The International Center for Translational Eye Research (ICTER) is a multi-investigator center for eye research as related to imaging and biochemical techniques to support advances in understanding the etiology and treatment and human blinding diseases. Further information on the research priorities and current expertise of our Center can be found at http://www.icter.pl.
ICTER is looking for candidates with a PhD degree experienced in physics, (optics and photonics), biomedical engineering. Candidates should be interested in translational research and the development of new therapies to cure blindness or other diseases. The postdoctoral researcher will have a direct impact on lab development and its success in publishing in high impact factor journals. The person will be also responsible for performing dynamic research to create a competitive research group. The position will be assigned to Optical Imaging Group led by Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski, focused on developing new imaging techniques aiming at achieving speckle-less imaging based on full-field swept-source optical coherence tomography, for diagnosis, screening and monitoring of blinding eye diseases.
