Light microscopy is the tool of choice for investigation of life organism and cells at the cellular scale. In this project we will develop (low-level) image processing routines for a multitude of applications. Currently the data volume produced by many modalities (e.g. localization microscopy or light sheet imaging) is on the order of many GBs per 3D acquisition due to large and fast camera sensors. In addition the vast amount of data makes data management an important issue nowadays in labs to keep the data organized. Other important topics are reproducibility, sharing of data acquired by government recourses and fair access (FAIR). The data management aspect will be handled by computer scientists from Leiden University (Katy Wolstencroft). For the coding part we will built upon existing code in the lab which is a C++ library with front-end to Matlab and Python. Initially the researcher can work on data processing problems from researchers at TU Delft, but later applications from the network within NL-Bioimaging initiative can be approached.

Research in the department of Imaging Physics is aimed at developing novel instrumentation and methodology in imaging science and sensing technology. Our research products extend existing boundaries in terms of spatial resolution, temporal resolution and information/data throughput. We are pioneers in developing advanced concepts of computational imaging, a marriage between cleverly designed imaging systems and sophisticated post-processing. In everything we do, there is a core of cutting edge physics and engineering of high-tech instruments, of the use of the most advanced computing techniques, and of a very close link to real-life applications. Our work has clear societal impact in the areas of life sciences, healthcare, and industry.

The post doctoral researcher will work under the guidance of Bernd Rieger who is leading a prominent international research activity in the field of optical nanoscopy. He focuses especially on computational microscopy that is the intersection between the fundamentals and engineering of optical imaging systems and image processing algorithms.


The candidate must hold a PhD degree in electrical engineering, computer science or physics with a strong background in image processing relevant to the research outlined above. Experience with numerical simulations and excellent programming capabilities are expected (C++, Matlab, Python), familiarity with state-of-the-art coding tools are expected. The candidate is expected to have an affinity for (cell)-biology and microscopy and willingness to communicate with other stakeholders in the larger Dutch context of data management for light microscopy.


Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.

For international applicants we offer the Coming to Delft Service and Partner Career Advice to assist you with your relocation. An International Children's Centre offers childcare and there is an international primary school.
