Postdoctoral Researchers: Neural Basis of Rodent Cognition
Howard Hughes Medical Institute
The Pachitariu Lab at HHMI Janelia is looking for postdoctoral researchers to lead projects that investigate the neural basis of cognition in rodents. The lab uses large-scale neural recordings combined with modern computational and theoretical approaches.
We are seeking a Coordinator of Euro-BioImaging’s Data Services to join the Bio-Hub team at the EMBL in Heidelberg. The successful candidate will work for the Euro-BioImaging Hub, and coordinate the provision of image data services to as well as developing the services further in close collaboration with Euro-BioImaging stakeholders (Euro-BioImaging users, Nodes’ staff, imaging communities, technology developers, industry, funders, related EU initiatives etc.)
This is an exciting leadership opportunity to form the foundation senior management team as full-time employees to further build, develop and coordinate the recently established Euro-BioImaging ERIC. The mission of this new research infrastructure is to provide the European research community, collaborative partners and industry with world class imaging services that bridge biological and biomedical imaging and enable innovative and world-class research. Whatever the scale of imaging, Euro-BioImaging provides the tools and support to explore and answer research questions.
The Directorate of Euro-BioImaging is composed of the Director General, the Section Director of the Med-Hub and the Section Director of the Bio-Hub. The role of the Directorate is to both provide advice to, and implement the decisions of, the Euro- BioImaging Board. In addition, the Directorate will be responsible for: the day-to-day management of the Organisation, promoting the research infrastructure nationally and internationally, ensuring the coordinated provision of access, services and training to state- of-the-art imaging technologies for all life scientists in Europe and beyond and finally, to foster liaison and cooperation across the broad bioimaging communities.
The Technical Assistant assists the Keck Facility manager in core facility operations including training of users (grad students, post docs, faculty and research staff), maintenance and troubleshooting of equipment and affiliated software and peripherals, creating accounts, inventory and ordering of supplies, and basic image analysis assistance. The Technical Assistant will perform all duties in accordance with Whitehead Institute's behavioral standards, mission, values, and vision.
Full time Research Support Specialist (Microscopy and Image Analysis)
Bio-Imaging Resource Center at The Rockefeller University
The Research Support Specialist will be advising and training users in all areas of optical microscopy, including microscope set-up, experimental design, sample preparation and data evaluation, also troubleshooting, microscope maintenance and miscellaneous laboratory maintenance.
Center for Open Science (COS) | Charlottesville, VA
Each of COS’s Product Owners manage OSF.io, a collaborative project management tool for researchers. COS’s product suite is comprised of six product interfaces (OSF.io, Preprints, Registries, Institutions, Collections, Meetings) that enable specific phases in the research lifecycle. With support from the broader Product team, this vital member of the product team will understand the use cases and workflows of the products; manage product feedback of features, improvements, and bugs in the product backlog; work with new communities to build strong relationships; and prepare to launch new branded interfaces.
CZI Science is hiring two computational biology positions. The Science Officer will determine priorities in Computational Biology across scientific areas relevant to CZI’s mission, which currently include single-cell biology, microscopy and medical imaging, metagenomics, and neurodegeneration. You will work laterally across these programs to identify computational and quantitative needs, and to implement the solutions that make them more than the sum of their parts. You will help design, review, and oversee grant-making programs with other Science Officers, providing a computational perspective based on your knowledge of modern computational and statistical methods, and an understanding of the underlying scientific areas. You will interact with external scientists, who may be grantees or collaborators, to advance program goals. In addition, you will lead and recruit a small team of computational biologists who are deeply embedded in specific program areas, provide technical leadership to them, and guide them in their hands-on work. Other, related positions are also available.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics
We are now seeking a highly motivated and service-oriented light microscopy imaging specialist at an early career stage, who shall become part of the LMF team supporting imaging projects in the fields of cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, genetics, neurobiology, biochemistry and biophysics.
The position is available immediately. The initial contract is for 2 years with the possibility to extend for another 3 - 4 years. Salary and social benefits will be in accordance with the regulations of the German TVöD Bund (the salary agreement for public service employees). For inquiries, please contact the leader of the LMF MPI-CBG, Dr. Jan Peychl via email: peychlmpi-cbg.de.
The Advanced Microscopy Fellows at Harvard Medical School learn quantitative microscopy techniques including confocal, TIRF, FRET, FRAP, photo-activation, single-molecule imaging, light sheet and super-resolution microscopy, and key skills needed to manage a large, heavily-used core facility. Fellows learn to train core facility users to select and apply the appropriate techniques, using a wide range of biological specimens and experimental approaches. Fellows are also encouraged to identify scholarly projects that match their interests, such as: organizing and teaching microscopy lectures and workshops; organizing microscopy discussion groups/journal clubs; troubleshooting equipment problems; developing protocols for testing equipment performance; designing and/or implementing novel or custom imaging techniques. The fellows are mentored by Jennifer Waters.
