Postdoctoral and PhD student openings are available immediately at the Biomedical Optics and Functional Imaging Laboratory. In collaboration with experienced ophthalmologists and vision scientists, our ongoing research includes ultra-wide field fundus photography, functional optical coherence tomography (OCT), super-resolution ophthalmoscopy, machine learning based retinal image analysis and eye disease classification (https://yaolab.bioe.uic.edu/).
The postdoctoral fellows and PhD students will be involved in optical instrument development, experimental study of retinal morphology and physiology, and/or image analysis and classification. The selected candidates will have excellent opportunities to interact with researchers in Engineering, Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences for a multidisciplinary training.
The postdoctoral candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics or a related discipline. Experience with optical design and construction is essential. Proficiency in Labview and Matlab programming is expected. Hand-on experience in retinal imaging study is desirable.
The PhD candidate should have a BS/MS degree in Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline.
Interested applicants should send a CV with research interests and names of three references to Dr. Xincheng Yao via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
