Postdoc in Microscopy, Optics and Imaging, ZMBH Heidelberg, Germany

Position description:

Our laboratory works at the interface of physics, informatics and cell biology, we develop new methods and microscopy instrumentation and we employ these to answer important biological questions.

We are looking for a postdoc with strong background and experience in optics, laser and microscopy instrumentation/design/construction, with a passion to engage in collaborative projects. Additional experience in electronics, computing, CCD camera technology or microfluidics would be a plus, but we also offer the possibility to acquire complementary knowledge with the help of our collaborators. Knowledge in biology is not required.

The candidate will be responsible for the development of a new and innovative light-sheet based microscope that will be central for the conductance of a funded project.

Start of position: open (as soon as possible)
