DOH-6 Researcher in CMOS image sensor electronics for surgical assistance.
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
This position is jointly sponsored by Biophotonics at Tyndall National Institute and Microelectronic Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI).
Biophotonics at Tyndall is a newly established collaborative research programme based at the Tyndall National Institute led by Professor Stefan Andersson-Engels. The Irish MEDTECH sector includes 18 of the top 25 medical device companies and this group works closely with these companies. The Group’s focus will be to form close collaborations with clinicians, research centers and companies to accelerate biophotonics technology and rapidly deliver breakthrough technologies into the hands of health-care providers. Using photonics with a focus on optical imaging combined with other photonics based modalities as a platform for the faster development and deployment of more accurate, less invasive diagnostic and treatment methods for cancer and other diseases. The new programme has been formed by the Tyndall National Institute, the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC) and University College Cork, under a €5M award from Science Foundation Ireland.
Microelectronic Circuits Centre Ireland (MCCI) is an EI / IDA technology center hosted at Tyndall National Institute. Its mission is to carry out industry-led world-class Analog, Mixed-Signal and RF integrated circuit research and to deliver trained people and IP to industry. MCCI is already collaborating with 35 companies and many of the staff eventually transfer into the thriving microelectronics industry in Ireland. MCCI targets real-life applications with its research and currently has projects in diverse topics such as DNA detection, next generation optical communications, bio-sensing, imaging for security applications and early cancer detection. MCCI is carrying out innovative research in the areas of Radio Frequency, Frequency Synthesis, high speed optical transceivers, high performance data-converters and power management integrated circuits to enable new applications.
Reporting to Dr. Daniel O’Hare, Senior Researcher at MCCI, the position involves the design of a novel sub 1mm2 CMOS image sensor and interface electronics to assist medical professionals performing surgery. It will involve working with the Biophotonics team to understand the system requirements and then design an Integrated Circuits to meet those specifications.
