Ultrasound wave physics enables imaging of biological tissues with high spatial and temporal resolution (~ 50 ms, 100 µm) across multiple centimeter depths. Recently, this capability was enhanced with the discovery of acoustic biomolecules - proteins with physical properties enabling them to scatter ultrasound.
The candidate will develop advanced ultrasound imaging methods for the fast volumetric in vivo detection of acoustic biomolecules in order to maximize the impact of this nanotechnology in biology and medicine. The laboratory has a particular focus on brain and cardiac imaging applications. Research will include both simulation and experimental work.
The candidate will be a member of the Imaging Physics department at TU Delft, and will collaborate strongly with the Bionanoscience Department of TU Delft as well as the Neuroscience department of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam.
We are looking for highly talented and motivated candidates with an attestable interest in ultrasound imaging and biomedical applications. The candidate should have an MSc degree in Acoustics or related disciplines. Good communication skills in English are required.
TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills.
