Job Description

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton near Cambridge (UK), Monterotondo near Rome (Italy) and Barcelona (Spain).

The Centre for Molecular and Cellular Imaging (CMCI) at the EMBL supports projects on biological imaging at EMBL at different scales of biological organization, from the atom to the organism. The core mission of the Centre is to provide support in image analysis of light and electron microscopy data. Therefore the CMCI is searching for a scientist with strong background in computational image data analysis and extensive experience in applications to biological questions.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the integration of existing and development of new image processing tools to turn biological imaging of cells, tissues and organisms from qualitative descriptions into quantitative measurements and assays. He/she will make software tools accessible to a community of in-house as well as external users, making use of existing software packages where adequate. In addition, the scientist is expected to consult and train EMBL and visiting scientists on the usage of image analysis tools. He/she will be strongly involved in the organisation and teaching of in-house and international courses on basic and advanced image analysis and data management.
