New PhD Position Available: Nonlinear endomicroscopy for in vivo deep imaging

Monday June 1 2009

An enthusiastic and capable PhD student is sought to work on the development of a new nonlinear optical endoscope using wavelengths at the transparency window of most biological tissues (1200 -1300 nm) and high NA lenses. The developed endoscope would have high resolution and be able to view deep under the tissue epithelium. It will be used for early cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment.

Students must be eligible for admission to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Swinburne University of Technology, preferably having some experience in optical instrumentation. The selected candidate will recieve a scholarship stripend of AU$20,400 per annum for full-time study over a period of 3 years and 6 months. Commencment is as soon as possible and located at the Hawthorn Campus in Melbourne.
