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

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Jesse Schallek 
<http://aria.cvs.rochester.edu/our_work/blood_flow.html#&panel1-3> at 
the University of Rochester (LINK: 
http://aria.cvs.rochester.edu/our_work/blood_flow.html ) 
<http://aria.cvs.rochester.edu/our_work/blood_flow.html#&panel1-3>. The 
research position will deploy advance imaging technology, including 
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 blood flow in 
the smallest vessels of the body and how this flow is disrupted in human 
diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, Alzheimer's disease and 
others.Research will be conducted in human patients and animal models of 

The postdoctoral fellow will 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 collaborative 
interactions in this group toward novel ophthalmic imaging design and 
study of retinal function.

Candidates will be recruited from two areas of focus:1) those with 
strong backgrounds in blood flow study of the brain or other tissues or 
2) those with exemplary technical backgrounds with brain or retina 
imaging technologies._We encourage applicants from outside the field of 

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 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.Openings are 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.
