Project Description

The last decade has witnessed a revolution in imaging made possible by the development of high-performance electronic detectors and computer processing. The optics within commercial imaging systems have changed little however, but this is about to change. By combining modern optical design and manufacturing with computational image recovery a new class of imaging systems is being developed that enable imaging with capabilities that have not previously been possible; such as imaging with extreme depth of field, the ability to detect range through a single aperture or to form diffraction-limited, wide field-of-view images with very simple optics. The Imaging Concept Group is at the forefront of these developments.

The PhD student will research new concepts and capabilities in computational Imaging for in vivo imaging using either light-sheet microcopy or microendoscopes. The ideal student will have an enthusiasm for developing a deep understanding of theoretical, computational and experimental techniques in optics with an interest in applying these techniques in biomedical applications.

The Imaging Concepts Group consists of about 20 researchers (PhD/EngD students, postdocs, visiting scholars and academics) conducting leading-edge research in advanced imaging techniques and their commercial and biomedical applications. Research is conducted in newly refurbished laboratories with seven optical tables and ~£1.5M of state-of-the-art optical instrumentation and equipment. Additional information and an overview of recent ICG research in computational imaging can be found in links in the accompanying PDF (see References).

Applicants should have a good first degree of equivalent in a Physical Science or Engineering. Applications should be made by submitting a curiculum vitae and covering letter to Prof Andy Harvey at [Email Address Removed]. Informal enquiries are also welcome on +44 141 330 8606. The position will remain open until it is filled. Early applications are encouraged. The standard EPSRC eligibility criteria apply to this position; non-UK applicants should explain how they qualify for funding according to EPSRC guidelines.


Research will be conducted within the imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University. http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/physics/staff/andyharvey/
