Research Technician, EMBL, Heidelberg

The Ellenberg Lab at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, are seeking a highly motivated and excellent research technician to join the team. The Ellenberg group is part of the Cell Biology & Biophysics Unit and a multidisciplinary team consisting of biologists, chemists, physicists and computer scientists. Our overall goal is to systematically elucidate the mechanisms underlying cell division (mitosis & meiosis) and nuclear organisation (chromosomes & nuclear pores) with cutting-edge imaging technology. For that purpose, the team is developing a broad range of advanced light and electron microscopy technologies to assay the functions of the involved molecular machinery non-invasively, automate the microscopy to address as many molecular components as possible, and computationally mine image data to extract biochemical and biophysical parameters.

Closing date for applications is 13 May 2019
