Are you interested in working on the interface between physics, engineering and biology, to solve real-life problems and build advanced technological systems that can be used by researchers worldwide?

Job description

If you like tinkering with hardware or the coding of fast computational algorithms to incorporate and extract information from a lot of imaging data, then a PD in super resolution microscopy is just wat you are looking for. The projects concern with the design and realization of high-speed sensor, optoacoustic actuator, adaptive optics, and software for aberration sensing and deformable mirror control and require interdisciplinary work.

Positions

  1. Postdoc on high-speed adaptive optoacoustic systems in super-resolution microscopy
  2. Postdoc on high-speed adaptive algorithms in super-resolution microscopy

About us
We believe that the time is right, both technically and conceptually, to make the step from optical microscopy to optical nanoscopy. We break with the traditional design philosophy of mere addition of optimal components into a system, to instead apply optimal information processing for all components present in the system. The synergy between integrated optics, optoacoustics and information processing allows us to develop completely new nanoscopy methodologies.
The field of smart optics systems is characterized using deformable mirrors, lenses and wavefront sensors and intelligent image processing to enhance the image quality in real-time of scientific observation equipment.

Department
The department Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) of the faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at Delft University of Technology. The Centers' research mission is to conduct fundamental research in systems dynamics and control, involving dynamic modelling, advanced control theory, optimisation and signal analysis. The research is motivated by advanced technology development in physical imaging systems, renewable energy, robotics and transportation systems.
