Post-doctoral fellow in multimodal optical microscopy

In the frame of the inter-institute Intensive project, the University of Limoges is recruiting a post-doctoral fellow in charge of contributing to the development of an advanced optical imaging instrument and setting/executing the methodology of data collection and analysis corresponding with the different biological models to be studied. The latter will comprise on one side cell cultures realized on ceramic biomaterials, in the frame of research activities undertaken by IRCER (Institute of Research for Ceramics) about bone tissue engineering. On the other hand, GEIST institute will provide biological models related to the core competencies of its laboratories: models of immunoglobulin deposition disease, cancer, neuropathy, bacterial biofilms, wood.

  • The post-doctoral fellow will participate to the development of a multimodal* and versatile** microspectroscopy instrument.
  • He/she will be in charge, in close collaboration with the actors of Intensive project, of setting and executing the methodology of data collection and analysis that will be the most adapted to each biological model.

* Multiphoton/vibrational modalities: SHG/THG/TPF/CARS (second harmonic generation, third harmonic generation, two/three photon fluorescence, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering)
** Use of different laser pulse regimes and scanning methods
