Researcher in advanced light microscopy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
The Centre for Cellular Imaging (CCI)is now looking for an experienced Researcher in advanced light microscopy. The purpose of this post is to facilitate the development of novel imaging and analysis methods in close collaboration with PI’s to apply these methods to their specific research questions. The main tasks for the post holder will include advice in sample preparation, imaging, training, maintenance and operations in advanced light microscopy
The CCI in operation since 2003, is a national research infrastructure and one of the leading academic imaging facilities in Sweden providing expertise and access to advanced microscopy to the research community, both locally and at other Swedish universities and abroad (https://www.gu.se/en/core-facilities/centre-for-cellular-imaging). The CCI is located at the University of Gothenburg Core Facilities, and is also part of the National Microscopy Infrastructure (https://nmisweden.se/), the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab, scilifelab.se) and the Euro-BioImaging-ERIC (https://www.eurobioimaging.eu/). The CCI offers high-end imaging techniques for researchers in the various fields of life science, but also chemistry, physics, material science. The equipment includes several laser scanning (confocal and multiphoton) and conventional light microscopes, super-resolution microscopes, MALDI imaging mass spectrometry as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopes. We have also a comprehensive suite of electron microscopy sample preparation labs and equipment for room temperature, microwave and cryoEM preparation, including advanced ultramicrotomy capability. The scientific staff at the CCI assists researchers in the experimental designing and planning of microscopy experiments and provides the in-depth training for the operation of the microscopes and for specific imaging techniques. Additionally, support is provided in the processing, rendering and analysis of the acquired datasets and computational infrastructure for handling big image data. The CCI team has broad interactions with the wider microscopy community and has wide-ranging collaborations with both academic and industrial partners.
