UCSF Physics Research Laboratory

UCSF Physics Research Laboratory pursues development and application of quantitative imaging techniques using ionizing radiation. The laboratory also trains graduate students and mentors postdoctoral fellows in quantitative biomedical imaging instrumentation and physics. Our resources include radionuclide and x-ray imaging instrumentation laboratory, radiation detection instruments , radiopharmaceutical handling/storage laboratory, dedicated high performance computing servers, and preclinical SPECT/PET/CT/Optical imaging instruments. We also take advantage of state-of-the-art SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and PET/MR scanners that are available at our site for research use.  

We are constantly looking for passionate undergraduate and graduate students, medical students, residents, and fellows, and postdoctoral trainees from UCSF, UCB, or other academic institutions who are interested in pursuing quantitative molecular imaging physics and instrumentation research. The number of openings and start times vary, depending on many factors, by the way.
