About the Project
For over a century, our understanding of the microscopic world has been built on microscopy. But traditional optical microscopy techniques suffer from major fundamental limitations - images are blurred so that features that are smaller than a wavelength of light, or features that are three-dimensional (that is, all living things) cannot be accurately recorded. In the imaging concepts group we research computational-microscopy techniques that break these traditional rules and apply them to real biological problems such as imaging 3D blood flow within whole zebra fish or within the human eye; or for recording gigapixel images with sub-micron resolution. See links below for additional information.
We seek a PhD student to join our team researching a new computational-microscopy technique that will aim to record three-dimensional movies of super-resolved nanometre-scale cell dynamics. The ideal student will have an enthusiasm for combining optical science, advanced computational techniques and experimental optics. Applicants should have a 1st or 2i degree in Physics, Engineering or a cognate science.
The student will be jointly supervised by Prof Andy Harvey and Dr Jonny Taylor within the Imaging Concepts Group. Please submit a CV and covering letter to Prof Andy Harvey by the deadline above. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the supervisors in advance for informal discussions. Applicants should email a CV with covering letter to Prof Andy Harvey at the address below as soon as possible. Your covering letter should explain your motivation and suitability for the position.
