    We invite applications from qualified candidates for a research position at
    the level of a post doctoral fellow within the Department of Ophthalmology,
    University of Toronto, Canada. The project for which this position is being
    considered has a focus on understanding the biomechanical environment within
    the lamina cribrosa, and the role of lamina cribrosa biomechanics in
    glaucoma. The project includes software development for analysis of light
    microscopic images of lamina cribrosa tissue from human eyes, and subsequent
    use of this software to reconstruct lamina cribrosa structure and relate it
    to measured biomechanical features. We will provide an environment where
    professional development of the candidate will be encouraged, including
    interactions with graduate students, researchers, technicians, and
    clinicians. The project is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health
    Research. More information about the principal investigators can be found at and .

    Candidates are required to have an earned Ph.D. in bioengineering, computer
    science or a related field. Very strong programming skills in a Windows
    environment are an absolute requirement. Previous research experience in at
    least two of the following areas is also needed: biomechanics,
    ophthalmology, medical image processing, Matlab.

    Please submit applications by email, including names and contact information
    of at least three referees. The anticipated starting date is late 2001.
