Academic Profile

Liu Linbo received B.Eng in Precision Instrument in 2001, and M. Eng. in Optical Engineering in 2004, from Tianjin University, China. He received PhD in Graduate Programme in Bioengineering (GPBE) in 2008 from School of Medicine, National University of Singapore. From 2008-2011, he received his postdoctoral training in Wellman Center in Photomedicine, Harvard Medical School (HMS) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) where he developed and established a new generation of OCT technology termed micro-Optical Coherence Tomography (µOCT). Dr Liu was promoted as an Instructor in Dermatology at HMS before he joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering as a Nanyang Assistant Professor in 2012.

My research interests are mainly focused on development and validation of non-invasive, cellular and sub-cellular resolution imaging methods for disease diagnosis and life science research.

Postdoctoral fellow position in the area of high resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices.
The successful candidate will work on a collaborative research project with a focus on micro-optical coherence tomography, synthetic aperture endoscopy, and point-of-care optical imaging devices.

Specific requirements:
1) A PhD’s degree in optical instrumentation, optics and optical technology, precision instrument or related fields;
2) Extensive experiences in optical microscopic or endoscopic system design and alignment;
3) Experiences in designing and development of opto-mechanical systems such as an OCT endoscope;
4) Research track records (publications) showing self-motivated, independent, and innovative research ability in the above mentioned areas;
5) Practical skills including C/C++ programming, lens design and simulation, and mechanical design are preferred.
Responsibilities include:
1) Development and validation of optical imaging system (such as OCT endoscope) for quantitative measurement and evaluation of pathophysiological processes;
2) Development of algorithms for advanced imaging functions and quantitative image analysis.

Remuneration and benefit:

The remuneration package will be very competitive and negotiable based on the qualifications, experiences, and job scope. Annual bonus and salary raise can be justified according to scientific contributions and contributions to research group development (publications/patents/licensing, external grants, PhD student training).

To apply, please submit a cover letter (detailing relevant experiences and independent achievements), curriculum vitae, and names and contact information for three references to:
