The Miller Lab offers research opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, professional students, postdoctoral fellows, and sometimes professional staff. Interested candidates are invited to contact Professor Miller by e-mail (dtmiller@indiana.edu).


A PhD student position is available in Don Miller’s laboratory on advanced ophthalmic imaging at Indiana University. The laboratory is looking for a highly motivated student in engineering, optical physics, or a related discipline with an interest to develop cutting-edge optical instrumentation to study noninvasively the retina at the cellular level. The laboratory’s primary focus is on the development and use of adaptive optics and optical coherence tomography, technologies the laboratory has been advancing for the past two decades. Some of our recent work can be found in PNAS: www.pnas.org/content/114/48/12803.abstract and www.pnas.org/content/116/16/7951.short.


The student position is part of the IU Vision Science Graduate Program. The Program includes a highly active group of multidisciplinary vision scientists, mostly from within the School of Optometry but also from Neuroscience, Psychology, Brain Science, Biology, and School of Engineering. Research areas include imaging, optics, neuroscience, visual development, visual psychophysics, biology and biophysics, and involve both basic science and translational studies. Students are supported through a combination of grants and teaching activities.


Application information can be found at https://optometry.iu.edu/admissions/apply/ms-phd-programs.html. A description of the PhD program is available at www.optometry.iu.edu/academics/degrees/phd.shtml. To inquire about the opening advertised here, please contact Don Miller (dtmiller@indiana.edu).
