POSITION SUMMARY

The goal of the Image-based Assay Development team is to develop and implement a pipeline of image-based assays of cell organization, state, activity, and function. This Scientist-level position will develop robust cell image-based assays and quantitative analyses of key cellular activities that are amenable to scale-up and can be integrated with a live-cell microscopy pipeline. S/he may be required to supervise the activities of others and will work collaboratively with the Institute’s technical and programmatic teams to achieve the Institute’s matrixed, programmatic objectives.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Develop robust protocols, reproducible image-based assays, and quantitative analyses of cell organization, dynamics, states, activities, and function
  • Collaborate with other teams in the institute to scale-up protocols for implementation in a live-cell microscopy pipeline
  • Maintain rigorous quality control standards
  • Contribute to implementation of an image and file management system
  • Coordinate with other programs in the Institute to ensure seamless integration and sharing of resources and data
  • Prepare written summaries and present activities internally and publicly

 

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS

  • PhD in cell biology, biophysics, bioengineering or related science or engineering degree
  • Experience in image-based cell biology assay development
  • Experience in a range of state of the art light microscope modalities; experience in 3D live-cell and timelapse imaging techniques preferred
  • Experience in image analysis and image-derived data analysis
  • Experience with standard cell biology techniques (cell culture, Western, Immunofluorescence)
