy dosing, among others. We are seeking candidates who are creative, motivated and hard-working to help continue our progress in these areas.

The successful applicant should have a strong educational background in imaging acquisition, radiochemistry and/or imaging analysis. Prior experience in cancer biology, molecular biology, and animal models of disease preferred. The minimum requirement is a PhD or MD. The selected candidate should have a proven track record of continued achievement, and proficiency in written/spoken English is preferred.

Optical Engineering Post-Doctoral Fellowship - Job Number: 3050286

Optical Engineering
Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity at
Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital

The Center for Precision Imaging (CPI) at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School has an opening for a highly qualified post-doctoral fellow to work on optical engineering/imaging projects. CPI has a long-standing interest in developing optical imaging devices for preclinical and clinical applications using fluorescence to highlight pathology. We have an ongoing collaborative effort with the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health to combine optical fluorescence imaging with navigation technologies for improved detection, and navigation during minimally invasive procedures and in intra-operative guidance for tumor resection. The applicant will work as a part of a team with physicians who are molecular imaging and interventional oncology experts to translate the technologies. Primary areas of interest include multi-spectral fluorescent imaging, diffuse optical tomography, multi-targeted fluorescence labeling, fusion of information from multiple modalities, such as OCT and MR- or CT-based navigation systems.

Qualifications

The successful applicant should have an educational background in applied optics or bioengineering, with hands-on experience in designing and optimizing imaging systems. The minimum requirement is a PhD. Computer programming skills are a must (C++, Qt, or Matlab). The candidate is also expected to have basic knowledge of signal processing theory with applications in image processing and analysis. The selected candidate should be self-motivated, and have a strong interest in publishing papers.
