Postdoctoral position in optical coherence tomography Department of Bioengineering, UC Riverside
The University of California, Riverside is situated in a historic citrus growing area surrounded by mountain ranges. Riverside is about an hour away from ski slopes, surfing, or hiking in mountain or desert environments, and housing in the area is more affordable than in many other parts of southern California. UCR offers a unique combination of a world-class research university with an exceptionally diverse population, and is located in a prime position to take advantage of other universities, research institutes and biotech industries present in southern California.
A postdoctoral research fellowship in the area of optical coherence tomography (OCT) is available in the Neuroscience and Optical Imaging Research (NOIR) lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Riverside. This appointment will be made at the rank of postdoctoral fellow at a level commensurate with the applicant's experience.
The fellowship will focus on development and application of OCT imaging systems for examination of neural structures. Current projects include OCT-based detection of changes in blood oxygenation in retinal and brain structures, and examination of label-free optical markers for neural activity using phase-resolved detection, polarization-sensitive OCT, and subtle changes in intensity/attenuation. The ideal candidate for this position is an organized and creative problem-solver experienced with advanced optics, programming, biomedical engineering, computational methods, and image analysis. The applicant should be capable of leading a multidisciplinary research team and working effectively with graduate and undergraduate students.
Interested candidates are encouraged to send a CV accompanied by a cover letter describing any previous research training, specific areas of interest, and contact information for three letters of reference. Address correspondence to Dr. B. Hyle Park at firstname.lastname@example.org .
