Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral researcher position in optical imaging systems for biomedical applications. The project involves the development of the novel catheter-based OCT imaging system to enhance the robotized flexible interventional endoscope for diagnosing and treatment of diseases in the digestive system. The project will be conducted at the ICube Research Center affiliated with Strasbourg University and located in the medical campus in the center of Strasbourg (France).

The successful candidate will work with the research group of dr. Michalina Gora supported by the ATIP-Avenir grant awarded by the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM). The group is focused on highly interdisciplinary projects that bridge photonics and robotics to improve performance of microscopic imaging modalities in organs with complex geometry and access. We are aiming at addressing existing clinical needs by developing prototypes and translating them to the clinical practice in close collaboration with medical doctors.

The project will be conducted at the ICube Research Center located in the medical campus in the center of Strasbourg (France). The ICube, affiliated with Strasbourg University, brings together approximately 500 scientists coming from the areas of engineering, photonics, computer and medical sciences. Strasbourg is a lively and international city that offers a uniquely rich environment for translational and clinical research. The Strasbourg University Hospital, the Institute of Image-Guided Surgery (IHU), and the world largest training center in minimally invasive surgery IRCAD are all unified around the theme of development of novel technologies for diagnostic and minimally invasive treatment.

The position is available as soon as possible for an initial duration of one year with the possibility to extend.
