Reporting to the Head of Biophotonics, the position of Senior Scientist will be expected to provide a supporting operational role in the expansive research programme and in the supervision and management of the Biophotonics@Tyndall group at IPIC. The successful candidate will also be directly responsible for one or more of the projects to be initiated under this exciting new venture, including finding solutions to existing clinical and pre-clinical challenges and the advancement of techniques such as diffuse reflectance, fluorescence, Raman and photoacoustics.
The candidate is expected to be creative, self-motivated, and should inspire group members to work efficiently in a friendly atmosphere and collaborative environment. This is a key position, of central importance for the success of building this new biophotonics group at Tyndall. The main technical area of expertise will therefore most likely be within waveguide engineering, a very intriguing field with potential for break-through within deep tissue imaging and manipulation. This work will primarily be conducted in collaboration with Prof. Stefan Kröll at Lund University and Lihong Wang at CalTech. The expertise area of research might also be within biomedical optics systems or integrated optics, other central fields of research within the team.
