Research Fellow in Biophotonics

School of Physics & Astronomy,
Salary: £30,424 per annum, pro rata,
Start Date: 1 September 2013, or as soon as possible thereafter,
Fixed Term: 8 months

A postdoctoral position for eight months is available for collaborative work between the Schools of Physics & Astronomy and Medicine at the University of St Andrews. The post is geared towards clinical translation of methods of Raman Spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography. The project in particular will require the candidate to have a very good optics knowledge/physics background and perform biological cell culture, which includes studies at Ninewells hospital Dundee. Previous experience in Raman spectroscopy and multivariate methods is essential.

Informal enquiries (NOT full applications) may be addressed to: Professor Kishan Dholakia, School of Physics and Astronomy, tel: 01334 463184, email

The start date for this post is 1 September 2013, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
