Postdoctoral position for the development of a low-cost, portable near-infrared diffuse optical monitor for intensive care units (collaboration with U. Texas Southwestern)

Application deadline:

ICFO is offering up to two postdoctoral positions to well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientists who wish to enhance their scientific careers in a friendly and stimulating environment. The successful candidates will be joining the ICFO-Medical Optics group led by Prof. Turgut Durduran. The group’s main expertise is in diffuse optical monitoring and tomography which uses photon diffusion to probe “deep” (0.1-10cm) into tissues. Our research aims to advance the field in theoretical instrumentation and application oriented approaches in parallel. We focus on applications in neurology and oncology and in both pre-clinical animal model studies and in clinical human studies. Inter-disciplinary, collaborative work forms the core of our vision and we routinely work with biomedical centers, hospitals and engineering departments in Spain, around Europe and abroad. In particular, we have strong ties with other centers in Barcelona area, e.g. with the Barcelona Medical Photonics Network.
