What about brake fluid which is said to be incompressible. When I push down the brake pedal, the master cylindre pushes the brake liquid inside the hoses which tightens the brakes immediately? So what is the speed of propagation in this scenario if it cannot be faster than c even though brake fluid seems incompressible?

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program is currently recruiting postdoctoral fellows. Applicants must have a PhD or MD and must be US citizens or permanent residents.
The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program is a diverse training program bringing together more than thirteen Departments, predominantly from the Stanford Schools of Medicine and Engineering, in order to train the next generation of interdisciplinary leaders in molecular imaging. Oncologic molecular imaging is a rapidly growing area within molecular imaging which combines the disciplines of chemistry, cell/molecular biology, molecular pharmacology, physics, bioengineering, imaging sciences, and clinical medicine to advance cancer research, diagnosis, and management. SMIS fellows will conduct innovative research in cancer imaging under the supervision of two faculty mentors from complementary fields, in a comprehensive, integrated, flexible program (up to 3 years). Funding is available for stipend, supplies, and travel.
Applicants must have a PhD or MD
Application deadline: May 13, 2013 for a start date in September 2013
