We develop new imaging methods, computational models and visualization tools to ‘make visible’ critical aspects of cancer, stroke and neurobiology.

We characterize the disease 'microenvironment’ by developing novel imaging approaches and using these imaging data in computational applications that facilitate development of new clinical biomarkers and tools that enable a deeper understanding of disease progression, and response to therapy. For example, in cancer we have developed new imaging methods for characterizing changes in the tumor microenvironment and the pathways involved in metastasis.  Although originally focused on cancer, innovations from our lab are now being adopted to answer questions in the neurosciences and diseases such as stroke. Our research broadly encompasses the following areas:

1. functional and molecular imaging

2. CLINICAL BIOMARKER DEVELOPMENT

3. IMAGE-BASED SYSTEMS BIOLOGY

4. VISUALIZATION AND COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS

Open Positions


Postdoctoral Fellows

Dr. Arvind Pathak’s Functional Imaging and Visualization Laboratory in the Department of Radiology of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine seeks outstanding candidates for a postdoctoral fellowship in multiscale imaging (MRI/CT/optical) of cancer. Outstanding graduate students nearing degree completion or junior postdoctoral fellows are invited to apply. Consideration of candidates will begin immediately.

Qualifications

  • PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Biophysics, or a related field.
  • Experience with in vivo MRI.
  • Image or signal processing experience.
  • MATLAB or equivalent programming experience.

Application Packet MUST include the following:

  1. One page statement describing applicant’s research interests and why they wish to join the Pathak Lab.
  2. Curriculum vitae.
  3. Three letters of recommendation.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Application Process

Applications should be emailed to Dr. Arvind Pathak at pathak AT mri.jhu.edu

The Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.


Undergraduate Students

Our lab is focused on developing new imaging methods and visualization tools to better understand diseases such as cancer and stroke as well as how the brain functions. Most projects in the lab cover the gamut from cell biology to quantitative image analysis. We are seeking highly motivated and dedicated undergraduates with a keen interest in biomedical imaging. This research may be undertaken for credit. If you are interested, please email Dr. Pathak (pathak AT mri.jhu.edu) and attach your latest resume and a one page statement describing why you would like to join the Pathak Lab.

Qualifications:

  • Background in biomedical engineering/electrical engineering/biophysics/physics or related discipline.
  • Exceptional students from other backgrounds (e.g. neuroscience, physiology etc.) will be considered.
  • Programming experience (e.g. MATLAB) or image processing experience is a plus.
  • Long-term (i.e. one year or more) commitment to the lab is expected.
