We are seeking an energetic and highly motivated individual for an opening as Imaging Specialist to start immediately. The ideal candidate would have a B.Sc. or Master's degree in Bioengineering, Biophysics, Chemistry or Cell Biology or be an Electrical Engineer, with imaging experience in wide field, TIRF and/or confocal microscopy and expertise in live and/or single molecule visualization. Proven abilities to maintain microscopes and build associated instruments are essential. She/he is an individual interested in working with students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty doing research that requires generation of 'high end', state-of-the-art light microscopy imaging data.

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.

Job Requirements
We have two inverted Zeiss microscopes and one upright Zeiss microscope that are coupled to spinning disc confocal heads set up for live cell 3D-time series imaging. One inverted microscope is also set up for TIRF, FRAP and photoactivation. Three additional microscopes are set up for multi-wavelength TIRF of live cells with single-molecule sensitivity. All the set ups include an environmental chamber with temperature, humidity and CO2 control. Deconvolution and image restoration is done with our own computational cluster. A RAID server is available for data storage.
