The Optical Tweezers group at UCL (www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucapphj) is looking to recruit a postdoctoral research associate to work on the British Council-funded project “Manipulation and Destruction of Cancer Cells Using Cavitation Bubbles by Optical and Acoustic Tweezers”.
The aim of the project is to use optical and acoustic techniques to
manipulate microscopic bubbles in the vicinity of cancer cells, with the
goal of destroying them either by enhancement of drug uptake, or by
physical disruption of the cell membrane.
The project will involve several research visits to our collaborators
Dr Burcin Unlu (Bogazici University, Istanbul) and Dr Giovanni Volpe
(Bilkent University, Ankara).
This position is funded for 18 months in the first instance.
The successful candidate should have (or be about to obtain) and PhD
in Physics or Medical Physics, and expertise in experimental optics
and/or acoustics (including photoacoustics).
Please contact Dr Phil Jones for further detail, or see jobs.ac.uk to apply.
The closing date for applications is 26 August 2016.
