Postdoctoral Opportunity in Adaptive-Optics Retinal Imaging

A postdoctoral position, in Dr. Joseph Carroll's lab at the Medical 
College of Wisconsin (MCW), is available to a highly motivated and 
ambitious individual with a strong background in optics and/or 
biomedical engineering. This position is appropriate for technically 
trained individuals who are looking to expand their training into 
vision science applications of retinal imaging in order to prepare 
for a career in academia.  The successful candidate will be involved 
in constructing a state-of-the-art adaptive optics ophthalmoscope for 
imaging the living human retina, and will be able to receive 
concurrent training in many aspects of human vision - including 
electrophysiology, psychophysics, and molecular genetics.  Initial 
projects in the lab will focus on using retinal imaging in 
combination with functional measures of vision in order to understand 
the mechanism of photoreceptor-based vision disorders.  The 
successful candidate will be given significant time and dedicated lab 
space to explore independent research projects of their own, and will 
have access to the career development services of the Office of 
Postdoctoral Education at MCW 
(http://www.mcw.edu/display/router.asp?docid=2414).

MCW is located in a suburban setting about seven miles west of 
downtown Milwaukee with easy highway access from all surrounding 
communities. It is one of the most rapidly growing research 
institutions in the country in terms of NIH funding.  The MCW vision 
research group consists of 13 faculty members in multiple departments 
with research in the biochemistry, genetics, cell and molecular 
biology of the retina and anterior segment. The vision research group 
is highly interactive and supported by both Core and Training Grants 
from the NEI.

Qualifications should include a Ph.D. in optics or biomedical 
engineering.  Strong quantitative skills are highly desirable, as is 
experience with MatLab and ZEMAX.    For application consideration 
please forward curriculum vitae, a statement of research activities 
and interests, and the names and contact information of three 
individuals who can provide letters of reference to the address below:
