Hi all, I hope the science and scopes are treating you well.
We have a position opening for an advanced microscopy and data analysis specialist in Emory’s Integrated Cellular Imaging (ICI) core facility. The role is centered around cutting-edge quantitative microscopy, supporting data acquisition on our 3i Lattice Light Sheet Microscope (LLSM) and Abberior Facility Line 3D STED & TCSPC systems, coupled with the subsequent data analyses. The ICI is one of the largest microscopy core facilities in the southeastern region with 19 microscopes and 4 analysis workstations across 4 locations on Emory’s main campus (http://www.cores.emory.edu/ici/ ). We have multiple standard options such as widefield, confocal, and live cell spinning disk, together with advanced techniques including multiphoton, super-res, and light sheet microscopy. We are looking for a dedicated person passionate about imaging and helping life sciences researchers get the most out of today’s cutting-edge microscopes and the ever-complicated data sets.
In addition to working with our light sheet and super-resolution microscopes (including advising and assisting with acquisitions), the position requires training/assisting researchers on data analysis/processing using tools such as Fiji, CellProfiler, Imaris, MATLAB, Python, etc. Depending on interest and expertise there may also be threads of cloud computing/data logistics, deep learning, media, and graphics.
We’re looking for a bachelors or masters level applicant with a passion for learning, helping, and attention to detail. Ideal candidates should have experience with (bio-)image analysis, STED/light-sheet microscopy experience, and a background that overlaps in one or more of the following subject areas: physics, optics, engineering, programming, or computer science. While experience with fluorescence microscopy and biology is preferred, it’s not explicitly required, just an interest in learning the underlying principles of modern microscopy data.
