Open Positions

We are looking for a postdoctoral candidate in the field of advanced microscopy in the Fiolka lab at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas

Available projects include high resolution light sheet microscopes for quantitative 3D cell biology, adaptive optics for deep tissue imaging and novel technologies for rapid volumetric imaging.

Candidates with a M.Sc. or PhD in physics or engineering, and documented experience with microscopy are encouraged to apply. Previous experience in working with optics and lasers is a plus, as well as programming experience in Matlab, LabView, C++ or Python.

The candidate should be a teamplayer, have good communication skills, should be enthusiastic about imaging and excited about performing collaborative research at the intersection of microscope development, cell biology and image analysis.‚Äč

The successful candidate will design, build and test advanced microscopy technologies. Furthermore, the candidate will use the new microscopes in collaborative research in cancer cell biology and advanced image processing. The candidate will also be involved in disseminating progress in publications and presentations at conferences. 

We offer a unique and diverse environment where biologists, physicists, engineers and computer scientists work together to establish a patho-physiologically relevant cell biology , with emphasis on cancer-related processes. More information on our research can be found on our Research page.

We have strong collaborations with the lab of Gaudenz Danuser, which applies cutting edge image processing to three-dimensional microscope data. For more information please visit the Danuser lab website.
