Scholarship Description: ICFO, in collaboration with the University Politecnica de Catalunya BarcelonaTech (UPC), is offering a predoctoral fellowship to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic graduate student who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment, as well as to obtain a doctoral degree in the Photonics. The Ph.D. Position is offered for a new project in translational oncology carried out jointly by the Medical Optics group led by Prof. Turgut Durduran at ICFO and IDIBELL – The Bellvitge Institute of Biomedical Research. The successful candidate will be working primarily at ICFO as part of the Medical Optics group in collaboration with IDIBELL. Their research focuses on translational research bringing biomedical-optical methodologies from the bench-top to pre-clinical and clinical applications in cancer/oncology research. In particular, the candidate will be responsible for the design and implementation of a tomographic imager in cancer models, the relevant data acquisition and analysis as well as in vivo testing on cancer models. These findings will then be translated to equivalent studies on humans and are expected to benefit cancer therapy in the clinics.
