Postdoctoral Openings in Biomedical Optics and Retinal Imaging Laboratory at University of Illinois at Chicago
Two postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Biomedical Optics and Functional Imaging Laboratory (yaolab.bioe.uic.edu) at the Department of Bioengineering, University of Illinois at Chicago. In collaboration with experienced ophthalmologists and vision scientists, our group is focusing on quantitative retinal imaging to advance eye disease diagnosis and treatment evaluation.
One candidate will support instrumentation development of OCT and super-resolution ophthalmoscopy. Another candidate is responsible for quantitative OCT/OCTA analysis and machine learning image classification.
The selected candidates will have excellent opportunities to interact with researchers in Engineering, Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences for a multidisciplinary training. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in Computer Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics or a related discipline. Experience with optical instrumentation or image analysis is necessary.
Interested applicants should send a CV with research interests and names of three references to Dr. Xincheng Yao via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PhD studentship in biomedical optics and retinal imaging:
PhD studentships are available in the Biomedical Optics and Functional Imaging group within the Department of Bioengineering, University of Illinois at Chicago. Our research lab is working on ultra-wide field fundus photography, functional optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT angiography (OCTA), super-resolution ophthalmoscopy, retinal image analysis and classification.
The PhD student will be involved for imaging instrument development and/or experimental study of retinal morphology & physiology. The specific project of the student can be flexible based on his/her education background and interest. The successful candidate should have a BS/MS degree in Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline. The selected candidate will have excellent opportunities to interact with researchers in Engineering, Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences for a multidisciplinary training.
