The Department of Biology at UNC-Chapel Hill Biology is searching for a creative and energetic person to direct the Bio-Imaging core located in the Genome Sciences Building. This will be at the rank of Assistant Research Professor.
This person will work with a dynamic group of biologists studying diverse aspects of cell, molecular, & developmental biology. They will maintain & expand our current state-of-the-art equipment, including Zeiss 880 confocal with the Airyscan module, a Zeiss 770 confocal, a Nikon SIM/STORM scope, and an Imaris work station. They will train new users and collaborate with groups to enhance their science through effective imaging. They will also participate in the teaching program, helping run an imaging course for undergrads and grad students.
The candidate must have a PhD (or equivalent) in biomedical sciences or other related field. They must have postdoctoral training in a relevant discipline and previous experience with advanced light microscopy imaging systems. They should have strong experience in state-of-the-art microscopy techniques, as well as applied knowledge of imaging software programs. We’re looking for someone excited to work in a collaborative environment, with a track record of published work. Prior experience in a service-oriented position is a plus but not essential.
