Openings in the BCDL

We are always looking to work with self-motivated students who are interested in our research. Our inter-disciplinary work provides research opportunities in: image-guided interventions, medical devices, applied electromagnetics, antennas, computational modeling, bioheat transfer, and medical instrumentation.

Graduate students interested in pursuing research with the lab are encouraged to contact Punit Prakash (prakashp@ksu.edu). Please include a brief description of why you are interested in the research, previous research experience, and attach a copy of your CV. 

Find us at the following conferences

 11th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), Paris, France, March 19-24, 2017

SPIE Photonics West BIOS, San Francisco, CA, January 29-30, 2017

World Conference on Interventional Oncology, Boston, MA, June 9-12, 2016

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference, Orlando, FL, August 16-20, 2016.
