Job description

Department

Research in the department of Imaging Physics is aimed at developing novel instrumentation and methodology in imaging science and sensing technology. Our research products extend existing boundaries in terms of spatial resolution, temporal resolution and information/data throughput. We are pioneers in developing advanced concepts of computational imaging, a marriage between cleverly designed imaging systems and sophisticated post-processing. In everything we do, there is a core of cutting edge physics and engineering of high-tech instruments, of the use of the most advanced computing techniques, and of a very close link to real-life applications. Our work has clear societal impact in the areas of life sciences, healthcare, and industry.

Maresca lab

The research will be performed at the Department of Imaging Physics at the faculty of Applied Sciences of the Delft University of Technology. At the Maresca lab we pursue fundamental advances at the interface of ultrasound imaging physics and molecular engineering, taking advantage of the discovery of acoustic biomolecules to interface ultrasound waves with cellular processes. The resulting technologies will be applied in many areas of biology and medicine, and a primary focus of the lab is the non-invasive ultrasound assessment of vascular function at all scales, from arteries down to capillaries and cells.

The bio-lab manager will be responsible for maintaining the instruments and the safety in the lab. He/she will be in charge of lab protocol standardization to ensure reliable performance, instruct lab members on good practices and serve as the bio-laboratory's primary contact.

He/she will act as a resource on ethical/regulatory compliance for the research group, and will contribute to day-to-day supervision of undergraduate students.

The bio-lab manager will also participate in scientific research that includes ultrasound imaging, microscopy, cell culture and molecular biology. He/she will be part of scientific publications. This is a part-time position for the duration of the project, set to 0.8 FTE for 2,5 years.
