General Information

General Information

Since MIAP consists of many partner units, distributed over 3 countries, we can offer a large number of career opportunities in life science, microscopy and image analysis. With partner institutes including traditional universities, research centers and facilities of the Max Planck Institutes and Fraunhofer Institutes we offer a quite diverse range of job opportunities in the "Upper Rhine Region".

You can find all relevant and latest job offers directly on the partner institutes career websites:

Albert-Ludwigs University Freiburg: undefinedhttp://www.uni-freiburg.de/verwaltung/stellenboerse
Universitätsklinik Freiburg: undefinedhttps://www.uniklinik-freiburg.de/karriere/stellenangebote.html

Please keep in mind: The recruitment process is sometimes long and complicated. Therefore the procedure is quite different between our partner institutes and sometimes even between facilities within one institute. In some cases not all of the job offers are listed on the general recruitment page of a given institute but on sub-pages of faculties, divisions, facilities or individual research groups. Therefore it is a good idea to check the websites of the research groups and (core) facilities of interest in addition to commercial career websites for latest job offers.

On this website we want to highlight a selection of job offers in the field of life science, microscopy and image analysis from our MIAP partner network. This list is based on submissions from our partner units to the MIAP administration. It is only a selection and not showing all job offers of our partner institutes.

If you have any kind of question regarding a job offer posted on this website, please contact the contact person listed in the job offer or MIAP (undefinedinfo@miap.eu). If you want to list your job offer on this website you can contact MIAP directly (undefinedinfo@miap.eu).

We hope you will find some interesting job opportunities and wish you all the best for your future career. We'd like to hear from you again as an employee of one of our partner institutes within the MIAP framework.

Postdoctoral Position

The Laboratory of Bioimaging and Pathologies, CNRS-UMR 7021, University of Strasbourg, France is seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral scientist with interest in interdisciplinary research mixing advanced fluorescence microscopy, photophysics and molecular biology. The Laboratory develops advanced single molecule FRET (smFRET) experiments to obtain key information on biomolecular interactions. The successful candidate will apply smFRET to characterize the molecular mechanism and dynamics associated to the replication of the DNA methylation pattern by the UHRF1/DNMT1 tandem which plays essential role in epigenetics. Candidates should have a solid background and good experimental skills in advanced microscopy techniques and, should be strongly motivated and keen to work in an interdisciplinary research field. Previous experience in image analysis will be an asset. The postdoctoral fellowship is funded by a NIE Labex grant. The postdoctoral appointment will be for 18 months. Detailed information about the research can be requested via email.

The position is initially for 2 years. The Imaging Facility is part of the institute's scientific infrastructure. It currently has 8 advanced microscopes. Our Institute investigates the molecular basis of the immune response and other topics of the developmental biology, such as the origin and differentiation of the immune cells as well as the development of vertebrate embryo. Another main focus of the Institute is Epigenetic. This area deals with inheritable traits, which are not caused by changes in the DNA sequence. 

Your tasks

The candidate will support Facility staff in technical and organizational matters to ensure smooth running of Imaging Facility. This includes introductions of users to microscopes and software, troubleshooting, checks and maintenance of the instruments and other tasks.

Your qualifications

  • Completed vocational training as a technical assistant (MTA, BTA, CTA) or equivalent qualification with at least 1 year work experience related to microscopy
  • Knowledge of image processing programs
  • Experience of working at a microscopy/imaging facility
  • Experience in sample preparation for light microscopy
  • Team worker, reliable, communicative, willing to learn, independent
  • Good level of German and English (oral and written) is required

 

We offer 

We offer a modern workplace in an international environment, where you will help solving challenging problems in current research. In our innovative and creative climate you will have ample opportunity for further development and training. Salary will be based on previous experience according to TVöD guidelines. Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in areas, where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. A childcare facility is directly attached to the institute.
