Opportunities

NEW OPENING: May 2021

PhD Studentship available  – High Resolution Retinal Imaging.

PhD in Vision Science performing High Resolution Retinal Imaging

A NIH funded PhD studentship is available in the laboratory of Dr. Nathan Doble in the College of Optometry/Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at The Ohio State University (OSU). The successful candidate will enroll in the PhD program in Vision Science at The Ohio State University and conduct their dissertation work within a highly collaborative research environment focused on the development and use of novel high-resolution optical instrumentation for the study of retinal structure and function. The candidate will be expected to assist with construction and validation of novel instrumentation as well as the collection and analysis of the experimental data; preparation of research results for publication and talks; writing the scientific manuscripts, progress reports, and gain experience in grant writing. This particular project will be conducted in collaboration with the University of California, Davis to design and implement full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) to study the structure and function of individual retinal neurons in living human and murine eyes. A description of the PhD program curriculum and graduation requirements can be found at https://optometry.osu.edu/graduate-program-doctor-philosophy. Funding for this position is based upon an expectation that the successful applicant will complete their degree in four years.

Background:

An ideal candidate would have experience in the field of biomedical imaging / optics / electrical engineering. Experience in the development / application of optical instrumentation for biomedical imaging would be particularly advantageous.

Education:

BS / MS in physics, optics, biomedical physics, biomedical engineering, or electrical engineering.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, a statement of research skills and interests, and contact details of three referees (please describe relationship to each). Applicants should send documentation directly to Dr. Nathan Doble (doble.2@osu.edu).

Review of applications by the laboratory PIs will begin immediately. The successful applicant will then secondarily be instructed to apply for admission to The Ohio State University graduate school following the ordinary application procedure and review. This position is available immediately and is not constrained to the posted review and admission cycle to the OSU Vision Science graduate program.

Postdoc Position available  – High Resolution Retinal Imaging.

Postdoctoral Scholar in High Resolution Retinal Imaging

A NIH funded Post Doctoral Scholar position is available in the laboratory of Drs. Nathan Doble and Stacey Choi in the College of Optometry/Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at The Ohio State University (OSU). The successful candidate will work within a highly collaborative research environment focused on the development and use of novel high-resolution optical instrumentation for the study of retinal structure and function. The candidate will be expected to assist with construction and validation of novel instrumentation as well as the collection and analysis of the experimental data; preparation of research results for publication and talks; writing the scientific manuscripts, progress reports, and participation in grant writing.

This particular project will be conducted in collaboration with the University of California, Davis to design and implement full-field optical coherence tomography (FF-OCT) for the study of structure and function of individual retinal neurons in the living human and murine eyes.

Experience:

Candidate should have experience in the field of biomedical imaging or optics. Specifically, a background in development or application of optical instrumentation for the human retinal imaging would be particularly advantageous. Additionally, a high degree of proficiency in programming (e.g. Matlab, LabView, Python, C++, GPU or equivalent) and hardware control (e.g. high speed cameras and digital mirror devices) is required. Excellent communication and writing skills with a good balance of independence and collegiality in research are essential.

Education:

Doctorate in physics, biomedical physics, biomedical engineering, or electrical engineering.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, resume, a statement of research skills and interests, and contact details of three referees (please describe relationship to each). Applicants should apply at:

Undergraduate Research Positions

Vision Science 5998

The College of Optometry at The Ohio State University has opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research. In our laboratory, you will participate in both basic and clinical research projects that includes patients of all ages. In the past these projects have included helping in screening subjects and aiding in the AO imaging, through to image processing and writing software for a variety of laboratory projects.

Once enrolled in VS 5998, you must complete a total of research 25 hours over the course of a semester for credit. Our laboratory runs year-round, including the May session and Summer semesters. Please contact Drs. Choi or Doble for more information.

Federal Work Study

Students with a financial aid package that includes Federal Work Study may also participate in research work similar to those students who are enrolled in VS 5998. This opportunity is available as long as the student has not reached the limit of his/her aid package.
