Our lab is a very collaborative and cross-specialty group. We are successful because of the diverse scientific and cultural backgrounds of our members and all positions are heavily multidisciplinary, requiring the candidate to collaborate and take on leading roles with a team of chemists, biologists, and clinicians as well as collaborate with remote locations both within other US research institutions as well as internationally.
Over the years, the lab has hosted many visiting scholars—scientists or physicians—with a broad array of skills and specializations, including, neurosurgeons, gastrointestinal surgeons, dermatologists, dentists, chemists, and biologists. A visiting scientist is usually self-funded and has an interest in incorporating photodynamic therapy into their research or is interested in taking photodynamic therapy into the clinic. We are always happy to hear from researchers who are self-supporting and are interested in photodynamic therapy.
Our postdoctoral researchers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including, but not limited to, chemistry, biology, physics, engineering, and imaging, and they are all interested in furthering the treatment of diseases, be it through the development of treatments and diagnostic techniques that can be translated to the clinic or by expanding our knowledge of diseases by more accurately modeling maladies or elucidating the mechanisms of effective treatment. We only have limited funding available, so when new postdoctoral positions are available, they will be posted on this page. However, if you have your own source of funding, please feel free to send us a copy of your resume and cover letter at any time. Tumor Biology and Immuno-oncology Position Biomedical Imaging Position
Our research technicians work in the area of laser/light-activated therapies in the laboratory. They enter the group already equipped with a variety of applicable lab skills, technical knowledge, and a team-oriented focus; all of these traits help immensely, as the position requires learning a large number of biological and optical techniques, participation in group seminars, website maintenance and grant writing. Our research technicians are energetic and enthusiastic about lab work and flexible in working with different investigators on various projects in the lab. We have two levels of research technicians in the lab: I and II.
A level I research technician has some of the following responsibilities: preparing solutions and reagents, cell and tissue culture, data analysis, preparing and performing routine experiments with supervision, maintaining instruments and equipment, ordering supplies, maintaining the lab websites, etc.
A level II research technician has all of the responsibilities of a level I technician, but, among other duties, also trains new lab members, develops and optimizes project protocols, performs literature searches and contributes to the writing of book chapters, develops data analysis tools for image analysis using programming, and takes on some other technical responsibilities.>
