    Optical (OCT) Physicist Opening at Cylite Pty Ltd

    Cylite is a technology company operating at the cutting edge of optical imaging systems for ophthalmic and related markets. We are in the process of launching a highly innovative product based on Hyper-Parallel Optical Coherence Tomography (HP-OCT) for high-speed imaging of the eye. Production of these instruments is done at our cleanroom facility, using highly sophisticated optical alignment and manufacturing processes. The company is based in Notting Hill, Melbourne, adjacent to the Monash University Science and Technology Precinct, and provides a collaborative, inclusive, and stimulating work environment. We are looking for a talented Optical (OCT) Physicist to join our R&D team.


    The successful applicant will be a key member of the Cylite optics team developing the next generation Ophthalmic 3D imaging instruments and report to our Head of Optical Design. The role will have responsibilities including:

    • Building and testing next generation optical imaging systems and subsystems.
    • Assist the development of signal processing algorithms for advanced high resolution optical imaging systems.
    • Developing and optimizing algorithms and test procedures to calibrate and to qualify instrument performance.
    • Arrange with mechanical design team to release drawings to manufacturers and co-ordinate with suppliers to prototype lens designs.
    • Optical design from specification to review and final test of components.
    • Tolerance analysis and manufacturability
    • Develop a high level of personal expertise on the Cylite OCT optics design, construction of optics assemblies and all corresponding documented processes. Gain a thorough understanding of the underlying Optical Physics and its application at Cylite. Tolerance analysis and manufacturability

    Experience and Qualifications Required:

    • Optics degree, physics degree, or equivalent. PhD and Graduate level applicants welcome.
    • Prior optical system build experience; demonstrable skill in the fine adjustment of precision optics.
