Ph.D. Fellowship in Wide-Field Fluorescence Lifetime Microscopy


Ph.D. Fellow in Bioengineering and Robotics, Curriculum Bionanotechnologies

Research Area:

Bioengineering, Robotics, Bionanotechnologies, Optical Microscopy, Machine Learning


Università degli Studi di Genova, Genova, Italy


  • Master’s degree or equivalent in Engineering, Physics, or related disciplines.
  • Proficiency in spoken and written English.
  • Ability and motivation to work both independently and collaboratively in an interdisciplinary team.
  • Coding skills, particularly in Python, are highly desirable.
  • Experience in microscopy or control systems will be considered a plus.

Job Description:

The selected Ph.D. candidate will be an integral part of a mission to design and develop state-of-the-art microscopes and analytical tools. The project focuses on fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM), a cutting-edge technique combining conventional fluorescence intensity measurements with nanosecond-scale temporal dynamics. The goal is to implement a wide-field FLIM system with high temporal resolution, integrating innovative optical light-sheet architecture with novel large pixellated detectors featuring time-resolved capabilities. This position offers a unique opportunity to work at the intersection of photonics technologies, spectroscopy techniques, and machine learning approaches, collaborating closely with biologists to refine these tools for new biological insights.
