Applications are open for Post-Doctoral Fellowship – Chakraborty in Physics Astronomy Department at the University of New Mexico. The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of New Mexico (UNM) invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position in optical imaging instrument development. The Department of Physics and Astronomy is located within a new (Fall 2019); state-of-the-art research facility, the Physics and Astronomy and Interdisciplinary Science (PAÍS) building.

Job Description

A postdoctoral research fellowship in the area of microscope-development is available in the Chakraborty Lab (chakra.unm.edu) in UNM’s Department of Physics and Astronomy. Owing to its close collaborations with the Health Sciences and Biology department, this position will provide an outstanding environment for developing and translating new medical imaging technologies with applications in basic research. Historically, imaging cellular architecture in tissue required cutting thin slices. Recent development in tissue clearing and multiphoton microscopy has led to increased capability of performing histological investigations in intact tissue.

The fellowship will focus on advancing state-of-the-art in microscope development techniques to solve challenging problems in biomedical imaging. Working closely in a multi-disciplinary environment, the candidate will be responsible for developing new and transformative lightsheet based imaging platforms that have direct impact in health sciences and biomedical imaging in general. The specific aim of the fellowship can be tailored to meet individual goals, which will provide an opportunity to build research, training-grants and publication experience. The initial term of employment is one year, but can be renewed upon satisfactory performance for up to three years.
