British Heart Foundation Project: “Development and optimisation of synchronised 3D in-vivo imaging of the embryonic and juvenile zebrafish heart"
2.5 year Research assistant/associate, University of Glasgow (UK). Basic salary £27,057 to £37,394 /year.
The successful candidate will develop and refine novel optical and computational techniques for imaging into living, moving tissue, building on earlier pilot work that has demonstrated the ability to obtain computationally “frozen” 3D images of the living, beating heart. The project will also involve collaborating with biological researchers (led by Dr Martin Denvir at the BHF Centre of Research Excellence, University of Edinburgh) to apply these techniques to imaging of the beating zebrafish heart. This project represents an opportunity for a suitably qualified optics researcher to play a leading role in a cross-disciplinary optics/instrumentation project with immediate impact on cardiovascular research
