The Kirchhausen Lab is seeking an energetic and highly motivated individual for an opening as Imaging Specialist to start November 2018 or earlier. The ideal candidate would have a Master's or a PhD degree in Physics, Bioengineering, Biophysics, Chemistry, Cell Biology or related field and possesses appropriate optics and/or microscopy experience. Imaging experience in live and/or single molecule visualization and proven abilities to maintain microscopes and build associated instruments is a plus.
This position requires the candidate to operate and maintain a next-generation Adaptive optics Lattice light sheet microscope (training will be provided). S/He will work with students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty doing research that requires generation of 'high end', 3D light microscopy imaging data. Experience in a programming language is a plus (MATLAB, Python or C/C++). The goal is to enable researchers primarily working on cell biology to make use of advanced imaging technologies in their projects.
Our research program integrates results from molecular biology, structural biology, contemporary cell biology, single-molecule biophysics, live-cell imaging, and chemical genetics to describe complex cellular processes at remarkably high spatial and temporal resolution and achieve single-molecule biochemistry in living cells and tissues.
Please direct anybody interested in this position to my attention.
