The Rockefeller University's Bio-Imaging Resource Center (BIRC) is seeking an Optical Engineer to contribute to the development of a new, integrated platform for the acquisition and analysis of data from pre-commercial light-sheet instruments for microscopy on living organisms and cells. The Optical Engineer will work in close collaboration with optical microscopy and image analysis staff, biologists, physicists, bioinformaticians, computer scientists, and precision instrumentation fabrication experts in an international and interdisciplinary environment. Responsibilities include maintaining and modifying pre-commercial light sheet microscopes as required and training researchers in their use. As a staff member in the BIRC, you will liaise between the research scientists, the existing microscopy and image analysis staff, and a new advanced image analyst who will implement deep learning-based approaches to analyze the light-sheet data. The instruments will be built in a dedicated new laboratory space housed on bedrock underneath the existing BIRC laboratory. Light sheet systems to be established will include pre-commercial systems such as the Lattice Light Sheet and MOSAIC systems, using designs kindly provided by the Janelia Research Campus. Additional responsibilities include implementing other pre-commercial systems in due course, as well as executing custom modifications of other BIRC microscopes as required. The position is funded initially by a five-year Beckman Foundation grant to the Rockefeller University.
