Scientific employee (m/f/d) at CAi, HHU Düsseldorf

January 2022

Job description

The management of image data is a particular challenge in everyday research due to the complexity and often also the size of these data. Within the framework of the DFG-funded project "I3D:bio - Information Infrastructures for Image Data Management", we will establish an infrastructure that offers services based on OMERO. OMERO is an open-source platform for the vizualisation, management and processing of scientific image data. Within the framework of I3D:bio, target group-oriented and user-oriented instructions for the use of OMERO as a central resource will be made available, as well as tools for the annotation of image data with controlled vocabularies.

Your tasks

At CAi you will be responsible for the deployment of FAIR image data management practices to the German bioimaging research community, including I3D:bio-standard procedures for the installation and operation of OMERO image databases, the deployment of user-friendly data annotation tools. You will contribute to increase the adoption of metadata standards aligned with international initiatives, to deliver support for data deposition in public repositories for bioimage data and help to establish an OMERO-based database for metrology data for the quality control of microscopy systems.

Our requirements

  • a master degree in biological sciences, bioinformatics or related fields, PhD desirable
  • prior experience with the application of light microscopy and the use of OMERO is essential
  • excellent communication skills in an interdisciplinary environment, teamwork, flexibility, strong organizational skills and readiness to travel are expected

The pay scale grouping will be, depending on the personal qualification of the applicant, up to pay grade 13 TV-L. For further information please check here.

We aim to train expert individuals that make the transition from cells to systems and behaviour. A coherent, though flexible curriculum will build a solid foundation in the core concepts of neuroscience. Combined with innovative qualification elements, professional skill development and – most importantly – the opportunity to conduct independent research in a nurturing environment, we aim to train neuroscientists that can compete at the highest international level.

Several positions are available, starting October 1, 2021 . Each position is funded for a period of three years. Given the interdisciplinary character of the RTG, candidates from diverse background (including, but not limited to, life sciences, physics, computer sciences, engineering) should apply.

Successful applicants should have an excellent Master’s degree (or equivalent) in any of therelevant fields (e.g., biology, physics, chemistry, medicine, computer science, technical acoustics, bioinformatics, modeling, image analysis, etc.).

PhD Position: New Developments in Advanced Light Microscopy

May 2021

Ph.D. Fellowship in Bioengineering and Robotics, Curriculum Bionanotechnologies

The processes of Life are naturally dynamic in space and time from the molecular to the organismal level. Among the different imaging techniques, light microscopy is the only one that potentially can work across this full scale of biological organisation. Ideally, light microscopy is able to visualise the inner workings of proteins, protein complexes, organelles, cells, tissues, organs and whole organisms. However, in practice each specific microscopy techniques poses some fundamental limitations in terms of spatiotemporal resolutions/ranges, labelling, invasiveness, and information contents. The core research of our group (Molecular Microscopy and Spectroscopy, MMS) is the design, development, and validation of novel optical, biological and computational tools that allow the modern biologists to peer inside living cells with unprecedented spatiotemporal resolutions/ranges, minimal invasiveness, and augmented information content. This goal can be achieved only by working across many disciplines, from physics to engineering, from computer science to biology.

The PhD student will be fully integrated in this general mission and his/her specific project will be design according to his/her background and skills. Current general projects, among which the candidate will contribute, consist in (i) the implementation of super-resolution laser scanning microscopy techniques (e.g., STED and image-scanning microscopy) for deep- and multi-parameter imaging which leverage a unique class of single-photon detector array recently introduce by our group; (ii) the realisation of single-molecule spectroscopy/imaging/tracking architectures which combines nanometre 3D spatial resolution, high-throughput, and ability to quantitatively study the function and structure of different multi-protein machineries/bio-molecules; (iii) the realisation of a wide-field based microscopy technique for large field-of-view and fast imaging based on non-conventional illumination and detection schemes; (iv) design of computational tools in the context of the above projects for improving the imaging quality, and/or reconstruct the finale images, and/or decodes from the dataset the maximum number of specimen information. The PhD student will work in the realisation of these novel methods in order to investigate the most exciting unresolved question from Life sciences. The PhD student will benefit significantly from the active collaborations of the MMS group with the several computational and photonics groups of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia.


The project is extremely multi-disciplinary, and it involves many different aspects. Hence, the position is open to candidate having a Master’s degree in one of the following areas: Physical Science, Computer Science, and Engineering. Ability and motivation to work independently as well as collaboratively in an interdisciplinary team is very important. Good English language speaking and writing skills are required. For Computer Science candidates good coding skills (preferably in Phyton) and knowledge in Artificial Inteligence are important.

How to Apply:

In order to apply for this position, it is mandatory to refer to the procedures administered by the Università degli studi di Genova. The official call is available at this link Ph.D. Programmes

Please contact Dr. Giuseppe Vicidomini ( for information.

Post-doc position in fluorescence fluctuation microscopy, Rennes (France)

published on 29 Aug

Project title: Analysis of early chromatin remodeling mechanisms at DNA damage sites by advanced live-cell fluorescence fluctuation microscopy methods.

One post-doctoral position is available in the group of Dr. Sébastien Huet, for a period of 2 years starting late 2019. The team belongs to the Institut de Génétique et du Développement de Rennes ( It is currently composed a group leader with a deep experience in fluorescence microscopy and cellular biophysics, a technician expert in cellular and molecular biology, two post-docs specialized in optics and DNA repair and two PhD students. The team is interested in the analysis of the early steps of the DNA repair mechanisms (see e.g. Sellou et al., Mol Biol Cell, 2016, doi: 10.1091/mbc.E16-05-0269 or Smith et al., Nuc Acid Res, 2018, doi: 10.1093/nar/gky334).

The applicant should hold a PhD in biophysics or soft matter physics. A proven experience in either fluorescence fluctuation microscopy methods (FCS, ICS...) or data processing and mathematical modeling, is a prerequisite. Some knowledge in the chromatin field will also be appreciated.
