Open-source sharing of high-speed brain imaging system

The Hillman lab develops a wide range of imaging technologies for neuroscience research. We have a method - wide field optical mapping (WFOM) - that we would like to share with broader researchers. We are looking for a talented Engineering undergraduate / masters with strong organizational, design and programming skills to help us polish, document and share the design of our (relatively simple to build) optical imaging system online. There will be ample opportunities to learn about neuroimaging research and image analysis.
