Gubra is looking for a neuroscientist to join our rapidly growing 3D Imaging department. Using whole organ immunolabelling and light sheet microscopy we are working with biotech and pharma to develop the drugs of the future. Our work is primarily focused on CNS disorders and metabolic diseases, but we are also continuously exploring new indications in other disease areas. If you have a background in neuroscience and imaging as well as a desire to apply this knowledge to drug development, then here is your chance to join a fast-growing international team and work at the forefront of scientific discoveries with cutting-edge technology.
Gubra is an ambitious biotech company striving for excellence at all levels. We focus on doing things efficiently with high quality and in new innovative ways, to reach the results we aim for.

In addition, Gubra act and inspire others to fight against the ongoing climate and biodiversity crises.
The 3D imaging department is focused on high-throughput light sheet imaging of diverse cleared tissue samples and whole rodent organs. We perform contract research with external customers and support our internal target and drug discovery programs. Continuous scientific development helps us to establish new methods for the characterization of the efficiency and mode of action of pharmaceuticals.
You have recently graduated with a PhD degree in natural or biomedical science, have excellent understanding of brain anatomy, some background in microscopy (i.e. light sheet, confocal, etc.) and experience in working in laboratory. You are detail oriented, have very good scientific communication skills and enjoy teamwork to tackle challenging projects in a fast-paced environment.
Your tasks as 3D Imaging Scientist include:
- Plan and run 3D Imaging studies with particular focus on the brain, but also on other organs and tissue types.
