A postdoctoral position is available to study ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging with applications in oral health and dentistry. Our laboratory uses imaging data to study a variety of molecular mechanisms related to human health (http://jjokerst.eng.ucsd.edu/). The first goal of this postdoctoral fellowship is to create novel and miniaturized hardware to image the entire human mouth for acoustic imaging. The second goal is to use automated methods (deep learning, machine learning) to interpret the images. Side projects will be encouraged especially those use acoustics to improve human health. Interested applicants must have a PhD in biomedical engineering or a closely related field. Preference will be given to applicants with an outstanding publication record and expertise in transducers, photoacoustic imaging, image processing, Verasonics systems, Visualsonics, systems, and/or dentistry. Applicants should be highly motivated, creative, and independent and be interested in a multi-disciplinary approach involving chemistry, engineering, optics, and clinical imaging. The work will be conducted in beautiful La Jolla, California with a fantastic climate and excellent quality of life.
