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.

, by sterjung in Jobs

The emergence of new optical technologies combined with advanced computational and molecular tools have led to major advances of our understanding of how the circuitry and dynamics of neuronal populations give rise to brain functions and behavior. Our lab has been focused on the development and application of advanced optical imaging technologies to advance neuroscience. Over the last years, we have developed a portfolio of optical technologies that allow for large-scale and whole-brain optical recording and manipulation of neuroactivity at high spatiotemporal resolution across model systems with an emphasis on development of imaging tools for highly scattering brain tissues. In our most recent imaging technology, we have demonstrated that up to 1 million neurons distributed across different depths of both hemispheres of the mouse cortex can be recorded at single cell resolution.
How would you push microscopy and imaging technologies further, and which fundamental questions in neuroscience would you be able to uniquely address with such capabilities?
We are welcoming applications from creative, highly motivated, and ambitious candidates interested in pursuing projects based on their own ideas or within existing lines of work in the lab in either of the above areas.

Positions
Depending on candidates’ background, experience, and interest, positions are available in one or more of the following projects:

  • Development of new high-speed optical methods for large scale recording of neuroactivity
  • Imaging through scattering media
  • Multi-regional representation and processing of information across the mammalian cortex
  • Applications of new conceptual ideas from quantum optics and ultrafast optics to bio-imaging and biology
