Ph.D graduate student for
• Optical super resolution nanoscopy,
Highly motivated applicants with strong experimental background in optics
and bioimagings or micro/nanofluidics are invited to apply for Ph.D student
position for experimental research in Biomedical Engineering. We have
developed a large multifunctional far-field optical nanoscopic system using
two tunable femto lasers for the super resolution imaging,
nanophotolithography and measurement. The system will be explored in
multidisciplinary research in biochip and Lab-on-a-Chip devices, cellular
bioimaging of living cells with super-resolution to develop new technique
for biomedical research, as well as studying the fundamentals of transport
phenomena in micro/nanofluidics for biofluid near endothelial surface layer
and cancer mechanobiology. Ideally, the applicant should have a master
degree and experience in one or several of the following fields: nonlinear
optics and femto laser, super-resolution microscopy, confocal microscopy,
bioimaging, ultrafast fluorescence dynamics and fluorescence spectroscopy
The Nanofluidics and Microfluidics Lab at The University of South Carolina
is dedicated to experimental science over a broad range of disciplines.
Current research is carried out in science and engineering, with an emphasis
on interdisciplinary work and the development of new experimental tools.
The position needs to be filled as soon as possible. To apply, please email
your resume to: [email protected] Dr. Guiren Wang, Associate Professor,
Biomedical Engineering Program & Department of Mechanical Engineering,
University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC 29208, USA; Tel: (803) 312-1981.
We also welcome visiting students and scholars and the research areas are：
micro/nanofluidics, lab-on-a-chip, far field optical nanoscopy, super-
resolution imaging, cancer detection, fluorescence spectroscopy,
nanophotolithography, fluid dynamics (interfacial flows, e.g. measurement of
slip flow using novel nanoscopic velocimeter developed in our group
recently), turbulence (also including microelectrokinetic turbulence
discovered recently in his group) and mixing.
