Microscopy expert for the development of optical apparatuses for biological imaging, LENS Florence, Italy
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral profile to join the biophotonics group of Prof. Francesco Saverio Pavone at the European Laboratory for Non-linear Spectroscopy in Sesto Fiorentino, Florence, Italy.
We are seeking an optical scientist with experience in designing advanced custom-made
microscopes, ideally light-sheet microscopes, to build a new high-throughput light-sheet
microscope for high-resolution mapping of cleared human brain samples and to further develop an existing apparatus for the optogenetic stimulation of the larval zebrafish brain.
In detail, he/she will work on the design and implementation of the optical system and of the electronics needed for microscope operation. The candidate will also be in charge of acquiring data, and of presenting results through scientific papers and conferences.
A PhD degree with a background in Physics/Optics/Engineering/Biology is required. Fluency in English, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work in a multidisciplinary international environment are required. Finally, previous research experience in neuroscience is appreciated.
