Develop new ways of imaging cells and tissues by electrical impedance tomography using imec’s high density electrode arrays

What you will do

Electrical impedance tomography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique. It is typically used to discriminate cells and tissues and has applications such as skin or breast cancer, or brain tissue imaging. The density of the electrodes used in these applications is typically low, and the scanned volume is large. This setting hampers good resolution of the imaged structures. For in situ applications such as inside the human body, and to detect subtle differences between cellular (sub)structures, higher density electrode configurations are needed. Imaging near surfaces of chips such as brain probes or other implants could for example be used for imaging of lesions or tumors, or to characterize tissue in general. Besides novel sensors/actuators also innovative reconstruction algorithms need to be developed.

In this postdoc, you will explore how to actuate and reconstruct electrical fields by imec’s high density microelectrode array chips. Further, your work will look at applying the tissue contrast measurement in relevant application such as brain organoid imaging and tumor discrimination. You will be embedded in the imec Life Sciences team and strongly interact with image reconstruction algorithm development teams at the University of Antwerp.

What we do for you

We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.

We are proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.

We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive scholarship.

Who you are

You have a PhD degree in electrical/electronic engineering or equal with strong multiphysics modeling background. Experience with biological tissues is a plus.

This postdoctoral position is funded by imec through KU Leuven. Because of the specific financing statute which targets international mobility for postdocs, only candidates who did not stay or work/study in Belgium for more than 24 months in the past 3 years can be considered for the position (short stays such as holiday, participation in conferences, etc. are not taken into account).
