Light sheet microscopy and computational image analysis of early animal morphogenesis
Supervisors: Pierre-François Lenne & Thomas Lecuit
We are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to develop and apply high resolution light sheet microscopy in order to image cytoskeletal networks and adhesion complexes in developing embryos (e.g. Drosophila). We have recently developed a light sheet microscope for fast 3D imaging and we aim at including a new illumination scheme to achieve higher resolution and single molecule detection. The recruited postdoc will also develop new image analysis tools to analyze the generated high resolution data.
The candidates should have experience in computational image analysis and/or optical engineering (including software engineering for machine control).
The postdoctoral fellowship is offered for a period of two years.
