Arnold and Mabel Beckman Postdoctoral Scholar in Macular Degeneration – Browne Lab | University of California, Irvine


Posted: 11-Apr-23

Location: Irvine, California

Type: Full Time



Job Function:


Years of Experience:


Internal Number: JPF07701

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Postdoctoral Scholar Position is a prestigious competitive award to support young researchers conducting research in Macular Degeneration. The Scholar position is to support a postdoctoral scholar conducting research in the Browne Lab (Eye-Testing Lab) in the Center for Translational Vision Research at UCI. The Browne lab is dedicated to engineering tools to image and test visual function. Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the aging population. We seek to develop imaging systems and therapies for humans suffering from macular degenerative conditions. We are building cameras (2-photon (2P) excited fluorescence, diffuse light optics, stereo multispectral imaging and ultrasound) to visualize the retinal structure and function. We are also developing systems to enhance retinal organoid manufacturing for therapeutic transplantation and scientific inquisition. To complement each of these lines of research, we employ computer vision and deep learning to enhance data acquired from imaging systems. 

Candidates for this position are expected to have expertise in imaging system engineering using combination of skills that should include some of the following: optical engineering, CAD, computer programming, Matlab, Labview, 3D printing and data analysis.

Appointment as a Postdoctoral Scholar requires a doctoral degree (e.g., Ph.D., M.D.) or the foreign equivalent.
