The Camera Culture group at the MIT Media Lab focuses on making the invisible visible—inside our bodies, around us, and beyond—for health, work, and connection. The group aims to create an entirely new class of imaging platforms that have an understanding of the world that far exceeds human ability and produce meaningful abstractions that are well within human comprehensibility.
We are looking for a postdoctoral associate to join a highly collaborative team of faculty and researchers focusing on computational imaging, including ultrafast imaging systems, single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) detectors, THz time domain spectroscopy, and novel sensing systems.
The right individual is highly motivated and self-directed with excellent research skills who can work independently and contribute as part of a very broad multidisciplinary team, possessing experience with optics and as many of the following as possible: MATLAB, Python, Labview, Zmax, and FDTD softwares.
The postdoctoral associate will devote about 40% time to research, 30% to grants and industry links, and 30% to lab collaborations. This role offers an opportunity to do state-of-the-art research while developing teaching skills for faculty positions; to be part of the vibrant research community at MIT and the Media Lab, and to attend OSA, IEEE, and other conferences.
This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of extension based on the direction of the research and funding.
