Undergraduate Student Research Positions:
In 2020, eight undergraduate students published their first papers on their research works in the lab. They are the first author of the papers. Undergraduate students also have the opportunities to present their research works at national and international conferences.
Research projects cover a wide range of areas, including
- Biomedical imaging
- Quantitative imaging: image processing & analysis, segmentation, classification, and registration
- Image-guided interventions: image-guided surgery, therapy, biopsy, and drug delivery
- Translational imaging: cellular & molecular imaging, small animal imaging, and clinical imaging
- Multimodality imaging: hyperspectral imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography (CT), and ultrasound imaging
- Virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality for biomedical and clinical applications
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) for biomedical imaging applications
- Cancer research: prostate, head and neck, breast, pancreas, and brain
- Cardiovascular, kidney, placenta, and neurological diseases
Dr. Fei has research labs at both UT Dallas and UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is a Professor of Bioengineering at UT Dallas and a Professor of Radiology at UT Southwestern. Dr. Fei enjoys mentoring undergraduate students for their research projects and career development. His lab includes scientists, research associates, postdoctoral fellows, research assistants, PhD and Master’s students, medical students, and undergraduate research assistants. Undergraduate students have the opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other senior students and staff members on various research projects.
For motivated undergraduate students who plan to pursue academic excellence and professional degrees (e.g., PhD or MD), please send CV and personal statement to Professor Fei (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
PhD Student Positions
The PhD student positions offer great opportunities to work in a high-quality academic environment at the University of Texas at Dallas and UT Southwestern Medical Center. The university campus is located in the beautiful suburban Richardson, Texas, a prime location in the second largest state and the fourth largest metropolitan area in the USA. The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex is one the nation’s largest urban areas, with shopping, entertainment venues, including five major sports teams, and museums and art galleries. DFW is one of the nation’s busiest and fastest growing business regions. More than 20 Fortune 500 companies, such as Texas Instruments and AT&T, headquartered in the DFW area. More than 100 cooperate giants and 600 high-tech, biomedical and start-up companies are based in the Dallas area. Our graduate students are highly recruited by leading national companies and receive prestigious scholarships and advanced research opportunities. The candidate has the opportunity to work in the UT Southwestern Medical Center, one of the premier academic medical schools in the United States, which integrates pioneering biomedical research with exceptional clinical care and education. The UT Southwestern faculty includes many distinguished members, including six who have been awarded Nobel Prizes since 1985. The joint Biomedical Engineering Program offers the unique education and research opportunities for our graduate students.
Successful PhD applicant will be supervised by an internationally recognized leader in biomedical imaging and will collaborate with other faculty members, researchers, clinicians, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students in an outstanding research team. The current research programs are supported by active grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The research labs are located in the new Bioengineering and Science Building (BSB) at UT Dallas and the K Building at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The PhD student will have the opportunity to receive high-quality trainings in research, education, and leadership. PhD thesis research areas cover biomedical imaging, artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality, image processing & analysis, and image-guided interventions. The candidate will receive comprehensive trainings in multimodality imaging, e.g., molecular imaging, optical imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound imaging.
The candidate should have a bachelor or Master’s degree in biomedical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, systems engineering, or other related field. The candidate should have research interest in biomedical imaging, image processing, medical device, computer programming, and the development of engineering tools for medical and healthcare applications.
