Type: Postdoc

The position may be filled at the postdoctoral level or, depending on qualifications and experience, at the group leader / management level as Head of the Technology Development Studio (‘TDS’), MPI-CBG’s state-of-the-art automated microscopy and screening environment for image-based quantitation.

Main tasks and responsibilities:
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a strong background in automated quantitative microscopy, 3D image acquisition and image analysis. The successful candidate will design and implement quantitative imaging and image analysis workflows for imaging 3D samples, mostly organoids or spheroids derived from living cellular systems. The main workhorses available at MPI-CBG for quantitative imaging are automated microscopes and most commercial microscopy setups are available either in the TDS itself or in the Light Microscopy Facility, which hosts about 25 advanced imaging platforms. Ideally, the successful candidate will be well versed in the use of the KNIME environment for image analysis although expertise in any relevant image analysis software environment will be considered an important strength.
