Deadline: October 24, 2011
School of Medicine and School of Physics and Astronomy, £29,972 – £35,788 per annum, Start: as soon as possible, Fixed Term: 2 years Details This Fellowship is available for 2 years on a programme funded by Cancer Research UK / EPSRC / MRC, working in the Biophotonics collaboration (see http://www.st-and.ac.uk/~biophot).
The objective of this programme is to develop an optical approach, using Raman spectroscopy and its integration with other optical modalities (eg flow cytometry, optical trapping), for the early diagnosis of cancer in clinical samples, with the ultimate aim of generating novel laboratory and fibre-based devices that will improve cancer diagnosis.
This project will allow you to obtain experience with laser physics, optical trapping and techniques in medicine, including the investigation of clinical samples. You will be medically qualified, preferably with postgraduate experience in pathology or other relevant discipline. You will be expected to register for a higher research degree and a suitable honorary clinical contract will be sought where appropriate.
