A NIH funded Post Doctoral Scholar position is available in the laboratory of Drs. Nathan Doble and Stacey Choi in the College of Optometry/Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at The Ohio State University (OSU). The successful candidate will work within a highly collaborative research environment focused on the development and use of novel high-resolution optical instrumentation for the study of retinal structure and function. The candidate will be expected to assist with construction and validation of novel instrumentation as well as the collection and analysis of the experimental data; preparation of research results for publication and talks; writing the scientific manuscripts, progress reports, and participation in grant writing.
This particular project will be conducted in collaboration with the University of California, Davis to design and implement full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) for the study of structure and function of individual retinal neurons in the living human and murine eyes. The position will involve travel between OSU and UC Davis.
Experience: Candidate should have experience in the field of biomedical imaging or optics. Specifically, a background in development or application of optical instrumentation for the human retinal imaging would be particularly advantageous. Additionally, a high degree of proficiency in programming (e.g. Matlab, LabView, Python, C++, GPU or equivalent) and hardware control (e.g. high speed cameras and digital mirror devices) is required. Excellent communication and writing skills with a good balance of independence and collegiality in research are essential.
Education: Doctorate in physics, biomedical physics, biomedical engineering, or electrical engineering.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, a statement of research skills and interests, and contact details of three referees (please describe relationship to each). Applicants should apply at www.jobsatosu.com and search for job opening number 461349 . The College offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits.
