The Biomedical Optics Laboratory (http://bol.egr.uh.edu) in Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Houston, TX invites applications for one or more pre- and post-doctoral positions in the area of optical imaging, photoacoustics, and biomechanics.
Extensive experience in one of the following areas is required: optical coherence tomography (OCT), opto(photo)acoustics, light-sheet microscopy (instrumentation and software development), optical elastography/biomechanics, and Brillouin Spectroscopy. The successful applicants will join dynamic team to work on projects such as optical methods to study tissue (ocular, skin, heart) biomechanics and development of advanced optical methods for developmental biology.
Excellent opportunities exist for collaboration with clinicians from Texas Medical Center. The ideal candidate will have experimental skills in optics and/or biophotonics complimented by strong knowledge of software development.
• Development and maintaining of advanced optical imaging systems (such OCT, optical projection tomography, optotoacoustics, Brillouin microscope, and multi-photon light-sheet microscope).
• Provides high level troubleshooting support to hardware development team.
• Developing software to assist the team for evaluation of newer sub-systems and components.
To apply, please submit a cover letter (detailing relevant experience and career objectives), curriculum vitae (including GPA), and names and contact information for three references to:
