We are seeking a highly motivated lead Imaging Specialist to join our vibrant, multidisciplinary team at the Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE) of the University of Birmingham (UK). COMPARE, a joint venture with the University of Nottingham, brings together world-leading experts in microscopy, biophysics and computer science to investigate the fundamental mechanisms of receptor signalling and their alterations in human disease. Our Advanced Microscopy Facility hosts 9 state-of-the art fluorescence microscopes (lattice light sheet, Marianas diSPIM, Ultramicroscope II, Nikon N-STORM, 4-camera TIRF, ultrafast FRET/calcium imaging, Nikon N-SIM, FCS, and two-photon) plus several custom experimental set-ups. The lead Imaging Specialist is a key role in COMPARE, taking responsibility for the management and day-to-day running of the Advanced Microscopy Facility, ensuring maintenance of the equipment and providing training and support to a wide user base.
