Job Title: Postdoctoral Position
Posted March 4, 2008
The MICADO (MICroscopy improved with ADaptive Optics) consortium unites several of France’s leading experts in the fields of neuroscience and cellular imaging. The goal of the project is to go beyond the physical limitations of current techniques by developing new technology that will improve the resolution of OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) and multiphoton microscopes (2-photon, third harmonic, etc.). The enhancement of the resolution of these devices is directly linked to the quality of the focal spot, and it is well known that penetrating deep into biological tissues degrades the wavefront. It will respond to the urgent need to perform in vivo deep-tissue imaging in domains including neurology, developmental biology and biopsy.
Within the consortium, the Laboratoire d'Optique at ESPCI in Paris, is looking for a skilled postdoctoral candidate at the interface of Physics (Optics) and biology. His task will be to develop a wavefront sensor (OCI, Optical Coherence Interferometer) for biological imaging, and he will be responsible for the technological transfer of this technique, in close collaboration with all the consortium partners: a team of microscopy specialists, an innovative company (Imagine Optics, one of the leaders in wavefront analysis and adaptive optics), and a team of neurobiologists.
The successful candidate will have developed the following skills and qualities during his PhD:
– a good knowledge of experimental optics and microscopy,
– a taste for instrumentation,
– a good ability to work in a team.
Duration: 24 month.
