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.

Academic expert in Imaging, CEPLAS Cologne, Germany

The University of Cologne is one of the largest and most research-intensive universities in Germany, offering a wide range of subjects. With its six faculties and its interfaculty centres, it offers a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines and internationally outstanding profile areas, supported by the administration with its services.

CEPLAS conducts fundamental research on complex plant traits of agronomic relevance that impact on yield and adaptation to limited resources. This knowledge underpins novel strategies for designing and breeding plants that react in a predictable way to future challenges (SMART plants).
CEPLAS is dissecting how metabolism, life history, and development are integrated to optimize plant performance. This research will be underpinned by state-of-the-art imaging techniques, including confocal microscopy, light-sheet microscopy and X-ray micro-computed tomography. We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to coordinate and develop the imaging techniques within the CEPLAS research program. The future candidate will work at the University of Cologne and at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne.
