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.

Laboratory Officer in Charge for Light Microscopy Technology Development Team, Imaging Centre, EMBL Heidelberg, Germany

We are looking for a highly motivated and interdisciplinary imaging specialist to join the Advanced Light Microscopy Technology Development Team led by Timo Zimmermann.

The team is working on the development of original methods and technologies in the fields of super-resolution microscopy and cryo-fluorescence microscopy. Developments will comprise new instrumentation and fluorescence imaging approaches. The research team is affiliated with the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit (https://www.embl.org/research/units/cell-biology-biophysics/) and located in the EMBL Imaging Centre (https://www.embl.org/about/info/imaging-centre/) at EMBL Heidelberg. Method and technology development aims ultimately at making newly developed methods also available to the wider research community as imaging services in the Imaging Centre.

Your role

As part of his research team the successful candidate will work closely with Timo Zimmermann on developing advanced light microscopy systems for specific life science applications and imaging conditions, overseeing other research projects, and managing the research laboratory. Research activities will range from novel approaches for (cryo) super-resolution microscopy to correlative light and electron microscopy, new labelling approaches as well as workflow development in sample preparation, also in close cooperation with other EMBL technology development groups.

The research team is part of the wider EMBL Imaging Centre team, an international, highly collaborative team comprising microscopy technology developers, application specialists for biological imaging and image analysis experts, as well as scientific project and service managers.
