Position: Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow - Optical Microresonator Based Biomedical Ultrasound Sensing
Institution: University College London
Department: Photoacoustic Imaging Group
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: You will work on the development of optical microresonator sensing devices for photoacoustic and ultrasound imaging applications in medicine and biology. The aim of the project will be to design and fabricate high Q polymer optical microresonators for use as highly sensitive ultrasound detectors. The project will involve the use of polymer microfabrication techniques, optical scanning read-out system development, interferometric signal processing, numerical simulations of microresonator performance and acoustic characterisation studies. This project offers an opportunity to undertake research in applied optics and acoustics and contribute to the development of new biomedical imaging techniques
Requirements: A postdoctoral optical physicist or engineer with a track record of research achievement (or the potential to acquire one) is sought. Applicants must have a PhD or be about to submit a PhD (or equivalent) in engineering, physics, or a related discipline.A strong applied optics background is required with experience of free-space and fibre optics, optical systems and preferably optical microfabrication techniques
