The Harvard Center for Biological Imaging (HCBI) seeks a full-time Imaging Scientist to assist with operations in a fast-paced and exciting light microscopy environment. The HCBI provides access to 15 high-end light microscopes, an extensive cloud-based data storage and image analysis IT environment and sample preparation resources. Nearly 700 users from Harvard, local research hospitals, other academic institutions and industry use the facility on an annual basis. The HCBI is a unique "Evergreen" facility whereby much of our equipment is leased and replaced every three years. This ensures the applicant will continually be exposed to new, cutting-edge instruments. Imaging services include confocal, multi-photon, super-resolution (lattice SIM, 3D SMLM), lightsheet, TIRF, whole slide scanning, high content screening, live cell imaging, macroscopy, laser microdissection, fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM), and tissue clearing. We are also in the process of procuring a lightsheet instrument for dedicated live sample imaging and a platform for spatial genomics (arrival of both systems expected in winter/spring 2022). Learn more about our facility and our team here: https://hcbi.fas.harvard.edu/.
The Imaging Scientist will serve as an advisor to HCBI users regarding experimental design and image analysis, a primary contact for new user training for both basic and advanced light microscopy techniques, and a point of contact for questions arising from the use of HCBI imaging systems. The Imaging Specialist will take the lead on system maintenance, peripheral component upgrades, repairs and customizations of microscopes. The Imaging Scientist will be a key member of the HCBI's educational team and will participate in teaching activities at bi-monthly Lunch and Learn lectures and annual microscopy workshops. Although this is primarily a service position, the Imaging Scientist may have the opportunity to participate in additional research activities at the HCBI.
This is a two-year term position with the possibility of renewal providing satisfactory performance and availability of funding.We regret that Harvard University is unable to provide work authorization and/or visa sponsorship for this position.
