PostDoc Biomedical Imaging with Scattered Light

PostDoc Biomedical Imaging with Scattered Light

Published Deadline Location
28 Nov 28 Feb Delft

Job description

Computational Scattered Light Imaging (ComSLI) is a highly promising new imaging technique that resolves nerve fiber pathways and their crossings with micrometer resolution. While other scattering techniques raster-scan the tissue with a light beam and measure the distribution of scattered light behind the sample, ComSLI uses a reverse setup: The whole tissue section is illuminated from many different angles and the normally transmitted light is measured, thus enabling much higher resolutions and requiring only standard optical components (LED light source and camera). Our lab aims at further developing ComSLI and exploiting applications beyond neuroscience.

We are looking for a talented and driven candidate to join our new lab as post-doctoral fellow, guiding the further development of Computational Scattered Light Imaging and exploiting applications beyond neuroscience. Next to the science, we also offer opportunities to career development, in the areas of teaching, leadership, and developing research ideas independently.

Specifications

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)

Requirements

We are looking for a highly motivated and goal-oriented postdoctoral researcher with:

  • PhD degree in physics, biomedical imaging, optical engineering, or a related discipline
  • Expertise in either image processing and data analysis – or experimental work in optical laboratories
  • Good knowledge of optics and microscopy
  • Solid programming skills, preferably in Python (GPU-programming is helpful, but not required)
  • Publications in relevant research journals
  • Experience with student supervision (would be helpful)
  • Ability to work independently and self-driven in a multidisciplinary team
  • Excellent communication skills in English, both in writing and speaking

Conditions of employment

Fixed-term contract: 2 years.

Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.

For international applicants we offer the Coming to Delft Service and Partner Career Advice to assist you with your relocation. An International Children's Centre offers childcare and there is an international primary school.

The position is initially for a fixed term of two years.
