The Rockefeller University seeks a Senior Research Associate to join Neurotechnology and Biophysics. To further push the boundaries of neurotechnology development and brain-imaging, we are seeking to fill a leadership role in the Vaziri Laboratory of Neurotechnology and Biophysics (LNB) who can develop an independent and highly synergistic research program aligned with the ongoing efforts in the laboratory. The successful candidate will be imbedded in LNB benefiting from the existing laboratory infrastructure and scientific environment while leading a team supported by independently as well as jointly acquired external funding. Possible areas of the focus of the research program of the applicants may include but are not limited to development of new optical or non-optical methods for interrogating neuroactivity; imaging through scattering media; computational imaging technologies, machine learning and advanced statistics; development of early stage technologies for bioimaging and biology based on conceptually new approaches from quantum optics/quantum sensing, ultrafast optics, nano-photonics or other areas; and/or development of new molecular sensors and use of biochemical or synthetic biological approaches.
Ph.D. in physics, optics, optical/electrical engineering or related fields required. Must have demonstrated scientific excellence and substantial contributions in research in candidate's field, ability to manage multiple tasks and projects and work as a key part of an interdisciplinary team, excellent organizational and communication skills and willingness to work outside their core expertise. Must be highly motivated, ambitious and goal-driven. Prior experimental work in academia or industry in one and more of these areas highly desired: designing and building optical systems, ultra-fast optics, fiber optics, computational modeling, systems neuroscience preferred.
We offer an excellent benefits package, tuition reimbursement and a competitive salary. The Rockefeller University is located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, on a 15-acre campus, along the East River (www.rockefeller.edu/views.php).
