SAE- 13 IPIC Senior Postdoc – Biomedical Theme
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
We have one prestigious senior Postdoc position that will commence by Oct 2019. The successful candidate will join the Irish Photonics Integration Centre (IPIC), Ireland’s centre of excellence for research and innovation in photonics, as it undergoes a rapid expansion programme to grow to 220 researchers, to become one of Europe’s top photonics integration research centres. As part of a new centre award, four research multidisciplinary themes are launched, each of them based on more than 10 dedicated researchers. The daily coordination of the Biomedical theme will be conducted by the successful candidate. The position will offer the opportunity for you to:
• Complete a cutting edge research project in one of the areas listed below
• Collaborate with our 17 Principal Investigators and their research teams
• Access Tyndall’s world-class research facilities
• Publish in leading journals and present at top international conferences
• Complete advanced training courses in photonics
• Develop translational skills, e.g. project management, communication & dissemination and entrepreneurial skills
• Connect with our global network of 30 industry and more than 100 academic partners
• Join a diverse community of young researchers from across the world and participate in one of our vibrant student chapters
Our research in the Biomedical Theme, led by IPIC Deputy Director Stefan Andersson-Engels, will address the development of ultra-compact image sensor technologies to advance medicine in a wide range of clinical specialities. We are now seeking the senior postdoc to work full time on the Theme to coordinate the research programme that cuts across 5 PIs, including 3 Postdocs and 10 PhDs, on the day-to-day basis. The challenges for the theme ranges aspects of developing an ultra-compact image sensor platform, optical powering and communication with the sensor, packaging the device and its specifically developed integrated circuits as compact as possible, as well as translating the device into medical applications. The specific research for the position is all around the image sensor.
The position will be based at Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork. If you are interested in helping us achieve our ambition, complete and submit an application form and motivation letter.
The candidate is expected to be creative, self-motivated, and should inspire group members to work efficiently in a friendly atmosphere and collaborative environment. This is a key position, of central importance for the success of building this new biomedical theme at IPIC. The main technical area of expertise will most likely be within micro camera technology. The expertise area of research might also be within microelectronics, or other fields related to the development of micro-image sensors specifically developed for biomedical applications.
