Positions Available

Our research is interdisciplinary and include semiconductor device physics, optics, micro- and nano-fabrication, chemistry and applications in tissue imaging, biomedical diagnostics, cancer studies and neurobiology. Our students will be working within these disciplines as part of project teams conducting experiments in topics related to in vitro biomedical diagnostics and in vivo optical imaging in rodents and in humans. For more information about research opportunities in our group please contact Dr. Ofer Levi.

Masters and PhD Candidates

Interested students should apply to the graduate program at The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (BME)The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering or related programs in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto. Applications open in November and are due in early January for starting in the following fall.

In addition, send Dr. Levi an e-mail indicating your interest and a copy of your CV and transcripts. If you have any of the following skills or experience, please mention them in your e-mail:

  • Undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in optics, photonics, electromagnetics and applied physics
  • Research experience as an undergraduate or a Masters student
  • Micro/nano fabrication experience, working in a clean room
  • Optics experience, in research or teaching laboratories
  • Experience with theory and/or modeling and numerical simulation of electromagnetic problems
  • Experience with biomedical imaging/sensing
  • Teaching experience, leadership and teamwork experience.

For those students who have already sent your applications to the University of Toronto: Please send Dr. Levi an e-mail with the information above, so he can look for your application.

Fourth Year Thesis Candidates

Current 2024-2025 Fourth Year Thesis project descriptions will be posted soon!

Interested Third Year Engineering, Engineering Science, and Biology/Physiology students are encouraged to contact Professor Levi directly with an email that contains a summary of their research interests, a copy of their CV, and a copy of their unofficial transcript.

Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunities

Current 2024 Levi Lab Summer Research Project Descriptions

To apply for any of these positions, prospective applicants should directly email Sarvath Sharma at sarvath(dot)sharma(at)mail(dot)utoronto(dot)ca to indicate their interest and/or ask any related questions.

Applications are currently being considered on a rolling basis so prompt submission is recommended.

In your email please include both a current resume/CV and recent unofficial transcript (e.g. printout of complete academic history from Acorn).

Additionally, prospective applicants should also review the information available here to verify that they meet the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department’s specific NSERC USRA application eligibility requirements and related application deadlines.

Post Doctoral Fellows

Our group is seeking highly motivated, dynamic and independent candidates for Post Doctoral research fellowships who can lead experimental research activities in optical in vivo imaging, optical biosensors and imaging systems. Background in experimental photonics, optical semiconductor devices, micro- and nano-fabrication, modeling light propagation in tissues and biomedical imaging is highly desirable.

Contact Dr. levi with an e-mail describing your interests, your past experience, and a copy of your CV.
