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.

PhD Student in Advanced Optical Microscopy Development, Aalen University, Germany

The Group of Prof. Dr. Walter at the Centre of Optical Technologies (ZOT) aims at developing novel correlative microscopy solutions to facilitate imaging across scales in life sciences – in close collaborations with regional industrial partners. We plan to combine advanced fluorescence microscopy with electron microscopy to visualize molecules within their subcellular context at high resolution using Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM). Specifically, we envision a unique advanced super-resolution and volume CLEM workflow under cryo-conditions (Correlative Cryo-Super-Resolution Light and Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscopy) that overcomes the current limitations, pushes correlative microscopy further and allows us, together with our collaboration partners, to tackle specific biomedical research questions that could not be answered before due to the lack of accessible solutions. This is a highly interdisciplinary project between physics, engineering, optics, life and computer sciences, and we are looking for a PhD Student in Advanced Optical Microscopy Development.
