30/10/2018: PhD position: X-ray Spectral and Phase Contrast Tomographic Reconstruction

 

ALPhANOV is a technological center specialized in lasers and photonics based in Talence in France.

ALPhANOV is leading a new project “XPulse” focused on design and development of a medical imaging system using laser based x-rays for breast cancer application. The XPulse project is a collaborative R&D project involving industrial, clinical and academic partners and is funded by the Nouvelle Aquitaine region in France and the EU for a 5 years period.
The successful candidate will assume the leading role in development of image reconstruction, image processing and image analysis algorithms with emphasis with clinical and industrial partners.


You will work on developing a new methodology for 3D reconstruction of X-ray phase contrast and spectral imaging in biological samples. You will participate in setting up the experiments and in acquiring data within the XPulse setup.


You will work on extending the 2D phase contrast and spectral imaging algorithm into a 3D algorithm. Rather than performing 3D reconstruction on phase contrast and spectral retrieved projections, your goal will be to perform directly a 3D reconstructed volume from the initial data in order to reduce processing time and to achieve better resolution and contrast.
This work will be carried out using experimental X-ray imaging setups available at ALPhANOV. This setups are based in two kind of X-ray sources: a micro-focus metal jet source and a laser based X-ray source. Multiple detector technologies can be used to acquire the images: Photon counting detector, flat panel detector…

 

Responsibilities:

  • Programming and testing of algorithms and routines for image reconstruction, image processing/segmentation and image analysis.
  • Development and implementation of innovative integrated reconstruction method for phase contrast and spectral imaging
  • Empirical evaluations of x-ray based imaging systems and techniques.
  • Interact with collaborators/Partners from other institutions and organizations.
  • Collaborate in preparation of manuscripts for publications, presentations at conferences, and for grant applications.
  • Participate in the development of protocols for pre-clinical and clinical tests.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Knowledge of the principles and techniques of x-ray imaging systems and methods.
  • Knowledge/Experience with implementing reconstruction algorithm.
  • Knowledge/Experience with GEANT4 or similar Monte Carlo modeling toolkit.

Minimum Qualifications: Master’s degree in computing, applied mathematics, engineering, medical imaging...

04/10/2018: Laser processing engineer

 

Job description:

Being part of an experimental team well known for its wide and deep know-how on laser processing, you will join the group of meso-processing which focuses on cutting-edge processes as for instance surface preparation, additive manufacturing, laser shock peening and transparent material processing, having access to one of the most diversified and numerous fleet of lasers of France (from IR to UV, from CW source to ultra-short pulse laser systems). You will be responsible for the realization of feasibility studies, development of industrial processes and high added-value productions. You will take part as well in the managing, operation and continuous development of the whole laser-processing systems, that is optical lines and related opto-mechanical systems. You will work in parallel on R&D projects developed internally as well as within national and international collaborations.

 

In charge of project management, you will:

  • Be in contact with the clients to understand and define their technical needs
  • Take part in the definition of the quote together with the commercial department
  • Oversee the development and the realization of the projects under your responsibility

Implement innovative laser processing techniques and boost the know-how of the ‘meso’ group.

 

Type of contract: Temporary or permanent according to applicant profile

 

Profile and skills:

The applicant must have:

  • MSc specialized in optics or material science with good knowledge in the field of laser/matter interaction. A Ph.D. degree in the same fields is considered a plus
  • A 3 to 5 year experience in industry and/or laser-processing field
  • Good relation skills
  • Autonomy and dynamism, together with organization and precision
  • Good inclination for experimental work and lab work
  • Good written and spoken English
  • Management experience is considered a plus
