Postdoctoral and PhD Fellowships – Functional Optoacoustic Neuroimaging

The Multiscale Functional and Molecular Imaging Group seeks highly motivated scientists to lead the development of groundbreaking optoacoustic neuroimaging technology for large-scale recording of brain activity. The positions are funded through several recently awarded ERC and NIH grants, which provide an excellent platform for cutting-edge research and extensive multi-disciplinary international collaborations. Applications should be sent to Prof. Dr. Daniel Razansky with "Optoacoustic Neuroimaging" in the subject line.

Master’s Thesis - Development of an Automatic Open-Source Optical Fiber Polisher

We have developed a hybrid optoacoustic/ultrasonic microscope which is applied in functional neuroimaging. To illuminate our samples, laser pulses are guided from a laser into glass light-guides. The light transmission efficiency and the quality of the illumination are influenced by the quality of the fibers. To achieve a high light transmission, the fiber ends have to be polished using different lapping sheets. To simplify this process and improve the quality of the fiber ends, we want to develop a low cost, open-source polishing device which automatically processes the fibers. The project includes both the development of the device and of a standardized quality assessment procedure.
