We are looking for an Imaging Technology Specialist to join the Mesoscopic Imaging Facility at the newly established EMBL site in Barcelona.
The successful candidate will participate in the development of innovative technologies that will support the work of the unit. This will involve implementation of novel imaging platforms based on light-sheet microscopy and optical projection tomography; however, alternative techniques suitable for mesoscopic biological imaging may be introduced in the future. The position will involve the design, implementation and maintenance of optical mesoscopic imaging instrumentation that will complement and improve the existing technologies in the Facility, and support the research goals of EMBL-Barcelona scientists and the larger biomedical community. Duties are (in cooperation with the Facility staff):
Design of mesoscopic imaging instrumentation;
Implementation of the hardware necessary to achieve the Facility’s imaging goals;
Coding of control software necessary to run the optical instrumentation and implement the experiments required by Facility users.
Closing date: 17 May 2022
Contract duration: 3 years (renewable)
Grading: 4, 5 or 6; depending on qualifications and experience
