Postdoc Research Position in Optical Coherence Tomography at the Institute FEMTO-ST, Besançon, France


FEMTO-ST is one of three largest research institutes in France in the field of Engineering Sciences, having about 730 employees including more than 150 doctoral students.


At the term of the technological project VIAMOS, the demonstration of OCT imaging was made and the present goal is to adapt the developed OCT microsystem for in vivo 3D skin imaging to further address the early diagnosis of cutaneous pathologies. Thus, the main objective of the position will be to take part in the optimisation of the optical design of this optical microsystem for dermatology applications, to develop the adapted image pre-processing procedures (as image denoising, speckle reduction, implementation of phase shifting, etc.) and participate to the development of 3D image processing software reconstructing the micron-scale, cross-sectional imaging of biological microstructures in real time and three dimensions.

We are looking for enthusiastic candidates with a strong ‘scientific drive’ and a demonstrable interest in optical imaging, OCT, interferometry, light tissue interaction, and/or optical instrument design. A general interest in biomedical technologies and the life sciences is of strong interest.

Workplace: Besançon– FRANCE
Skill area: Optical preferable interferometry, OCT and speckle metrology.
required Skills: 1. Solid background about the fringe analysis and analysis of image data.  2. Good knowledge in image processing and programming (LabVIEW, Matlab, etc.).  3. Strong interest in interdisciplinary cooperation.
start date: position immediately available, start before June 2017
Salary range: 2800 €/month
