[visionlist] Postdoctoral position in biomedical optics
Miller, Donald T.

Wed Mar 21 19:15:15 GMT 2007
A postdoctoral position in Don Miller's laboratory is available to
explore functional and structural imaging of the human retina at the
single cell level. His laboratory has developed a new high-resolution
camera that yields unprecedented 3-D resolution (3x3x5 microns^3) inside
the human eye. The camera has been recently expanded for
polarization-sensitive imaging. The successful candidate will further
develop these optics technologies in parallel with their use to study
the human retina. Additional information about Miller's laboratory is
available at http://www.opt.indiana.edu/people/faculty/miller.htm.
The laboratory is part of the Indiana University Visual Optics Group, an
active community of vision and optics scientists working in the areas of
visual optics, retinal imaging, OCT, and adaptive optics
(http://research.opt.indiana.edu <http://research.opt.indiana.edu/> ).
A major aim of the Group is to create advanced optical instrumentation
for eye research. The School of Optometry has an extensive clinical
program, and an internationally renowned research and graduate program.
Indiana University is one of the oldest state universities west of the
Alleghenies with many of its graduate programs ranked among the best in
the country. Bloomington is a relaxed community located in a beautifully
wooded and hilly area of the state where cultural opportunities abound,
cost of living is low, schools are excellent, and commuting time is
Qualifications for the position include a PhD and strong experimental
background in optics, ideally with expertise in OCT, adaptive optics, or
a related area. Strong communication skills are highly attractive.
Experience with optical system design and construction, digital image
processing (e.g., in Matlab), and Fourier optics are necessary.
Knowledge of visual optics is not required, though beneficial. The
project is supported by the NSF Center for Adaptive Optics at
www.ucolick.org/~cfao and a multi-institutional NIH grant. Collaboration
with participating institutions and other group members will be
significant. Indiana University is an equal opportunity, affirmative
action employer, and minority and women candidates are especially
encouraged to apply.
Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience. Priority deadline
for applications is April 1, 2007; however, applications will be
reviewed until suitable candidate is identified. Applicants should send
a CV, a statement of research interests, and contact information of
three references to:
