1. PhD degree in the field of Optics, Physics, Data Sciences or Biomedical Engineering (obtained not later than 7 years before this call).

2. Expertise in optical design of microscopes and interferometers. Very good experimental skills.

3. Very good knowledge of Matlab/Python/LabView environments.

4. Outstanding track record, documented unique optonumerical skills. Expertise in the field of coherent optical measurement methods, microscopy and complex amplitude retrieval.

5. Fluent English.

6. Strong motivation and passion for scientific work both independently and as a part of a team in an interdisciplinary environment, with the ability to creatively propose solutions to problems at hand, pay close attention to detail and to meet deadlines.

7. Excellent soft skills.

8. Experience in dissemination of research results to the scientific community, writing grant proposals and establishing international cooperation.

The project aims at investigating the limits of the quantitative phase imaging, pushing them via novel phase demodulation algorithm, and proposing new applications for biomedical imaging of live specimen. Postdoctoral Researcher will be responsible for

• developing and optimizing experimental setup (WUTscope 2.0) of the grating shearing interference microscope aided by coherence-engineered light source and novel numerical reconstruction framework;

• implementing data acquisition and modifying interferogram analysis procedures, • testing various biological objects in close cooperation with project Partners using the developed software and hardware,

• developing 3D printed mobile WUTscope 2.0 platform,

• testing and optimizing novel 2D fast adaptive local iterative filtering method for local frequency-guided interferogram analysis enabling significantly increased SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) and SBP (space-bandwidth product) of quantitative phase reconstruction; studying Bedrosian theorem violation.

A successful dissemination of results to the scientific community is expected. Moreover, co-supervising PhD students and Master students will be required. Establishing and expanding international cooperation within the project will be most welcome.
