ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Centers for Stem Cell Biology (DanStem) and Protein Research (CPR) at the University of Copenhagen are jointly seeking applications for the position of an
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology (DanStem) addresses basic research questions in stem cell and developmental biology and has activities focused on the translation of promising basic research results into new strategies and targets for the development of new therapies for cancer and chronic diseases such as diabetes and liver failure. Learn more about DanStem at https://danstem.ku.dk/.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) promotes basic and applied research on proteins of medical relevance. The research scope spans in silico biology, proteomics, biochemistry and cell biology, and the unifying theme is the identification and functional exploration of proteins and protein pathways involved in disease mechanisms. Learn more about CPR at www.cpr.ku.dk.
Both DanStem and CPR are vibrant, internationally diverse, ambitious research centers, housing modern laboratories with state-of-the-art facilities located in close proximity to one another at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The setting is ideally suited for seamless exchange of expertise, material and lively scientific communication.
Advanced light microscopy is a key technology at DanStem and CPR. The Centers host approximately 15 research groups with over 50 users (Master and PhD students, Postdocs, Assistant and Associate Professors). Applications in cellular imaging include a variety of model systems (cell lines, 3D cell cultures, tissues, and organisms) and microscopy techniques (wide-field, confocal, high-throughput, light-sheet, FCS, FRAP, live-cell imaging). User support for microscopy and image analysis is provided by dedicated technology platforms at the Centers.
We are now seeking a highly motivated and qualified image analysis specialist to work within the Imaging Research Platform at DanStem and the Protein Imaging Facility within CPR, alongside the light microscopy specialists at both platforms.
