Early stage researcher (optics, multi-photon microscopy, nonlinear optical microscopy)

The PhD candidate will focus her/his research on the development of high-speed nonlinear optical microscopy methods such as two-photon excited confocal fluorescence microscopy in combination with optical photon reassignment methods. The successful applicant will develop novel soft- and hardware for high-speed super-resolution optical microscopy and characterize living endothelial cells and liver tissue in close collaboration with partners from within the DeLIVER network. The candidate will benefit from training programs organized by partners of the DeLIVER network, providing PhD students with broad competences, experience, and skills in cutting-edge interdisciplinary research related to cutting edge optical methods and biomedicine. The ideal candidate has experience in optics, Java and/or Python programming, and a keen interest in developing instrument control based on microcontrollers or FPGAs. The project involves a series of secondments to academic and industrial partners in the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Norway.

Benefits

 

According to the MSCA-ITN rules of the Horizon 2020 program, 3.072 €/month (gross amount) + mobility and family allowances (if applicable).

Eligibility criteria

 

Eligibility criteria of ESR positions:

  • Candidates may be of any nationality.
  • By the time of recruitment by the host organization, candidates must not have received a doctorate or equivalent.
  • By the time of recruitment by the host organization, candidates must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research career. Full-time research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which formally entitled him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited or seconded, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is or was ever envisaged.
  • By the time of recruitment by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Germany for more than twelve months in the last three years. Short stays, such as holidays, are not included.
  • Candidates should have a M.Sc. or equivalent in Biophysics, Optics, Optical Engineering, Computer Science, or similar.
  • Candidates should have excellent knowledge of the English language, spoken and written.

 

Selection process

 

Eligible candidates will be ranked. The top-ranked candidates will be contacted by email and asked to participate in a Skype interview. Following the interview, the top candidate might be invited to visit LaVision Biotec and project partners at the University of Bielefeld in person for further discussions

Skills/Qualifications

 

DeLIVER is an EU funded project which includes 6 academic and 3 industrial beneficiaries representing 6 European countries and 5 partners (in Europe, USA, China, and Australia). The multidisciplinary DeLIVER research network combines groups active in cutting edge research in physics and biomedicine dedicated to developing and utilizing novel super-resolving optical methods to unravel the structure and function of nanosized pores in endothelial cells, the main barrier between blood and vital organs in the human body.

As a beneficiary in this network we are looking for a brilliant early stage researcher to join our group starting in January 2018 for 36 months. We welcome applications of highly motivated and hard-working PhD candidates, able to work in a collaborative environment and exposed to multidisciplinary challenges. The ideal candidate has some experience in the design and operation of multi-photon fluorescence microscopes, optics design, electronics, and computer programming (primarily Python).
