EU RESEARCH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMMEH2020
We are offering a postdoc position within the framework of a European collaborative project (FET-Open Organvision, www.organvision.eu is available!
The position is offered at the Dynamic Optical Systems Lab at Universitat de Barcelona (www.ub.edu/dlight).
The goal of the project is to develop a revolutionary imaging platform for characterizing miniaturized tissue-like constructs called organoids. Organoids are central players in personalized medicine and new drug discovery. Unfortunately, we lack a tool for visualizing and modeling real-time dynamic cellular events in the three-dimensional (3D) tissue-like context of organoids. We plan to fill this void by generating custom-designed 3D illumination patterns combined with a new-multiphysics solver and artificial intelligence.
The candidate's main task will be to design and implement new illumination systems for fast and deep microscopy. She/he will actively participate in the project consortium meetings, present the results at international conferences, write manuscripts and grants, and supervise PhD and master students. The possibility for a short-term visit (up to 3 months) in one of the consortium members' labs will be offered.
