In the framework of research collaborations with industry and research institutes, we have a vacant position for a post-doctoral researcher within the PProGRess team, member of the UGent expertise Centre for X-ray Tomography ( In this research project we aim to characterize complex mineral compositions both chemically and structurally in 3D. Currently, chemical characterization in 3D remains an unsolved problem and currently requires the use of several imaging and characterization techniques as well as tools for correlative microscopy and appropriate image processing and image analyses. Techniques that are inhouse available are amongst others lab-based X-ray CT imaging, hyperspectral imaging, XRF-CT, FEG-SEM, FIB-SEM and SEM-EDX. Some of those techniques remain new or even under developed in the field of mineral characterization. Means to implement these techniques into a workable workflow as well as exploring the potential to extract qualitative and quantitative information from this data need to be further developed and validated. You will be responsible for the data acquisition (in close collaboration with the PProGRess-UGCT team) and the exploration of techniques such as hyperspectral imaging. You will combine new imaging techniques for mineralogical research and the development of the tools and workflows for the data analysis. You might also have the daily supervision of PhD and master thesis students, and will be in close contact with all collaborators of this research project. We offer an employment contract of minimum 1 year, starting January 2020 at the earliest, depending on the availability of the successful candidate. More info on living in Ghent can be found on:
