, by sterjung in Jobs

We are looking for a highly motivated and interdisciplinary imaging specialist to join the Advanced Light Microscopy (LM) Service Team led by Timo Zimmermann at the new EMBL Imaging Centre (EMBL IC).

The EMBL IC has recently started its operation in a new building on the EMBL Heidelberg Campus. Its mission is to make the latest imaging technologies available to a broad, international user community of researchers from academia to industry. The Advanced Light Microscopy Team works in close collaboration with the Electron Microscopy Team to offer a broad spectrum of electron and light microscopy technologies with special emphasis on correlative microscopy, covering all scales from structure determination of single protein complexes to imaging whole organisms. Dedicated service staff will provide bespoke user project support from sample preparation to image analysis.

The successful applicant will be part of an international, highly collaborative team comprising microscopy engineers, application specialists and image analysists having the mission of highest-level user service provision and technology development.

Your role

LM imaging technologies in the EMBL IC range from (cryo) super-resolution microscopy, to intravital and deep tissue imaging and light sheet microscopy to correlative light and electron microscopy.

The successful applicant will be responsible for:

  • Setting-up, testing, running, maintaining and adapting novel and custom advanced light microscopy systems and their control software for specific life science applications and imaging conditions in close collaboration with microscope developers and optical engineers within the team, from EMBL’s research groups and industrial partners.
  • Supporting users jointly with application specialists in running of advanced light microscopy equipment and development of novel image acquisition schemes and workflows.
  • Regular reporting to the team leader.
