Questions & Answers

Q: Are you currently accepting Stanford students?

A: The lab is a great environment for learning about medical physics and cancer imaging. However, space and mentoring constraints limit the number of undergraduate and graduate students that can work in the lab. To inquire about a possible student rotation, please send an email with your CV and transcripts. It helps to specify projects in which you have particular interest. Your application will be evaluated based on the needs of ongoing projects.

Q: I would like to apply for a PhD position at Stanford in your lab

Stanford University does not currently have a graduate program in Medical Physics. Students interested in pursuing a PhD at Stanford must first apply a PhD program in the School of Medicine, School of Engineering, or School of Humanities and Sciences. Once a student is admitted into a PhD program, they usually rotate through 2-3 labs before committing to a specific lab. Individual professors cannot hire PhD students that have not yet been admitted by a Stanford program.

Q: I am looking for a postdoctoral position

A: Please consult the open positions above to see if anything matches your background or interests. We will consider all applications, even those that fall outside published openings. We are constantly looking for promising scientists to join our ranks! Stanford provides also several postdoc training programs relevant to the focus of our lab.

Q: I am interested in a visiting researcher position

A: A Visiting Scholar appointment at Stanford can be arranged, provided that the candidate's background matches ongoing research projects. Please visit the Research Section to see if your background is well aligned with the lab's focus.

Q: Does the lab offers summer internships

A limited number of internship positions are available for high school and undergraduate students each year. For your application to be considered, please apply no later than April 1st.
