Project Description

The Imaging Concepts Group pioneers new techniques for quantitative imaging within the eye including multispectral imaging of retinal and scleral blood oxygenation, computational scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, optical coherence tomography and imaging of retinopathy of prematurity.

In this project the student will develop and apply new techniques for quantitative retinal imaging including using structured light and snapshot spectral imaging to quantify retinal chromophors, metabolism and to characterise systemic vasculature. That is, imaging of the retina will be used as a window on systemic health. The student will use and apply the principles of optics, imaging and mathematics at a deep level and will develop a working understanding of the relevant biology through specialist courses and through collaboration with clinicians and biologists.

The student will work within the Imaging Concepts Group consisting of two academics, ten PhD and EngD students and six post-doctoral researchers conducting fundamental research into the development of a range of advanced imaging techniques and their application in biological, medical, consumer imaging, remote sensing and surveillance fields. The group conducts collaborative research with industry and academic researchers across, Glasgow, the UK and Internationally within newly refurbished researcher laboratories benefitting from over £1M of recent investment in equipment.

The position will suit somebody with a good first degree in Physics, a related physical science or Engineering who enjoys combining with theory, experimental and computational techniques and is attracted to research at the life-science interface. An enthusiasm for innovation and speculative thinking is particularly encouraged.

In the first instance applicants should email a CV and covering letter, ASAP, to Prof And Harvey at [email protected]

Funding Notes

The position is available from October 2015 and will be funded through for four years through the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral training in Integrative sensing and Measurement (http://www.gla.ac.uk/research/opportunities/isensingmeasurement/).
