3-dimensional electron microscopy.

The group of Prof. Niels de Jonge (Vanderbilt, USA) and the group of Prof.
Dominique Drouin (Sherbrooke, Canada) have an position for a post-doc in the
Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics in the Medical School of
Vanderbilt University, or in the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering in the University of Sherbrooke (Canada). Collaborations exist
with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the National Institute of Health.

3D aberration corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) is
a novel method to obtain 3D structural information of biological samples
based on the principles of confocal microscopy. 3D STEM is an alternative
for electron tomography with potentially improved capabilities. Funding is
provided by the National Institute of Health through a newly granted R01

The post-doc candidate should have a strong background in experimental
biophysics, physics, or computer science, with experience in at least two of
the following fields, electron microscopy, bioinformatics, advanced image
processing, and biological sample preparation for electron microscopy. Good
communication skills are essential. The candidate is expected to take
responsibility for research on characterization, improvement and biomedical
application of 3D aberration corrected scanning transmission electron
microscopy (STEM). 

Good communication skills in English are essential.
