The Center provides young scientists opportunities to work increasingly independently and gain the confidence and experience necessary to become an independent researcher through the following education and training opportunities.
Undergraduate, Graduate and Postdoctoral Training
The Center provides research opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to gain experiences and skills in state-of-the-art imaging technologies. Besides the research experience, these trainees have access to a wide variety of seminars, workshops, symposia, as well as formal courses on advanced imaging technologies. The students and postdocs trained in the Center acquire capabilities to advance existing imaging technologies, invent new imaging methods, and make scientific discoveries using advanced imaging approaches.
John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellowship (JHDSF) in Imaging
The Center provides opportunities for outstanding young scientists at the postdoctoral stage to develop their independent research programs. In partnership with the university-wide JHDSF program, the Center recruits outstanding young scientists who have recently completed a doctorate to work as independent researchers not affiliated with an existing lab. These fellows receive generous funding to run a small, independent research group. Fellows have opportunities to interact with each other as well as other research fellows at Harvard, and are encouraged to teach small courses in their fields of expertise. In addition, each Fellow has the support of a mentoring committee consisting of the Center’s associated faculty members..
