Postdoctoral Position in Optical Imaging and Image-Guided Surgery in Ophthalmology

Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, United States
Employer Description

This position spans several institutions within Vanderbilt including:

The Vanderbilt Cutaneous Imaging Clinic (VCIC) was founded in 2016 as a platform for direct clinical translation of engineering for clinical impact in dermatology, oncology, and related specialties. The mission is seamless integration of technology-based patient care and translational research. 

Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center's eight formal research programs focus on the discovery of new approaches for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer. These active and collaborative research programs generate approximately $142 million in annual research support from public and private sources. The Translational Research and Interventional Oncology Research Program translates advances in mechanism-based research into improved detection methods and therapies for cancer. With a primary focus on lung cancer, melanoma and leukemia/lymphoma, the program is dedicated to new discoveries in early detection and molecular oncology, and genotype-driven early phase trials for all cancer types.

The mission of the Vanderbilt Biophotonics Center (VBC) is to establish a trans-institutional initiative in biophotonics research, technology development and education at Vanderbilt University. The center spans across multiple schools (EngineeringMedicine and Arts & Science) and interfaces with existing centers and institutes (VICCVINSEVUIISVBIVIIBREViSE) while being anchored in Engineering. The center is focused on targeted educational programs for medical residents, fellows as well as graduate and undergraduate students and provides opportunities for learning for high schools students interested in this area. 

Job Description

The Diagnostic Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions Lab (PI: Kenny Tao) at Vanderbilt University is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral position to develop novel technologies to visualize and quantify structural and functional changes in the retina during ophthalmic surgery. Previous system implementations included combinations of OCT and reflectance confocal imaging with machine-learning based tracking algorithms. Additional functionality to be integrated include OCT angiography, OCT elastography, and augmented-reality feedback.

Job Requirements

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Biomedical Engineering and a strong background and publication record in optical engineering, electronics, and hardware design/translation. Previous experience with OCT, ophthalmic imaging, and C/C++/CUDA/machine-learning is preferred but not required.
