Research Associate / Postdoctoral Fellow in Adaptive Optics and Optical Coherence Tomography
The Advanced Ophthalmic Imaging Laboratory at Indiana University is looking to fill a postdoctoral fellow or research associate position. The successful candidate will join a team of scientists and engineers that are developing adaptive optics–optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) for studying structure and function of the living human retina at the cellular level. The system is opening exciting new directions to study both normal and pathological vision.
The laboratory (www.opt.indiana.edu/dtmiller/Index.aspx) is part of an active and well-funded community of vision scientists and engineers working in the areas of visual optics, retinal imaging, OCT, and adaptive optics. A major aim of the group is to create advanced optical instrumentation for eye research.
Indiana University is a major research university founded in 1820. It currently enrolls over 32,000 undergraduates and 7,500 graduate and professional students on the Bloomington campus with over 110,000 students in the university system. The School of Optometry has very active research and graduate programs with numerous collaborations with other disciplines within the university. The School has several major teaching clinics as well as outreach affiliations. Bloomington is a relaxed community located in a beautifully wooded and hilly area of the state where cultural and recreational opportunities abound, housing costs are low, schools are excellent, and commuting time is short. More information about the School is available at www.optometry.iu.edu, and about the University at www.indiana.edu.
Qualifications for the position include a PhD and strong experimental background in OCT, adaptive optics, or a related area. Strong communication skills are critical. Experience with optical system design and construction, digital image processing (e.g., in Matlab), and Fourier optics are desirable. Knowledge of visual optics is not required, though beneficial. The project is supported by federal funding.
