Graduate Studies in Medical Biophysics
Seeking candidate to become part of a team of students and scientists investigating the use of 3D photoacoustic imaging for biomedical applications.
Seeking candidate to become part of a team of students and scientists investigating the use of 3D photoacoustic imaging and nanotechnology/nanodevices for biomedical applications.
To become a graduate student (MSc or PhD) in our laboratory, you must meet the requirements of the graduate program at the University of Western Ontario and the Department of Medical Biophysics in the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry (www.uwo.ca/biophysics). However, please apply through www.lawsonimaging.ca to determine if you have the skills we are looking for.
Successful applicants who join our group will receive the following benefits:
- Opportunity to access state-of-the-art optical equipment such as diode lasers, ps and ns pulsed lasers, optical detectors, ultrasound detectors, high speed data acquisition systems, time-gated camera systems, a storehouse of optical components, optomechanics, optical tables, data acquisition hardware, Labview, Matlab, access to latest hybrid imaging equipment (such as PET/CT, PET/MRI) for validation purposes, and access to the Nanofab facilities at UWO.
- Since we are located in a hospital environment, an opportunity to interact with medical doctors to help us guide the development of useful devices.
- Opportunity to travel to at least one international meeting per year.
- Opportunity to participate in one of Canada's largest and most vibrant graduate programs in Medical Biophysics.
Only candidates with the following skills will be considered:
- Strong background in engineering or physics, with experience in optics.
- Good knowledge of one or more of Matlab, Labview, C, C++, or similar.
- An aptitude for bench work.
- Good writing skills and a desire to publish often.
- Ability to meet deliverables on time
