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 (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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
