Postdoctoral Positions in Biomedical Optics and Optical Coherence Tomography at the Center for Ophthalmic Optics & Lasers, Oregon Health & Science University
Postdoctoral research opportunities are available in the area of biomedical optics at the Center for Ophthalmic Optics & Lasers (www.COOLLab.net) in the Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). The COOL laboratory is a multidisciplinary team that incorporates optical scientists, image processing experts, ophthalmologists, statisticians, managers, and technicians. The group collaborates with several institutions to develop novel OCT technology, develop diagnostic and surgical planning software, and conduct clinical trials. The laboratory is well supported by the National Institutes of Health (http://www.octnews.org/articles/2920025/optical-coherence-tomography-used-500m-of-federall/) and industry, and has brought many novel diagnostic technology into clinical practice.
Candidates with strong backgrounds in physics and engineering are sought to join in the development of new optical diagnostic techniques such as next-generation optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT-based flow and motion detection, OCT elastography, miniature endoscopy, and image-guided therapy. Clinical application areas include glaucoma diagnosis, retinal blood flow measurement, angiography, retinal disease diagnosis, neurovascular coupling, and corneal laser surgery. The postdoctoral researcher will work with Professors Gangjun Liu and David Huang.
PhD (or equivalent) in Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Electrical Engineering or a related field is required. Demonstrated excellence in one or more of the following areas is required: optical imaging systems, optical design, optical system fabrication, fiber optic systems and components, advanced equipment control with C++ or Labview, image processing and programming in MatLab and Visual C. Creativity and a strong record of publications are highly desirable.
Interested candidates should send their CV accompanied by a cover letter describing training and research experience. Address correspondence to Dr. David Huang, and send by email to: Kathy Torok at email@example.com.
