[England] Early Stage PhD Fellowship on Novel Optical Systems
The Nicolaus Copernicus University (NCU) has a vacancy for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to pursue a Early Stage PhD fellowship on Novel Optical Systems, UK, funded for a period of 36 months.
The Early Stage Researcher will be registered as a PhD candidate and employed at Nicolaus Copernicus University with full employee benefits. The candidate employed for the Early Stage PhD fellowship on Novel Optical Systems, UK, will carry out the majority of his/her research at the Institute of Physics NCU in the Medical Physics Group.
The Early Stage Researcher hosted by NCU will develop new Optical Coherence Tomography instruments using rapidly tuned compact laser sources covering two spectral bandwiths, leveraging the expertise in OCT at NCU. OCT is an emerging new imaging technique, capable of high-resolution, 3-D imaging with a penetration depth of a few millimeters in biological tissue, which to date has been principally employed for retinal imaging of the eye.
The applicant will be required to satisfy the eligibility criteria for Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers, i.e.;
- Must be within the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research career
- Must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Poland for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to their recruitment
The applicant will also be expected to have a first or second class honours (or equivalent) undergraduate degree in physics or a related discipline.
Dr. Maciej Wojtkowski ([email protected]) will be the supervisor for this project. Please contact him to discuss further details of the project, and for details on how to apply for the position.
