A PhD Position is available in the Smart Optics Group lead by Professor M. Verhaegen. The research focuses on the use of advanced identification and data driven control methodologies for high resolution imaging for developing a compact optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. In existing OCT systems the necessary lateral resolution for cellular imaging of biological tissue is achieved by the application of standard adaptive optics systems. The major drawback of these bulky systems is cost.
-We are looking for a candidate with a solid interest and background in advanced control engineering method design and/or Image processing with a clear biomedical interest. -The candidate should have an MSc degree in Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, or equivalent, with a strong background in numerical algorithms for system identification and control targeted towards image processing. -Experience with parallel or multi core processing is an advantage.
