Postdoctoral research position in
Photo-Acoustic Tomography/Biomedical Optics
The ICFO-Institut de Ciències Fotòniques is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. The successful candidate will be part of a newly funded project carried out jointly by Medical Optics group led by Dr Turgut Durduran and Plasmonic Nano-Photonics group led by Dr Romain Quidant. Our research focuses on translational research bringing biomedical-optical methodologies and nano-photonics from the bench-top to pre-clinical and clinical applications. In particular, the candidate will be responsible for the design and implementation of a 3D photo-acoustic, tomographic imager in oncology models, the relevant data acquisition and analysis as well as in vivo testing on cancer models. This is an multi-disciplinary work which will combine expertise in bio-medical optics, nano-photonics, acoustics, oncology and state-of-the-art imaging modalities. In the long run, these findings will be translated to equivalent studies on humans and are expected to benefit cancer therapy in the clinics.
