Research Fellow in Computational Methods for Image Analysis in Biophotonics – AR2386DD
School of Physics and Astronomy
Vacancy Description
School of Physics and Astronomy, Salary: £33,797 - £40,322 per annum, Start Date: As soon as possible, Fixed Term: Up to 24 months
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to work on an EPSRC-funded project.  The work is based within the Optical Manipulation Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy (https://opticalmanipulationgroup.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk). The group aims to build upon a range of internationally recognized work in the area of photonics and its applications at St Andrews. The specific topic area of this post is advanced computational methods for quantitative image analysis in biophotonics.     

We are particularly interested in researchers with prior experience in one or more of the development and application of numerical methods of deep learning or multivariate analysis and computational imaging; multiphoton imaging; light sheet imaging. The post is for up to 24 months, subject to satisfactory completion of a 15-month probationary period. 

The post-holder will be required to undertake predominantly numerical studies with scope to also undertake associated experimental work. They will play a leading role in implementing new optical imaging analysis techniques and procedures, particularly with images of biological samples recorded in our light sheet, structured illumination and temporal-focusing multiphoton microscopes. The work will address global challenges in antimicrobial resistance, neurodegenerative disease, and multimodal functional imaging.    

Informal enquiries (NOT full applications) to: Professor Kishan Dholakia, kd1@st-andrews.ac.uk     

Applications are particularly welcome from women, people from the Black, Asian, Minority or Ethnic (BAME) community and other protected characteristics who are under-represented in research posts at the University.
