Position: Research Fellow in biomedical photoacoustic imaging instrumentation
Institution: University College London
Department: Dept of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering - Photoacoustic Imaging Group
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The aim of this project is to develop the next generation of photoacoustic tomography scanners based on optical-ultrasound detection. This scanner will also incorporate optically-generated ultrasound as a second imaging modality, building on recent preliminary work. UCL’s Photoacoustic Imaging Group has a great deal of experience in developing photoacoustic scanners and novel ultrasound detection arrays. The successful applicant will be expected to draw on, and build on this experience
Requirements: A engineer or physicist with strong practical optical engineering skills is sought. Candidates must have a PhD in a relevant subject or equivalent qualifications and/or work experience. Experience of optical system design, lasers, free-space and fibre optics, interferometery, PC based data acquisition and instrumentation control is desirable. Knowledge of, or an interest in, biomedical optics or ultrasound would also be advantageous but is not essential. Good inter-personal skills and an ability to work well in a multidisciplinary team of engineers, physicists and mathematicians is essential
