Faculty/department Applied Sciences
Applied SciencesThe Faculty of Applied Sciences is the largest faculty of TU Delft, with around 550 scientists, a support staff of 250 and 1,800 students. The faculty conducts fundamental, application-oriented research and offers scientific education at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. The faculty is active in the fields of Life and Health Science & Technology, Nanoscience, Chemical Engineering, Radiation Science & Technology, and Applied Physics.
In the progress of science, imaging plays an important role through the invention of new measurement principles and physics-based data processing. Breakthroughs in imaging physics often lead to enabling technologies that are very relevant to our society. They form the driving forces in economic, industrial and environmental processes as well as societal services for health care. The Department of Imaging Physics (ImPhys) brings together the research on imaging systems performed by four sections: Quantitative Imaging, Optics, Charged Particle Optics, and Acoustical Wavefield Imaging.
The Delft Acoustical Wavefield Imaging group has built a reputation in high-resolution imaging via wavefield inversion of acoustic measurements in the challenging fields of medical ultrasound and geo-imaging. The group houses an exceptional transducers laboratory for designing and manufacturing ultrasonic transducers that are used to test innovative medical imaging concepts.
Job descriptionYou will lead the group’s mission to develop novel instrumentation, experimental methods, and modelling and inversion techniques to perform acoustical imaging in high-potential application fields related to medical diagnostics and therapy. The aim is to measure quantitative tissue properties at a resolution far beyond that of today’s imaging capabilities. The group collaborates closely with the Biomedical Engineering group within the medical faculty of the Erasmus Medical Centre and is active in Medical Delta.
