ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, a centre based in Castelldefels (Barcelona, Spain), devoted to research and education of the optical and photonic sciences at the highest international level, is offering a position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young optical engineer (or equivalent) who wishes to enhance his/her career in a friendly and stimulating environment.
The successful candidate will be assigned to ICFO’s Research Technical Support Area reporting to the ICFO Advisor of Super-resolution Light Microscopy & Nanoscopy Facility (SLN).
The SLN focuses on performing continuous R&D in most of the advanced super resolution light microscopy techniques, providing access and training to all types of users in the forefront of microscopy for the most demanding biomedical applications.
The candidate will be involved in a multidisciplinary environment working closely with biomedical researchers. The candidate will attain an extensive knowledge in all the microscopy techniques available in the lab and will work in different collaborative projects where these techniques apply to different fields of life sciences. Moreover, he/she will also play a key role in operating and maintaining and even adapting the microscopes that integrate the SLN Lab. Specific tasks such as: particular sample preparation, image acquisition and image analysis will be routine activities
of the candidate. This adding up to direct involvement in the experimental process design of specific projects.
The formal application should be submitted by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. E-mail submissions must include the mailing label “SLN” and your last name printed before the label.
Suitable candidates are requested to submit:
- Presentation letter with a declaration of interest,
- Curriculum Vitae, including full address, a contact phone number and e-mail address.
The call will remain open until suitable candidate is identified.

XXIV. International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy
Over the last years optical technologies have become a vital tool for innovating clinical diagnostics and are thus opening markets for photonics. Technologies like second harmonic generation or two-photon microscopy give new insights into abnormal changes in human morphology and can thereby often identify diseases better than techniques that don’t employ light.

Leaders and experts will introduce various modalities of nonlinear optical microscopy and their integration on a single platform. Cutting-edge developments and applications will be shown by lectures on May 23 at Purdue University. Hands-on training will be provided on May 24 to assist the trainees in building or using different modalities of nonlinear optical microscopy. As an optional opportunity, the trainees can test their own samples on the morning of May 25. A poster session will be arranged for participants to exchange their own research. [more]
