Postdoctoral position on microscopy at the Bioengineering in Reproductive Health Research Group


Application Deadline: 31/01/2021

The Bioengineering in reproductive health group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) offers a Postdoctoral position for an optics physicist or engineer with experience in advance microcopy and image analysis. The project involves using label-free imaging for the study of human embryos.

This project aims to address the diagnostic limitations in IVF clinics and develop an objective, quantitative imaging technology capable to discriminate competent embryos. The method will be based on label-free microscopy. The biological data will be extracted from microscopy measurements of the embryos, via different image processing and statistical correlation procedures. Biological samples are naturally auto-fluorescent due to the presence of different molecules which are crucial for the embryonic development. The goal of this project is to use the endogenous signals from the embryo in a non-invasive way to extract meaningful biological information. The results of this project will be the basis for the creation of a biotech spin-off.

Our laboratory is a multidisciplinary environment where biologists, physicists, clinicians and business developers synergize to create a unique environment shaped by science and entrepreneurship. Due to the high translational component of our research, we have established collaboration contracts with the pharma industry, hospitals and venture capital to bring our technology to the clinics and the market
