About the ELMI

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.

Engineer position “Quantitative analysis of single molecule localization data”, IINS Bordeaux, France

The Quantitative Imaging of the Cell team @ Interdisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience (IINS) is seeking to recruit a motivated software Engineer to develop quantitative analysis tools for high content analysis of single molecule localization microscopy data, building on existing acquisition and analysis techniques [1, 2]. The expected missions are:

  1. to develop an analysis platform to characterize fluorophore photophysics from the single molecule localization data, under various experimental conditions;
  2. to help performing and optimizing the screening using the HCS-SMLM platform developed in the team.

This interdisciplinary project, which aims at designing new photo-convertible fluorescent proteins for super-resolution microscopy, will be conducted in close collaboration with the teams of Daniel Choquet at IINS, Dominique Bourgeois at IBS in Grenoble, and the Bordeaux Imaging Center.


Applicants are expected to have a strong background in programming (C/C++, .NET, Python). Knowledge in fundamentals of microscopy and single-molecule based super-resolution methods is recommended. The candidate needs to be motivated to be trained, if necessary, on protein labelling and advanced microscopy. Excellent communication skills, openness, and ability to collaborate in an interdisciplinary environment is required.
