We currently have an open ESR position at Lambert Instruments

Reference: ESR5-NL

A PhD position is available at Lambert Instruments, Groningen, The Netherlands

Project title: Autonomous High-Throughput accurate FLIM with subcellular resolution
Development and optimization of automated data mining from multi-well microscopy plates.
The goal is to improve on current intensity-based methods for detection of the presence of biological phenomena in microscopic images by applying deep-learning for morphological analysis in detection and classification. Additional discriminating dimensions are created by integrating Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM) measurements into the dataset. The end point is a fully automated processing workflow to detect subtle changes in organelle morphology. The research involves improvement of a FLIM protocol for speed and accuracy, optimize modulation and illumination parameters, develop noise reduction algorithms. By using active feedback loops for real-time measurement adjustment, the harvest of target patterns will be optimized using reinforcement learning or other control algorithms for digital microscopes.

Location: Groningen, The Netherlands
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. L.R.B. Schomaker (; Mr. J. Wehmeijer (
