Job description

The positions are part of the ERC Starting Grant NEUTRINO of Dr. Sander Wahls. Starting Grants are highly competitive and granted solely based on scientific excellence. The overarching goal of NEUTRINO is to push nonlinear Fourier transforms from being a mainly theoretical tool into engineering practice.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who has a strong background in a field  involving the analysis of data related to water waves such as, for example, wave forecasting or Tsunami detection. The successful candidate will investigate the application of nonlinear Fourier transforms, which offer unique data analysis capabilities such as the detection of hidden solitons, in her or his field of interest. No prior experience with nonlinear Fourier transforms is expected, but experience with nonlinear effects will be a plus. The research will be carried out in close collaboration with a team of currently four other researchers working on numerical algorithms and other related topics related to nonlinear Fourier transforms.

Requirements

The applicant has earned (or is about to earn) a very good doctoral degree and has research experience in a field that involves water wave data analysis. A good command of the English language is expected.

Conditions of employment

TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

Contract type: Tijdelijk, two years

Department

Faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering

The 3mE Faculty trains committed engineering students, PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers in groundbreaking scientific research in the fields of mechanical, maritime and materials engineering. 3mE is the epitome of a dynamic, innovative faculty, with a European scope that contributes demonstrable economic and social benefits.

The Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) 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, robotics and transportation systems (www.dcsc.tudelft.nl).
The group actively participates in the Dutch Institute of Systems and Control (DISC).

Additional information

Please send your application including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, your doctoral thesis, a transcript of courses taken during the M.Sc. and (if applicable) graduate school with grades, and contact information for three academic references to Dr. Sander Wahls (s.wahls@tudelft.nl). Dr. Wahls can also be contacted for more information about this vacancy. Screening of applications will begin in January 2019. The vacancy will remain open until a suitable candidate have been found.

The positions will ideally start on March 1st, 2018, and run for two years. Other starting dates can be accommodated. Upon good performance, the positions will be extended if possible.

2 PhD: Adaptive super-resolution at the TU-Delft

2 PhD positions in adaptive super-resolution at the TU-Delft

Faculteit/afdeling: Faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering
Niveau: Universitair
Functie-omvang: 38.0 uur per week
Contractduur: 4 years
Salaris: 2266 - 2897 euro per maand (volledige dagtaak)

Do you want to be a part of a rapidly growing super-resolution lab, this year awarded with two major grants from the Dutch Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)? Are you interested in working on the interface between physics, engineering and biology? Would you like to solve real-life problems and build advanced technological systems that can be used by researchers worldwide?

Project: SMART NANOSCOPY OF BIOLOGICAL TISSUES

Advanced imaging methods such as multi-photon excitation microscopy make 3D imaging in thick live tissues possible. If you like tinkering with hardware or the coding of fast computational algorithms to incorporate and extract information from imaging data, then a PhD in super resolution microscopy is just what you are looking for. The projects involve both hardware and software design, and includes the design of high-speed imaging systems, adaptive optics, and software for aberration sensing, deformable mirror control and data analysis.

The 2 positions are:
1. PhD on high-speed adaptive optics systems in super-resolution microscopy
2. PhD on high-speed adaptive algorithms in super-resolution microscopy

You will be part of a research group that aims to increase nanoscopy resolution and robustness so that it can be used within intact live tissue. We believe that the time is right, both technically and conceptually, to make the step from optical microscopy to optical nanoscopy. We break away from 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 combination of integrated optics and information processing allows us to develop completely new nanoscopy methodologies. During the next few years we will develop new optical methodologies in close collaboration with neuro-scientists who apply them. For us, it's all about creating new innovative methodologies that truly enable leading scientists to discover more about cellular functions and the neural network. That includes making our nanoscopy accessible, easier to use and more automated through smart hardware and data analysis tools.

Functie eisen

Applicants should have the following qualifications:
- A master’s degree or equivalent degree preferably in physics, computer science or control;
- Able to gather and analyse data effectively from different resources to build an eloquent, comprehensible and convincing story;
- Able to manage your time;
- Wide-ranging interdisciplinary interests

and skills:
- Focused and organised;
- Strong interpersonal and communication skills;
- Curiosity;
- Demonstrated ability to apply creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to produce innovative concepts and solutions.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners.
