Optical Engineering Position, Advanced Technology for Retinal Imaging:

A position is available to work with a collaborative team of vision 
scientists investigating the normal and diseased eye who share a number 
of custom-built adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopes for high 
resolution retinal imaging. Participating investigators include Jennifer 
Hunter, William Merigan, Jesse Schallek, and David Williams. The 
successful applicant will be responsible for maintaining and operating 
existing instruments, designing and fabricating new subsystems to 
enhance these instruments, as well as designing and fabricating new 
optical instrumentation for vision research. In addition, the applicant 
will be responsible for performing imaging experiments and for training 
new undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and CVS 
faculty to use AOSLOs.

The successful applicant will have had hands-on experience with the 
design, construction, and alignment of complex optical instrumentation. 
Experience in the field of ophthalmoscopy is not necessary. MS or PhD in 
Optical Engineering preferred.

Rochester is an exciting place to pursue a career in biomedical optics, 
with The Institute of Optics, the Center for Visual Science, and the 
Flaum Eye Institute here at the University, as well as local companies 
with expertise in optics and imaging. For additional information see the 
Center for Visual Science page http://www.cvs.rochester.edu/ and the 
Advanced Retinal Imaging Alliance page http://www.aria.cvs.rochester.edu/.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and names of three
