Microscopy facility job in Germany :)

The Heinrich Pette Institute – Leibniz Institute for Experimental Virology in Hamburg, Germany, is committed to research on the biology of different human viruses as well as the pathogenesis of viral diseases and offers the opportunity to perform cutting-edge research in a world-class research environment with excellent facilities.

The technology platform “Microscopy and Image Analysis” (TP MIA) is part of the department “Structural Cell Biology of Viruses” and the central imaging unit at the HPI. The TP offers state-of-the-art light and electron microscopy methods (LM and EM) and correlative techniques for HPI scientists and external cooperation partners. TP MIA serves also as Imaging center of the Leibniz Center Infection (LCI). The main tasks of the TP MIA are consulting, training and support of microscopy users as well as assistance in data analysis and quality assessment of the scientific knowledge gained from the data. To ensure efficient operation of the imaging equipment, appropriate technical support and maintenance of the TP instruments as well as of the microscopes in other departments is also provided. As a research-oriented unit, the TP MIA develops and adapts preparation and imaging techniques tailored to the scientific questions of the users. It is specialized in integrative methods and workflows for the correlation of multimodal images over a wide range of complexity.

The primary responsibility of the Head of light microscopy will be to ensure the day to day running of all light microscopes in the facility and associated workflows and furthermore the scientific support and training of the users in the various imaging systems. In addition, users have to be advised on the methodology best suited to their specific biological problem and supported in image data analysis. These duties should be performed in close cooperation and coordination with the head of electron microscopy within the TP MIA. Involvement in primary research projects and technology developments is desired.

We are searching for exceptional, highly motivated candidates holding a PhD degree in physics, biology or related disciplines with sound knowledge and experience in light microscopy techniques and their technical basics. Solid knowledge in image processing and data management are essential. Ideal is experience in programming and use of evaluation software. A good basic understanding of cell biology and experience in infection biology and correlative microscopy methods are desirable, as well as experience in running a light microscopy facility. Organizational talent, interpersonal skills, negotiation skills with industrial partners, fluent (oral and verbal) English language skills and a service-oriented attitude are prerequisites.

We offer the opportunity to perform and support cutting-edge research in an extremely stimulating work environment equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Microscopy job in Manchester

Senior Experimental Officer (Bioimaging / Image Analysis) The University of Manchester, UK

The University of Manchester Bioimaging Core Facility is recruiting an image processing/analysis Senior Experimental Officer. This position is initially for 2 years, but with a view to becoming a permanent position. Manchester is a great place to live and work and you’ll be part of a team supporting over 20 microscope systems and 200 PIs. We run a mix of commercial, open source and bespoke software and the successful candidate would be responsible for developing, applying and teaching these tools to the Facility users. You don’t need to be from an academic background, we’d be very keen to recruit someone currently working within the commercial side of image analysis and a PhD is not essential – we’re looking for the right person not the right qualifications.

Due to the demand for advanced image processing and data analysis, a new position has been created to support the users of the Bioimaging Facility in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.

You will work as part of the Bioimaging team, led by Dr Peter March, but you will be responsible for developing the image processing capabilities of the Facility. Combining both commercial packages and your own bespoke scripted solutions you will provide analysis pipelines to support users who have acquired large multi-dimensional datasets using the Bioimaging Facility microscopes. You will have multiple projects to manage simultaneously and so excellent project management skills are also required.

You will have completed a PhD in science, mathematics, computer science or a relevant discipline, or equivalent experience. A knowledge of cell biology is not essential, but you must have proven experience in developing analysis pipelines and the ability to write custom scripts. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are also required.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.

Please note that we are unable to respond to enquiries, accept CVs or applications from Recruitment Agencies.
