One NIH-supported postdoctoral position is available in the area of ultrasound imaging and therapy at UC Davis, particularly focused on MR-guided focused ultrasound therapy. Our activities and publications can be found at ferraralab.bme.ucdavis.edu (many publications are available with a password of “guest”). Our laboratory (http://ferraralab.bme.ucdavis.edu/) combines engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists to develop treatments for cancer and cardiovascular disease. We have assembled a full complement of ultrasonic and acoustic equipment, MR-guided focused ultrasound, as well as optical imaging and nuclear imaging techniques. Students and post-doctoral fellows from our laboratory have been widely recruited for academic and industrial positions.
