*Postdoctoral position:   adaptive optics imaging of retinal blood flow*

A fully-funded postdoc position is available in the Jesse Schallek Lab 
<http://aria.cvs.rochester.edu/our_work/blood_flow.html>at the 
University of Rochester. The research position will deploy advances in 
adaptive optics to study capillary blood flow and hemodynamic regulation 
in the living retina.By imaging single blood cells in the living eye, 
our research seeks to better understand the impact of diabetes on the 
smallest vessels of the retina.Research will be conducted in human 
subjects and animal models of disease.

The postdoctoral candidate will have the opportunity to work in the 
collaborative environment of the Advanced Retinal Imaging Alliance 
<http://aria.cvs.rochester.edu/> of the University of Rochester.This 
group includes the research efforts of David Williams, Bill Merigan, 
Jennifer Hunter, Mina Chung and Jesse Schallek.The postdoctoral trainee 
will benefit from interacting with this group toward novel ophthalmic 
imaging design and study of retinal function.

Applicants with exemplary background in retinal imaging or study of 
blood flow control in the brain and other living tissues are strongly 
encouraged to apply.Outstanding applicants will have training in one or 
more of the following fields: _retinal imaging technology (including OCT 
and adaptive optics), BOLD fMRI mechanisms, intrinsic signal optical 
imaging, study of diabetic retinopathy or study of microvascular disease 
(in other tissues)_.Candidates with either biology and/or engineering 
focus will be suitable for this position.

Applicants should have a PhD, MD or equivalent training.Senior graduate 
students nearing completion of their degree are strongly encouraged to 
apply.Opening is available immediately and position will remain open 
until qualified individual is identified.Appointment is for 1 year and 
may be extended up to 3 years depending on progress and review.

Interested applicants should send CV and names/contact information of 
references to jschall3 at ur.rochester.edu 
<mailto:jschall3 at ur.rochester.edu>Please include a cover letter 
detailing your current research activities, expertise and the reasons 
for your interest in the position.
