Position: Research Fellow in X-ray Phase Contrast Imaging
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The University College London Advanced X-Ray Imaging group has obtained funding to develop a new phase-based X-ray microscopy approach to be used as a bridging imaging modality in the Life Sciences. All aspects of the research are innovative: from the imaging method and instrumentation to its practical implementation to the targeted application. The application was triggered by a pressing current gap in multi-scale hierarchical imaging techniques in the Life Sciences
Requirements: Candidates must have a solid background and a PhD or be about to submit a PhD in physics, Engineering, Biology or equivalent. Theoretical and experimental knowledge of x-ray phase contrast imaging and/or x-ray microscopy, familiarity with assembling/testing imaging systems. Candidates must have good demonstrable practical skills in physics and/or engineering and knowledge of at least one software package among IDL, Matlab or LabView
