Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein

Lübeck, Germany

The University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe with more than 80 clinics and institutes. We provide top research at the interface of medicine, science and technology and maintain research co-operations with universities all over the world.

The project is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within the call ‘Neuartige, experimentelle Lichtmikroskopie für die Forschung’( nr 59/index.html).

It aims to adapt STED nanoscopy to the in vivo imaging of vascular processes in the neurosciences. New microscopic techniques such as advanced scanning patterns, adaptive optics and microscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT shall enable a multiscale imaging with minimized photodamage.

The research group for STED nanoscopy is localized in the Small Animallmaging Lübeck (SAIL) facility in the Center for Brain, Behavior and Metabolism (CBBM), University of Lübeck. lt is based on a broad background in biomedical optics, intravital microscopy and cerebrovascular biology, but the specific technology for applying intravital STED nanoscopy to cerebral vessels has to be established within the project.We are looking for professional and competent support to start on May 1st 2019 or later.

Your profile:

  • The ideal candidate should seek technological challenges with high scientific potential.
  • You have studied biology, physics or related subjects and has gathered in-depth experience in biomedical optics, microscopy and neurosciences.
