The newly established Advanced Light Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility (ALIS) at Duke University (http://alis.duke.edu) is accepting applications for a Research Scientist position. The facility operates and develops cutting-edge instrumentation, which currently includes a lattice light-sheet microscope, a deep-tissue serial sectioning microscope, and a multimodal pump-probe microscope. The responsibilities of the Research Scientist includes but is not limited to instrument operation, scheduling, maintenance, user training, and advising users on image and data analyses tasks. Furthermore, the scientist works with the facility director and research groups to develop new and adapt existing instruments to advance their capabilities. The scientist will also closely interact with other imaging cores (especially the Light Microscopy Core Facility).
The successful candidate needs to have a masters or doctoral degree in an optics-related field (such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or Engineering). Experience in optical microscopy is required, as is a working knowledge in image data acquisition. Experience in one or more of the following areas is desirable: biological sample handling, image analysis, computer programming, femtosecond lasers, or nonlinear optics. We require the candidate to have strong communication and analytical skills, to be self-motivated, and be able to work independently and within a multi-disciplinary environment.
