Deep Tissue Imaging with cumulative coherent-nonlinear scattering: Postdoc Positions Available at the School of Biomedical Engineering, Colorado State University.

We are seeking two postdoctoral applicants to work on a CZI-funded project for ultra deep nonlinear imaging inside of biological tissues. This work builds on a recently demonstrated second harmonic generation (SHG) holographic tomography (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41566-020-0638-5) that will be combined with coherent reflection matrices to enable SHG imaging at unprecedented depths. Postdocs will also be actively involved in the CZI deep tissue imaging team.

Applicant requirements

Application process: Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. in Optics, Physics, Engineering, or related field. Candidates with or motivated to learn the following skills are strongly encouraged to apply:
— Experience or a strong interest in light propagation in highly scattering media, with a particular focus on transmission and reflection matrices
— Experience or a strong interest in construction of multiphoton microscopes, nonlinear optics, and ultrafast lasers
— Experience or a strong interest in imaging deep inside of biological tissues
