Offer Description

How does life emerge from molecules and cells? This is the central question that motivates us. With curiosity and passion, we investigate the entire spectrum ranging from the atom to the organism. The Biozentrum of the University of Basel is one of the world's leading life sciences institutes. With 32 groups, high-end core facilities and 500 employees, we are a dynamic and international research community that has spawned many fundamental discoveries in biology and medicine as well as several Nobel Laureates. Become part of our community!
The Imaging Core Facility (IMCF) of the Biozentrum of the University of Basel is offering a position to an early-career scientist to enter the field of modern high-end light microscopy.
The candidate will support the IMCF by maintaining various state-of-the-art wide-field, confocal, spinning disk, light sheet (live cell and cleared samples), multiplexed (seqFISH), spatial transcriptomics and super-resolution (SIM, STORM/PALM) microscopes; will contribute mainly to microscope user training and to a lesser extent to image analysis; and will participate in the teaching program of the IMCF. More information about the facility, including a detailed list of equipment, can be found at https://www.biozentrum.unibas.ch/imcf/

A good knowledge of image processing is a plus.
The candidate should be rigorous, reliable, well organized and have the ambition to work in a service-oriented context. Good communication skills in English and the ability to work as a team player in a multidisciplinary environment are required.
The Biozentrum offers cutting-edge research infrastructures, a highly international environment, and excellent working conditions. Salary and benefits are according to University of Basel standards.
