Postdoctoral Fellow in Optoacoustic Super-resolution Microscopy

Postdoctoral Fellow in Optoacoustic Super-resolution Microscopy

TUM - Technical University Munich

Munich, Germany

The mission:

Optoacoustic imaging combines high contrast and high resolution of optical excitation with deep penetration of ultrasound imaging. These characteristics give optoacoustic imaging a competitive edge over other imaging methods currently applied in biology and medicine. The successful candidate will lead advances within an innovative microscopy program that develops hybrid optical and optoacoustic microscopy with resolution beyond the diffraction barrier. The goal is to combine the superior resolution of optical microscopy with the multi-modal ability offered by optoacoustic imaging deep within living tissue, thus merging the advantages of both techniques and creating a tool for super-resolution imaging at super-depths.

The project is geared toward system and methodology development of an advanced imaging system that delivers label free imaging and sensing of diverse biological components. We expect this project to result in a substantial technology leap, leading to important biological breakthroughs and translation into clinical diagnostics. The development process will give the successful candidate the opportunity to strengthen her*his skills in state-of-the-art optics and laser technology and cutting-edge computational approaches. She*he will be involved in every stage of microscope design, testing and application, as well as with dissemination of results in the form of publications and potentially patents.

Your profile:

The successful applicant must have the following:

  • A Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering, Optics or a related discipline;
  • Excellent track record of research achievements and publications in top-ranked journals;
  • Strong motivation, scientific curiosity and commitment to scientific excellence;
  • Research experience in one or more of the following areas: optics; lasers; optical design; microscopy, particularly confocal, multi-photon microscopy;
  • Expert knowledge of imaging, image processing/data quantification and analysis;
  • In-depth programming skills in MATLAB/Labview for device control and synchronization;
  • Team player skills and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative environment;
  • Excellent command of the English language;
  • Experience in construction of optical imaging systems “from scratch” is considered an advantage.
