Opportunities at EMBL

1. Postdoctoral Fellow

Rome, Italy

The Microscopy Facility at the Neurobiology and Epigenetics Unit at EMBL Rome, Italy, is looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow who will participate in optical instrumentation and spatial-omics research as part of a collaborative international environment. The microscopy facility, together with the histology facility, is establishing pipelines for spatial transcriptomics, proteomics and connectomics (see for example https://www.embl.org/news/lab-matters/beyond-the-lens-microscopy-at-embl-rome/). 

Our aim is to visualize large scale connections in neural tissue as well as proteins and thousands of individual RNA transcripts within large tissue volumes. This job has a strong focus on technology development to improve imaging systems as well as to expand and up-scale experimental pipelines. As such, we expect several technological innovations that may lead to an important role in industry, within the context of a core facility or the creation of a start-up.

 

Your role

To meet the research and technology development goals of the facility, the person appointed will directly take part in projects such as to expand multiplex capacity of existing spatial -omics methods, develop sample preparation protocols, implement light sheet microscopy for large volumetric imaging, to name a few. Depending on his/her interests and expertise, he/she is expected to take a strong lead on his/her project, to develop and pursue independent ideas and participate in the technology transfer process.

Closing date: 8 December 2022

You might also have

  • Previous exposure to any one of these areas is preferred: super-resolution microscopy, microscopy automation, image analysis or computer vision; or
  • Skills in histology, from basic IF to clearing techniques and expansion microscopy;
  • Any knowledge on multiplex imaging, spatial transcriptomics or smFISH would be advantageous.
  • Knowledge of Italian is beneficial but not required; the working language at EMBL is English.

2. Postdoctoral Fellow – Bridging Excellence Fellowship

Research
All EMBL Sites (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain)

Make your mark as a transatlantic scientist!

The EMBL | Stanford Life Science Alliance invites researchers to submit an application to the Bridging Excellence Postdoctoral Program. With a network of over 50 labs from across EMBL and Stanford University, we believe in working together to leverage the know-how, technologies and opportunities at both leading institutions to accelerate biological research. 

Our Bridging Excellence Fellowships support ambitious and creative joint projects between EMBL and Stanford University, defined by postdoctoral applicants. The fellowships provide funding for a 3-year stipend. Postdocs can choose either EMBL or at Stanford University as the host institution for the duration of their fellowship. During the three-year fellowship, postdocs spend up to one year visiting the partner institution (i.e. 3 years at the host lab Stanford, of which up to 1 year is spent visiting the partner lab EMBL or vice versa). The fellowships include a contribution towards lab consumables, a generous travel and accommodation supplement for visiting your collaborators lab, and funds for presenting your project at an international conference.

Your role

We invite all eligible researchers to submit a proposal describing a collaboration between at least one lab at EMBL and one faculty member from Stanford University (specifically in the School of Medicine or School of Humanities & Sciences). This collaboration should build on the strengths of the partner laboratories, as well as your own expertise. Fellowships will be awarded to researchers, who take up a position as a postdoctoral fellow at EMBL or at Stanford University for 3 years. During this time, fellows will spend up to one year visiting their collaborators at the partner institution to work on the joint research project (multiple visits totalling 1 year are permitted). In addition to benefitting from the mentorship from two expert supervisors, fellows will also be able to take advantage of  postdoctoral training opportunities from both institutions.

Researchers who want to bridge two leading research institutions, work with cutting-edge technology, and develop their international profile are encouraged to apply.  Applicants should be prepared to be internationally mobile and be excited by the prospect of being an ambassador for transatlantion.

Closing date: 27 January 2023

3.Computational biologists in Spatial-omics & Image data analysis

Research
EMBL Heidelberg

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a world leader in scientific research and at the forefront in the development of cutting-edge technologies.  In particular, exciting single cell spatial-omics methods are revolutionising biological research.  The field is advancing at a very rapid and exciting pace to measure multiple parameters in-situ from the same single cell in their native in-situ context (spatial-omics).  

We are looking for a highly motivated computational scientist who loves to implement and develop computational solutions for image-based spatial-omics within a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge environment. The successful candidate will be part of the Data Science Center, and embedded in the Stegle research group. She/he will work closely with the GenTechDev team to develop computational solutions to extract biological signal from images generated by different types of spatial-omics technologies. The successful candidate will avail of expertise in EMBL’s Core Facilities and a number of research groups, including those of Eileen Furlong, Rainer Pepperkok and Sinem Saka.  

The position will be directly linked to the Innovation Campus Health & Life Sciences, a major innovation driver for the region, for the state of Baden-W├╝rttemberg and beyond. The Innovation Campus Health & Life Sciences is a joint project of seven outstanding biomedical and life science institutions: Heidelberg University with its two medical faculties and the Faculty of Life Sciences, the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research (MPImF), the Central Institute of Mental Health (ZI), Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) and Mannheim University Hospital (UKMA), which are currently establishing the Heidelberg Mannheim Health & Life Science Alliance. The institutions want to define strategic scientific, translational and transfer goals in future fields of the life sciences and achieve them in cooperation, with single-cell and spatial-omics methods being one focus of current development.

Your role

Your primary task is to foster computational innovations for spatial omics technologies. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to work together with an interdisciplinary team of “wet lab” and computational scientists, who are developing spatial single cell methods to advance research throughout EMBL. You will play a key role in the spatial omics efforts by developing a wide range of computational analysis pipelines, spanning from experimental design (e.g. automatic probe generation) through to data analyses and visualization for methods such as Seq-FISH+.  The successful candidate is expected to be able to work independently, while being an excellent team player and be highly motivated and very well-organized, leveraging the computational expertise of the Stegle group and other computational laboratories at EMBL and beyond.  As well as applying existing computational strategies, evidence of an ability to pioneer, robustly test and innovative analytical approaches would also be desirable.
