Post-Doc in the Field of Superresolution Microscopy
IMB Mainz, Germany
- a) DNA-bound YOYO-1 in an HL-1 myocardial cell nucleus taken with SPDM (right of white line) or conventional widefield (left of white line) microscopy. The super-resolution SPDM technique reveals an organisation of DNA in the nucleus (b) that is not apparent with conventional microscopy techniques (c).
The Institute of Molecular Biology gGmbH (IMB) in Mainz (Germany) is looking for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with a background in Superresolution Microscopy, Physics and/or Optics. The successful candidate will be associated with the group for Superresolution Light Microscopy headed by Professor Christoph Cremer.
The Institute of Molecular Biology gGmbH (IMB) is an Excellence Centre for Life Science, funded by the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation, and located in Mainz, Germany. The group for Superresolution Light Microscopy focuses on the application of advanced light microscopy e.g. to study cell nuclear architecture with links to the fields of epigenetics, developmental biology and DNA repair. The group is directed by Professor Christoph Cremer, a long-standing expert in the field of advanced light microscopy and its application in nuclear genome structure research. In collaboration with Professor Cremer, the successful candidate for this Postdoc position will be responsible for applying existing custom-made superresolution light microscopes, in particular approaches of single molecule localization microscopy (SMLM) and structured illumination microscopy (SIM), and for further development of the microscope portfolio.
Deadline for applications: 30th Nov. 2017
