Vacancy Description
School of Physics and Astronomy, Salary: £33,797 - £40,322 per annum, Fixed Term: 12 months, Start: As soon as possible
 
Details
Applications are invited for Research Fellows 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; multiphoton imaging; light sheet imaging. The post is for one year in the first instance but with scope for extension.

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 TRAFIX microscopes.

Start Date: As soon as possible.
