Holography and Diffractive Optics (FH), Microscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography (BM)
Years of Experience:
we are Looking for a Postdoc (for 2 years) or alternatively for a PhD candidate (4 years) for the Research project:
Two-photon fluorescence microscopy with combined pupil/conjugated adaptive optics and remote focusing
starting October 2019 to March 2020 at the latest.
The project focuses on the design and construction of a nonlinear scanning microscope with multi-conjugate adaptive optics and the development of strategies to image through scattering materials.
The biological target application is the research on Glia cell migration in brain tissue. The project is a collaboration with the Dept. of Physiology at the Medical University Innsbruck.
The work comprises optical engineering in the lab as well as scientific programming for optics simulations (Matlab / Python) and controlling lab equipment (Labview). Experience in setting up and working with optical systems is essential.

About Division of Biomedical Physics, Med. University of Innsbruck
Our institute is part of the Medical University of Innsbruck and employs about 20 scientists and students, mainly experimental physicists.
One big research focus lies on Biomedical Optics. We develop novel optical concepts and techniques in microscopy and optical trapping. The use and integration of active elements such as spatial light modulators in optical systems is one of our key strengths.
