Essential Job Duties
Post doctoral position in biomedical ultrasound, in the context of an NIH funded project on breast cancer assessment. This is a collaboration between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University.
In collaboration with leading experts in the field, you will be at the forefront of developing highly novel methods for the real time quantitative assessment of canner related angiogenesis. You will develop a new specific ultrasound imaging technique to improve ability to discriminate benign findings from malignant lesions, and make a clinical impact on a notable percentage of the at-risk population.
Duties and Responsibilities
• Investigate and innovate ultrasound imaging techniques using microbubbles and ultrasound multiple scattering as a source of contrast, to characterize and quantify the micro-architecture of cancer related angiogenesis. • Collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of clinicians, engineers, and biologists to develop state-of-the-art technological solutions. • Conduct experimental evaluations, data analysis, and algorithm development to ensure the reliability and effectiveness of the proposed methods, in phantoms, in rodents and in a clinical study on patients with breast cancer. • Publish research findings in high-impact journals and present at conferences to contribute to the scientific community’s knowledge.
