A position is available for an optical engineer to maintain and operate existing custom-built instruments for cellular-scale retinal imaging of the living eye. Responsibilities will also include design and fabrication of new subsystems to enhance these instruments, as well as 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.
The successful applicant will work with a collaborative team of vision scientists investigating the normal and diseased eye who share a number of adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopes for high resolution retinal imaging. Participating investigators include Jennifer Hunter, William Merigan, Jesse Schallek, and David Williams.
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/.
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.
