A postdoctoral or research scientist position is available in Larina Lab in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at the Baylor College of Medicine to develop functional optical imaging methods toward investigation of developmental mechanisms. We are a dynamic highly collaborative team of optical engineers and biologists, investigating biomechanical aspects of biological processes in mouse models of human disorders. Our studies bring together optical system design, OCT, confocal/multiphoton microscopy, optogenetics, technology development in functional optical imaging and data processing (4D angiography, cilia beat mapping, cardiodynamic analysis, elastography), vital fluorescent reporters, genetic mouse models of human disorders, developmental and reproductive biology questions. Positioned in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, the lab takes advantage of unprecedented resources and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
The applicant must hold PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering, Optics, Biomechanics or related field, have hands-on training in optics, experience with optical system design, functional measurements (Doppler, angiography, elastography), computational and imaging skills. Extensive expertise in optical imaging and signal/image processing are essential. An experience in the area of optical coherence tomography is highly desired. The candidate should have strong publication record, good communication and writing skills, exceptional work ethics, and great attention to details. Experience working with mouse models is a plus.
