Post-Doc Position in Structural and Functional High-Resolution Retinal Imaging at the University of California, Davis
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate position in the Vision Science and Advanced Retinal Imaging Laboratory ( http://vsri.ucdavis.edu/ ) at the UC Davis Medical Center. The goal of our research is to develop the next generation of cellular resolution multimodal retinal imaging instruments to study age-related changes in vision and retinal disorders. The ideal candidate will have strong skills in some combination of retinal imaging modalities, including by not limited to AO, OCT, SLO, multispectral imaging, fluorescence, etc.
A Ph.D. or comparable advanced degree in a relevant area is required (e.g., Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Optics, Vision Science). US citizenship is not required. We value intellectual, ethnic and geographic diversity. Minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. The position is funded for two years, renewable on a yearly basis given adequate progress. Preference will be given to a young person with a track record, who wishes to collaborate on existing projects while pursuing a path toward an independent career.
The laboratory includes state-of-the art engineering facilities located in the Eye Center of the UC-Davis Medical Center (Sacramento) which hosts more than 40,000 patient visits per year. We also have close affiliations with the Center for Visual Science ( http://cvs.ucdavis.edu ). UC-Davis has a large, active community of ~45 NIH-funded vision scientists with interests ranging from molecular to clinical issues.
Davis is a friendly, safe college town close to the cultural attractions of San Francisco and the recreational attractions of the Napa Valley, Sierra-Nevada Range and Pacific coast beaches.
The starting date is relatively flexible and the position will remain open until filled. Salary is based on experience and follows University of California guidelines and benefit schedules.
An application requires a CV, reprints/preprints and the names of 3 references. Inquires by e-mail ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) are welcome before formal application.
