Nobel Laureate Roger Tsien Dies, Age 64

“As much as we honor Roger’s enduring contributions to science, we
remember and celebrate too the man. He was invariably kind, gracious and
humble, generous with his time and unmatched intellect. Roger was an
extraordinary man: kind, generous, gracious, and always the consummate
scientist pushing the limits of his work to expand the possibilities of
science. He was a rare talent we cannot replace and will be greatly
missed and never forgotten.”

– Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla and Vice Chancellor David A. Brenner

Postdoctoral Position Available Immediately

A postdoctoral position is available to study contrast agent development for in vivo applications of molecular imaging. Our laboratory uses imaging data to study a variety of molecular mechanisms related to cancer and heart disease ( The primary goal of this postdoctoral fellowship is to create novel chemical probes useful in therapeutic drug monitoring. These probes will be used in tandem with wearable devices for real-time patient monitoring via imaging data. Side projects will be encouraged including those that use imaging to enhance early cancer detection and drug delivery.
Interested applicants must have a PhD organic chemistry, materials chemistry, medicinal chemistry or a closely related field. Preference will be given to applicants with an outstanding publication record and expertise in bioconjugation, chemical sensing, host/guest interactions, and materials science. Applicants should be highly motivated, creative, and independent and be interested in a multi-disciplinary approach involving chemistry, engineering, optics, and clinical translation. The work will be conducted in beautiful La Jolla, California with a fantastic climate and excellent quality of life.
Please submit a cover letter with research interests, curriculum vitae, and two letters of recommendation to Dr. Jesse Jokerst at
