Postdoctoral Position in Biomedical Optics
Description: Postdoctoral research positions are open for candidates interested in developing the next generation of imaging technologies for the brain and eye. Applicants with a background, expertise, and interests in one or more of the following areas: biomedical optics and light-tissue interaction, medical signal and image processing, fiber optics / photonics technologies, diffuse optics, and microscopy will be considered. Compensation will be commensurate with experience.
Qualifications: The candidate must have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, physics, applied physics, or other relevant discipline. The candidate must have demonstrated a strong background in one of the above areas, as evidenced by publication of papers in peer-reviewed journals; and be able to work both independently and in an interdisciplinary team. Candidates with broad expertise in programming / simulation, experimental optics, and biology / medicine are preferred. Interested applicants should submit, via e-mail in pdf format, an updated curriculum vitae, the contact information for three references, and copies of three publications from previous research on which the applicant has made a primary contribution.
About UC Davis: UC Davis is ranked 9th among U.S. public universities (U.S. World and News Report) and the Department of Biomedical Engineering is ranked 8th in the nation in research expenditures by the NSF. Davis is located within 1-2 hours of San Francisco, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe and the Northern California coast offering access to a wide range of outdoor and cultural activities and an excellent quality of life.
About Our Laboratory: Our laboratory is dedicated to the development and application of multi-scale optical techniques for studying and diagnosing disease in the brain and eye. Trainees in our laboratory will work in a highly interdisciplinary environment, acquiring a broad skill set from fundamental biophotonic technologies to biology and clinical medicine. We are supported by funding from the NIH, the UC Davis College of Engineering, and the Glaucoma Research Foundation.
