Visual Optics Postdoctoral/Research Fellow Opening at Oregon Health & Science University
A postdoctoral research fellow position is available in the Center for Ophthalmic Optics & Lasers Lab ( www.coollab.net ), Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health & Science University. This is an outstanding opportunity for a candidate to use optical coherence tomography to conduct visual optics research in an academic ophthalmology setting. The researcher on this position will work with a team of scientists, engineers and physicians to develop ultrahigh-performance OCT systems for comprehensive optical characterization of the anterior eye and wide-field ocular surface topography, to improve post-refractive surgery intraocular lens power calculation, therapeutic scleral lens design, diagnosis and classification of corneal shape irregularities, and assessment of anterior eye tumors. OCT will be used for structural measurements as well as angiography and elastography. Machine learning approaches will be used for disease classification.
Applicants with strong experience in optics, visual optics, and imaging in general are desirable. Salary is commensurate with the NIH scale.
The candidate shall have a PhD in biomedical engineering, optics, or related field of research. Experience with digital image acquisition and processing programming (Matlab, Labview, C++) is required. Experience with ray-tracing software (e.g. Zemax), topography, modelling algorithms, and machine learning are desirable. Requires organizational skills, strong writing and oral communication skills, and database management abilities. The candidate should have demonstrated innovation, initiative, problem-solving skills, and ability to work well independently and with team members.
