The Department of Physics and Technology is pleased to announce a vacant position of a PhD Research Fellow in the optics group in connection with the FRIPRO Young project ‘Label-free nanoscopy of living cells through nanoscale refractive index profiler’.
The position is for a period of four years. The nominal length of the PhD programme is three years. The fourth year is distributed as 25 % each year and will consist of teaching and other duties.
The objective of the position is to complete research training to the level of a doctoral degree. Admission to the PhD programme is a prerequisite for employment, and the programme period starts on commencement of the position.
The workplace is at UiT in Tromsø. You must be able to start in the position in Tromsø within a reasonable time after receiving the offer, the the preferred start-up date of the position is 1st October 2021.
The doctoral research fellow will be a part of 3d-nanoscopy team, led by Assoc. Prof. Krishna Agarwal, who works on super-resolution microscopy, also referred to as nanoscopy. Please see for more information. She is also the principal investigator of the aforementioned FRIPRO Young project. The goal of the project is to develop a new label-free nanoscope comprising of a novel innovative instrument and a novel innovative computational solver, which together provide nanoscopic resolution for reconstructing the refractive index of sub-cellular organelles in biological living cell samples.
The fellow will work towards his/her PhD degree with the following goals:
This project lies at the intersection of applied physics, applied mathematics, engineering, and biology. It requires a highly motivated, enthusiastic, goal-oriented, and diversely talented candidate. In turn, it provides an opportunity for doing a very interesting cutting-edge and heavily multi-disciplinary research in early stage of research career.
The nature of the project and the job scope is that it allows an all rounded development of the fellow. The fellow will be encouraged and supported to build his/her resume towards their ambition in academic, technopreneurial, or mainstream industrial career. There is an opportunity for the fellow to build his/her research network through inheriting the collaborations of the group. Major collaborators, beyond UiT and directly relevant to the project, include USoton (UK), NTNU (Norway), UiO (Norway), IIT (Italy), IFOM (Italy), University of Campagnia (Italy), University of Barcelona (UB), EMBL (Germany), NUS (Singapore), ASTAR (Singapore), BIT (China), Sun Yat Sen University (China), and IIT (India). The fellow will also be encouraged to become a member of (DLN), a national platform for multi-discplinary research with life sciences as a focus. DLN offers several PhD courses and career development programs, which the fellow can participate in.
For more information about the position and UiT, please contact Assoc. Prof. Krishna Agarwal:
The position requires a Norwegian master degree, or equivalent foreign degree, in physics, mathematics, or electrical or computer engineering.
