Organisation Description

The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory – INL (http://www.inl.int), is the first and only International Intergovernmental Organisation in the world entirely focused on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.

It was founded under an international legal framework to perform interdisciplinary research, deploy and communicate nanotechnology for the benefit of society. INL aims to be a recognised leading global nanotechnology innovation hub.

Project Specifications: This project is funded by the ANI in frame of the CORPORATE R&D – COPROMOTION PROJECTS – INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS – Programme UTA-Portugal

Name of the project: ExtreMED

Reference number: NORTE-01-0247-FEDER-045932


INL is looking for a junior fellow with a Master degree in physics, biomedical engineering, physics engineering or related to be part of the team executing the “ExtreMED: Extreme Ultrashort Pulses for Advanced Medical Applications and Diagnostics research project”, a collaboration between INL, U Porto, Sphere Ultrafast Photonics, as well as with UT Austin Texas, US.

The candidate will have the opportunity to enter a multidisciplinary field at the interface between nonlinear optics, material sciences and bioimaging research related to medical research.

The candidate shall be involved in the development of a nonlinear microscope system for bioimaging and nanomedicine research. In addition a study of nonlinear nanoparticles shall be conducted using pulse shapers and the findings shall be applied for bioimaging and nanomedine research.

The selected candidate will be working within the interdisciplinary team of the Ultrafast Bio- and Nanophotonics group and in close collaboration with the INL Nanophotonics and Bioimaging corporate facilities, as well as with our collaboration partners from U Porto, Sphere Ultrafast Photonics and UT Austin.

At INL the research will be performed partly in the femtosecond laser lab as well as in the facilities of the Nanophotonics and Bioimaging Corporate laboratories.

The candidate will be encouraged to enrol in the “Laser Photonics and Vision” PhD program at U Vigo or a similar programme, while this is not a project requirement and the academic curriculum lies solely in the responsibility of the candidate.
