The candidate is expected to be creative, self-motivated, and should help create an efficient and friendly atmosphere within the Biophotonics team and beyond to all teams at IPIC and Tyndall. These positions will offer great opportunities for learning and to become internationally visible as the successful candidates will be part of building a new center for biophotonics with a potential to become a key player in the field.
Reporting to Ray Burke, Senior Technology Manager for Biophotonics, the Researcher will conduct specified pieces of research as directed. The role of the Researcher will be mainly, but not exclusively, to provide optical design and algorithm development support to the biophotonics team and carry out strategic research activities as planned in a detailed project plan for specific industry projects and in the general area of fetal pulse oximetry. The Researcher will also act as translator in a multidisciplinary research field of research questions as well as of industry and academic research needs and capabilities; such that highly tructured and well defined research projects can be devised, set up and executed. In particular, the candidate will have a lead role in an industry collaboration project and will be a key person for the optical design and the biophotonics based algorithms. The researcher will be expected to participate fully in collaborative projects.
