Posdoc Position: Functional connectivity analysis of the avian brain through diffuse optical tomography
• Posted by: Jason W. Trobaugh
• Posting date: Nov 4, 2022
• Where: University of Texas at Austin
• More information at: https://utaustin.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UTstaff/job/UT-MAIN-CAMPUS/Postdoctoral-Fellow—Botero-Lab_R_00023103
The Botero Lab at the University of Texas at Austin invites applicants for a Postdoctoral Research position in the development of High Density Diffuse Optical Tomography (HD-DOT) and functional connectivity in birds.
This position will provide opportunities for extensive collaboration (both virtual and through occasional site visits) with a research team of world leaders in neuroimaging and evolutionary biology located in Austin, TX (Carlos Botero, Integrative Biology @ UT Austin), Saint Louis, MO. (Joseph Culver, Biophotonics Research Center @ Washington University in Saint Louis) and Bochum, Germany (Onur Güntürkün, Biopsychology @ Ruhr-Universität Bochum). The successful applicant will assist with the development of methods for the analysis and interpretation of functional connectivity data and with the development and validation of HD-DOT imaging for birds. The project will also offer opportunities to develop new evolutionary methods for large-scale cross-species comparisons of functional connectivity.
Our team is looking for a highly collaborative colleague with a robust quantitative background, extensive coding experience, and ideally, some imaging/instrumentation experience. The Botero Lab offers an inclusive, nurturing, and family-friendly culture with ample career development, intellectual exploration, and outreach opportunities tailored to the applicant’s own abilities and interests. All are welcome to apply.

• Posting date: Jun 7, 2022
• Where: Dallas, TX, USA
• More information at: https://www.utsouthwestern.edu/education/graduate-school/postdoctoral-scholars/assets/non-minimally-invasive-optical-tissue-monitoring-busch.pdf
A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of David Busch at UT Southwestern Medical Center. This laboratory focuses upon development and translation of diffuse optical and correlation spectroscopic instrumentation to monitor the central nervous system. The fellow will be focused on translation of diffuse optics into the surgical and critical care setting. This work is performed in close collaboration with enthusiastic clinical collaborators. Current projects include non-invasive monitoring of cerebral hemodynamics during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, microvascular dysfunction associated with COVID-19, and minimally invasive monitoring of the CNS in large animal models. Fellows will be expected and encouraged to develop new lines of research, collecting pilot data for their future independent research careers, within the general themes of the lab.
PhD position at Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB)
PTB’s Department 8.3, Biomedical Optics, is looking for a candidate to fill a PhD position at their Berlin-Charlottenburg site from 1 May 2022 for a fixed term of three years.
The work includes research into functional near-infrared spectroscopy and the oximetry of the human brain. Within the scope of a joint project with NIRx Medizintechnik GmbH Berlin (which develops wearable systems for near-infrared spectroscopy of the brain), we are developing and adjusting innovative analytical and investigative methods to determine the concentrations of oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin in the human brain.
