The Applied Optics Group at University of Kent has a vacancy for a Research Associate to work in endoscopic microscopy, using computational imaging techniques to develop ultrathin needle probes for minimally-invasive diagnosis.

The post is funded by an EPSRC grant ‘Ultrathin fluorescence microscope in a needle’, which includes funds for conference travel. The post is fixed-term for 12 months, and any extension is subject to further funding being secured.

You will be a member of the Applied Optics Group, a friendly and international team working mainly in biomedical optics, including microscopy, optical coherence tomography, adaptive optics and photoacoustics. You will have access to a suite of fully-equipped optical laboratories, with equipment including fusion splicers, a Vytran glass processing workstation, a range of laser systems, high-speed spectrum analysers and oscilloscopes, as well as clean-room and workshop facilities.
