Training Schools

Photonics4Life is targeting at profound training of young European PhD researchers in biophotonics by specialized training-schools in order to reach an effective, sustainable education for the future of biophotonics. Training schools on the one hand are held in cooperation with other biophotonics institutions throughout Europe, and on the other hand are specialized stand-alone P4L schools. [more]

Job Opportunities

In this section you can find available career opportunities from both inside the network and external partners ranging from Phd and Post-Doc to Professorship positions. [more]

Mobility Program

One of the major key objectives of Photonics4Life is advanced and specialized education and training for members of Photonics4Life. Researchers, and especially young researchers, interested to conduct their activity in the area of Biophotonics must have a good background in several disciplines related with this broad actual range topic. Therefore, Photonics4Life implements a specific mobility program, and allocates substantial funding to it, aimed at encouraging young researchers and PhD students to extend their knowledge by staying, for a given period, in research teams of network participants. This mobility program fosters better relationships between network researchers and increases the effectiveness of the Network.  [more]

Tutorial Materials

This section features a selection of Photonics4Life tutorial materials. They aim to give people from adjacent fields an insight into complex areas of Biophotonics and thereby help to to break down interdisciplinary barriers.

Registered members of Photonics4Life can view the full material and download pdf-files for personal use. [more]

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.
