[visionlist] Postdoc position

Postdoctoral
position:   adaptive optics imaging of retinal blood flow

            A fully-funded
postdoc position is available in the Jesse
Schallek Lab 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 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@ur.rochester.edu  Please include a cover
letter detailing your current research activities, expertise and
the reasons for your interest in the position.
