Research Fellow in Biophotonics University of St Andrews

Research Fellows in Biophotonics
University of St Andrews -Schools of Physics & Astronomy, Biology and Medicine

Salary: £30,122 - £35,938 per annum
Start: As soon as possible
Fixed term for one year

ML1276

Up to three posts are available based on the Biophotonics Research at the University of St Andrews.

Up to two postdoctoral positions, each for one year in the first instance are available for collaborative work between the Schools of Physics & Astronomy and Medicine at the University of St Andrews. These posts are geared towards clinical translation of methods of Raman spectroscopy. The project in particular will require the candidates to have a very good optics knowledge/physics background but a willingness to perform biological cell culture and also a willingness to engage with biomedical end-users including studies at Ninewells hospital, Dundee. Previous experience in Raman spectroscopy and appropriate multivariate analysis methods is desirable but not essential.

formal enquiries (NOT full applications) may be addressed to: Professor Kishan Dholakia, School of Physics and Astronomy, tel: 01334 463184, email kd1@st-andrews.ac.uk, Professor Andrew Riches, School of Medicine , tel 01334 463603, email acr1@st-andrews.ac.uk or Professor Simon Herrington, Dundee Cancer Centre, tel 01382 383125, email s.herrington@dundee.ac.uk

ML1275

Up to three posts are available based on the Biophotonics Research at the University of St Andrews.
A postdoctoral position for one year in the first instance is available for collaborative work between the Schools of Physics & Astronomy and Biology at the University of St Andrews. The project aims to look at advanced methods of cell transfection using optical methods, based on our development of a novel photoporation technology (e.g. see http://photon.st-andrews.ac.uk/sulsa). The project in particular will require the candidates to have a very good optics knowledge/physics background but keen to perform biological cell culture and also a willingness to engage with end-users from both Academia and Industry and co-ordinate group activities in the biophotonics area.

Informal enquiries (NOT full applications) may be addressed to: Professor Frank Gunn-Moore, School of Biology tel 01334 463525, email fjg1@st-and.ac..uk or Professor Kishan Dholakia, School of Physics and Astronomy, tel: 01334 463184, email kd1@st-andrews.ac.uk

Research Fellow in Deep Raman

The College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences- Biomedical Physics - School of Physics and Astronomy, in Exeter wishes to recruit an Associate Research Fellow and Research Fellow to participate in the project entitled 'A novel Deep Raman spectroscopy platform for non-invasive in situ molecular analysis of disease specific tissue compositional changes'. These EPSRC funded posts are available from 01 July 2013 for 36 months. [more]

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
