Postdoctoral Fellow - Hui lab -Multimodal Imaging and Research
We are looking for a highly motivated and well organized research associate for multimodal imaging and radiation research projects (e.g. total marrow irradiation, image guided targeted therapy) within the Depart of Radiation Oncology (Hui laboratory), Beckman Research Institute, City of Hope. This is a part of the NIH (National Institute of Health) funded research for developing total marrow irradiation program. The successful candidate will participate investigating pre-clinical and clinical multimodal imaging (PET/CT; Optical imaging (confocal and Intravital); MRI image imaging) and general radiation research though various multi-disciplinary and translational approaches in pre-clinical and clinical studies. With strong support from the department chair (Dr. Jeffrey Wong), one of the main goal is to foster translational and correlative studies to bridge basic science and clinical trials.
