A postdoctoral position is immediately available at the Imaging Unit of the Department of Experimental Oncology (DEO) at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO, Milan), to develop novel computational imaging technologies for microscopy in the context of specific cancer-research projects. The selected candidate will work with Dr. Simona Rodighiero, responsible of the Imaging Unit, and actively collaborate with Unit staff and DEO scientists.
The Imaging Unit at DEO is equipped with state of the art resources including wide-field and confocal, total internal reflection (TIRF), high content, time-lapse microscopy and super resolution microscopy. DEO is the research wing of IEO and is focused on the deep understanding of cancer-associated molecular mechanisms, with ~400 scientists and 21 PIs with complementary expertise in the fields of cancer biology, immunology/immunotherapy, omic sciences, cell signalling, cancer models, structural biology and computational biology.
A PhD in computer science, physics or a related field and an interest in bio-imaging are required. Previous research experience related to optics or biology is an advantage. Fluency in English is mandatory.
Interested and qualified candidates should fill the application form, upload a detailed and up-to-date CV/resume, as well as a covering letter explaining what makes them motivated and suitable for this position, by June 30th 2021.
