PhD fellowship on In2Sight project: scanning multiphoton excitation – multifoci setup.
A PhD fellowship is available (starting November 2021) on the FET European project IN2SIGHT at the University of Milano-Bicocca. The candidate will be enrolled in the PhD program in Physics and Astronomy.
Description. Routine clinical use of biomaterials requires the reduction of the economical and ethical costs of biocompatibility tests (ISO10993 EU norm) which are unsustainable for small-medium industries and for the society. The project aims to an unprecedented breakthrough in in-vivo optical imaging that will radically renew the biocompatibility tests of biomaterials by employing a multispot-multiphoton device implanted in the lab animal. The PhD project is specifically devoted to the design, development and test in-vivo of the multifoci implantable device for non-linear excitation imaging.
The fellowship covers the 3 years duration of the PhD program in Physics, starting on November 2021 and it is based at the University of Milano-Bicocca.
- Master degree in Physics or Biomedical Engineering and high motivation to work in an interdisciplinary environment;
- fluent English skills, both written and spoken;
Previous experience in the design and implementation of optical setups at various levels are also desirable.
Keywords: multiphoton excitation microscopy, aberration correction in optical systems, multifocal imaging
