Postdoctoral Scholar - The Center for Memory and Recording Research
University of California San Diego
The Center for Memory and Recording Research at the University of California, San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar to join a growing research team. The Post-Doctoral Scholar will make creative contributions to research projects involving the development of a MEMS device that can be used for intraocular surgical procedures. The major difference of the proposed approach from other ophthalmic surgical tools is that the new device will be physically detached from any forms of handles and/or wiring, and that the motion of the device is controlled through a magnetic field created outside the human body.
