Project Description

Main location: Biophotonics group, University of Dundee
Secondary location: James Hutton Institute, Invergowrie
Start : from February 2016
Duration: 3 years

The recent development of a transparent soil offers great scope to explore and unravel complex soil biological processes. The discovery of this new material in the laboratories at JHI has attracted much attention from the scientific community and as part of this success we are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic scientist to develop microscopies for imaging plant roots in soils, live and in situ. This work is part of a prestigious award from the European Research Council (ERC) and involves multidisciplinary and international collaborations.

Applicant attributes: The ideal applicant will have a good degree in Physics or Engineering and have some experience in optics with a desire to work in an interdisciplinary team.

Further information: further information is available by contacting either Mike MacDonald ([email protected]) or Lionel Dupuy ([email protected])

Subject areas: Applied Physics, Biophysics, Optical Physics, Plant Science, Medical/Biomedical Physics
