We are recruiting a MS or a PhD student who have some experience in optical imaging (hardware) and/or Fourier optics. The graduate researcher will be appointed as a research assistant and participate in an NIH-funded project to develop a 3-D imaging flow cytometer. Please see below for a short description of the project.

"This project aims to develop 3-D imaging flow cytometry platforms for fluorescent or absorbing (stained) cells at high resolution and high throughput in a flow configuration. The developed systems will be built upon two novel snapshot 3-D techniques developed by the PI in combination with most rigorous 3-D optical imaging theories and cutting-edge component technologies. The proposed methods have the potential to fundamentally change the ways that biological specimens are examined by allowing 3-D structural and functional imaging of suspending cells at a scale that used to be available only in flow cytometry or 2-D imaging."

All prospective candidates should send a brief CV or resume to Dr. Sung (
