Project of Smart Nanoscopy of Biological Tissues

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

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.

High-resolution smart imaging systems for automotive and semiconductor applications

Do you want to be a part of a rapidly growing Control of Scientific Instruments (CSI) lab? This year the CSI Lab was awarded participation in the EU ECSEL (Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership) project MADEin4. The CSI lab will be involved in the large consortium of over 40 partners to develop new, beyond state-of-the-art solutions for industrial challenges in the fields of Machine Learning, Sensor Fusion, and Computational Optics. These tools should enable European industry to realize the next industrial revolution "Industry 4.0". Industry 4.0 embraces a number of new technologies developed in order to increase the productivity and predictability of industrial processes, such as smart use of data, sensors, and control algorithms. On-line image-based quality control poses several challenges, including environmental conditions, contradicting requirements on the image quality and cycle time, on the image resolution and available data bandwidths, on the defect sizes and the inspected area.

If you like to develop new, beyond state-of-the-art solutions for industrial challenges, if you want to invent new algorithms in the fields of Machine Learning, Sensor Fusion, and Computational Optics, and not scared to try them out on a hardware platform, than a PhD in smart machine vision is what you are looking for.

Applicants should have the following qualifications:

  • Master 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 his/her time;
  • Wide-ranging interdisciplinary interests and skills:
  • Focused and organized;
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills;
  • Curiosity;
  • Demonstrated ability to apply creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to produce innovative concepts and solutions.
