Postdoc Position Available

We are searching for a new postdoctoral fellow! This opening is available ASAP for a candidate with a strong background in diffuse optics and translational clinical research.

Responsibilities: This postdoctoral research associate will contribute to projects that involve the development and translation of diffuse correlation spectroscopy/near infrared spectroscopy to the study of pediatric brain injury. The candidate is expected to be creative, self-motivated, and capable of working in a collaborative environment.

Qualifications: The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in one of the following disciplines: biomedical engineering, physics, electrical engineering, or a related field. The candidate must demonstrate an academic record of scientific excellence, independent research, and good writing and communication skills. Strong experimental skills and hands-on experience with optical systems are essential; experience in near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS) are preferred. Experience in programming such as MATLAB/C/C++ will be favorably considered.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and CV including the names of 3 references by email to Dr. Erin Buckley ( with “Postdoc Application” in the subject.
