Complex wavefront shaping is a young and rapidly expanding research field. One of its aims is to obtain sharp images of objects hidden deep inside opaque scattering media. This exciting field combines aspects of scattering theory, computational imaging, adaptive optics and holography.
This project aims to develop a microscope that can image at unprecedented depths inside non-transparent biological tissue without loss of resolution. Important challenges include developing a better understanding of wave propagation in tissue through experiments, simulations, and theoretical analysis, as well as implementing algorithms for image reconstruction and for focusing light deep inside scattering tissue. Funding for this project was obtained from the European Research Council.
You will work on fundamental aspects of imaging in the presence of scattering. As a postdoc, you will develop image reconstruction algorithms, novel simulation strategies, and approaches for focusing light inside stochastic scattering media. You will work together with the rest of the team to demonstrate these approaches in proof-of-concept optical experiments.
We are looking for a quick thinker with strong analytical skills, and a well-developed intuition for wave propagation and scattering. You will work on designing new algorithms for computational imaging and/or complex wavefront shaping. Ideally, you have a background in computational imaging, complex wavefront shaping, inverse modelling problems, or other field directly related to the project. Advanced programming skills in e. g. MATLAB, Mathematica, Python or C++ are essential.
For further information you can contact dr.ir. Ivo M. Vellekoop email@example.com.
Candidates are invited to upload their application, including a letter of motivation, CV, a transcript of MSc grades and names/contact information of 2 or more references to firstname.lastname@example.org. An interview and presentation will be part of the selection procedure. Candidates must motivate their interest and fitness for this particular project. Applications with non-specific motivation letters are not taken into consideration.

As a postdoc, you will be offered an employment contract for the duration of 2 years. In accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU) the gross monthly salary will range from € 3.068,- to € 4.028,- (scale 10) depending on your background and relevant experience. Additionally, the University of Twente provides excellent facilities for professional and personal development, an 8% holiday allowance, and an 8,3% end of year bonus.
The University of Twente. We stand for life sciences and technology. High tech and human touch. Education and research that matter. New technology which drives change, innovation and progress in society. The University of Twente is the only campus university in the Netherlands; divided over five faculties we provide more than fifty educational programmes. The University of Twente has a strong focus on personal development and talented researchers are given scope for carrying out pioneering research.
Within the TNW Faculty (Faculty of Science & Technology) of the University of Twente some 700 staff members and 2000 students are involved in training and research on the interface of chemical technology, applied physics and biomedical technology. Fields of application include sustainable energy, process technology and materials science, nanotechnology and technical medicine. Research, which enjoys a high profile both at home and internationally, has been accommodated in the multidisciplinary research institutes MESA+ and MIRA. The faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders.
