Several specialist positions at the EMBL Imaging Centre

Heidelberg, Germany Imaging Specialists

EMBL is currently constructing the EMBL IC to make the latest imaging technologies available to a broad, international user community of researchers from academia to industry. The Advanced Light Microscopy Team will work in close collaboration with the Electron Microscopy Team to offer a broad spectrum of electron and light microscopy technologies with special emphasis on correlative microscopy, covering all scales from structure determination of single protein complexes to imaging whole organisms. Advanced and mostly pre-commercial light microscopy will include the latest (cryo-) super-resolution, light-sheet and multiphoton technologies. Dedicated service staff will provide bespoke user project support from sample preparation to image analysis.

The successful applicants will be part of an international, highly collaborative team comprising microscopy engineers, application specialists and image analysists having the mission of highest-level user service provision and technology development. Before opening of the EMBL IC the successful candidates will work on selected pilot projects and microscopy technologies integrated in EMBL’s existing research groups and facility service teams.

The positions currently open in the EMBL IC are:

  • Application Specialist in Advanced Light Microscopy (link to the position)
  • Engineer in Advanced Optical/Light Microscopy (link to the position)
  • Image Analysis Specialist in Advanced Light Microscopy (link to the position)
  • Cryo-Electron Microscopy Specialist ([link to the position]([]=0&loc[]=0[]()))
