I would really appreciate if you could help me spread the word or recommend someone (deadline is July 28th). We’re looking for an imaging specialist (PhD) to work on correlative multimodal imaging with light-sheet, OPT, confocal/two-photon and support users with these techniques. A strong background with 3D fluorescence microscopy including any of the techniques mentioned, with preparation of biological samples and image analysis will be valued.
