Designation/Position- Postdoc Fellowship 2019 in Sweden
Umeå University, Sweden invites application for Postdoc Fellowship 2019 in Sweden from eligible and interested candidates
About- At the Department of Applied Physics and Electronics strong research is conducted in several different areas, such as energy technology, biomedical engineering and laser spectroscopy.
Research/Job Area- Physics, chemistry, biomedical engineering or other relevant discipline
Location- Umeå University, Sweden
As applicant, you should have a sincere interest in developing optical imaging techniques and quantitative spectroscopic methods.
The following qualifications are required:
- A PhD degree in physics, chemistry, biomedical engineering or other relevant discipline.
- Original publications in peer-reviewed journals in at least one of the above areas.
- Extensive experience with optical imaging techniques and image processing, both theoretically and experimentally.
- Ability to conduct research independently, and strong problem-solving skills.
- Good ability to co-operate.
- Excellent oral and written communication and scientific writing skills in English.
Desirable qualifications are:
- Documented knowledge in at least one of the following areas: hyperspectral or discrete frequency infrared imaging, mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, optics or optical microscopy.
- Experience with tactile and mechanical sensors for biomedical applications.
- Evidence of conducting collaborative research in a multidisciplinary environment.
The position is a 2-year full-time employment with start date in early 2020.
Research group is looking for a postdoctor to work on the development of mid-infrared laser absorption and photothermal imaging for histology. To further explore the role of carbon monoxide, a specific aim is to make use of the mid-infrared transparency window around 2000 cm-1, where the radiation is not absorbed by the tissue, to study metal-carbonyl compounds and CO-releasing molecules in live cells.
As postdoctor you will work in a creative and ambitious interdisciplinary environment. Collaboration partners include the Centre for Biomedical Engineering and Physics, where tactile sensors are used for the characterization of biological tissue, the University Hospital of Umeå, imaging platforms at the Chemical Biological Centre, and the Raman Spectroscopy Group at Luleå Technical University.
