Microscopy specialist, CRG Barcelona, Spain

, by sterjung in Jobs

Microscopy Specialist
in the Intracellular Self-Organization Group

The Institute
The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is an international biomedical research institute of excellence, based in Barcelona, Spain, with more than 400 scientists from 44 countries. The CRG shares principles of an interdisciplinary, motivated and creative scientific team that is supported by high-end and innovative technologies and a flexible and efficient administration.

The Role
Advanced microscopy imaging plays a central role in our research and the successful candidate will be a key lab member being involved in several projects. He or she will be responsible for developing light microscopy methods (e.g. STORM, iSCAT, optical trapping) and develop image and data analysis tools in the framework of an ERC Synergy project. The selected candidate will work together with biochemists and biophysicists, contributing specialized microscopy expertise and training. The research will address fundamental questions about the spatio-temporal organization of the cytoskeleton in cells and reconstituted systems, with a special emphasis on understanding spindle assembly and function.

About the Team
The Intracellular Self-Organization Group is interested in elucidating the design principles of self-organizing intracellular structures. The focus is on understanding the function of the cytoskeleton. The group is led by Thomas Surrey, an expert of microtubule cytoskeleton biochemistry and biophysics. Quantitative microscopy imaging combined with quantitative image and data analysis are important methods in the lab.
