Visiting Research Scholar Opportunities

at Duke Photoacoustic Imaging Lab

Welcome to Photoacoustic Imaging Lab (PI-Lab) at Biomedical Engineering Department of Duke University. Our mission at PI-Lab is to develop state-of-the-art photoacoustic tomography (PAT) technologies and translate PAT advances into diagnostic and therapeutic applications, especially in functional brain imaging and cancer theranostics. At PI-Lab, we are committed to develop break-through PAT technologies, with novel and advanced imaging performance in terms of spatial resolutions, imaging speed, penetration depth, detection sensitivity, and functionality.

We are currently seeking one motivated self-financed visiting research scholar to join PI-Lab. The visiting scholar will be engaged with one or more aspects of PAT technology innovations at PI-Lab, including efficient light illumination, high-sensitivity ultrasonic detection, super-resolution PAT, high-speed imaging acquisition, novel PA genetic contrast, and precise image reconstruction. On top of the technological advancements, the visiting scholar is also expected to engage the broad life science and medical communities with matching PAT systems for research and clinical needs, especially for studying tumor angiogenesis, cancer hypoxia, and brain disorders. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research in imaging and its biomedical applications, we will look for applicants with backgrounds in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.


Please visit our Lab Website for more information at https://photoacoustics.pratt.duke.edu/. Candidates can contact Dr. Yao (junjie.yao@duke.edu) for more information. The required documents include CV, two best papers, and the contact information of three referees.
