Postdoctoral positions in Biophotonics and Biomedical Informatics and Data Science at University of Houston
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate position in the Biomedical Optics Laboratory (http://bol.egr.uh.edu) at the University of Houston, TX. The position is supported by National Library of Medicine (NLM) Training Program in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science fellowships. The NLM Training Program in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science is an innovative, inter-disciplinary, and multi-institutional training program that trains at the interface between the computational /mathematical sciences and biological sciences/biomedicine to face the biggest challenges in biomedical informatics and data science today. Our accomplished training faculty, history of collaboration, and the combined resources of our Texas Medical Center-area institutions continue our 29-year history of producing the next generation of leaders in harnessing and exploiting the wealth of information to improve healthcare research and decision-making.
The successful candidates will be trained on the intersection of optical imaging and Biomedical Informatics and Data Science. Experience in one of the following areas is desired: optical coherence tomography (OCT), opto(photo)acoustics, light-sheet microscopy (instrumentation and software development), optical elastography/biomechanics, and Brillouin Spectroscopy. The ideal candidate will have experimental skills in optics and/or biophotonics complemented by a strong knowledge of software development.
- Must be US or Dual Citizen, or Permanent Resident (with Green Card) at the time of application.
- Postdoc applicants must be able to start their fellowship by June 15, 2021; they will not be awarded a fellowship if it does not start by this date.
