The Research Associate will be the primary imaging expert in the core. Responsibilities will include operating and maintaining microscopes and computers, working with a wide variety of users to devise and implement imaging-based studies, coordinating the use and development of custom optical equipment, training users on aspects of imaging and computational image analysis both formally and informally, and serving as a resource for university researchers regarding advances in biological imaging. 

We are looking for a candidate with excellent interpersonal, organizational, and communication skills. The candidate must have, at a minimum, three years’ experience with optical imaging methods or an advanced degree in a biological or physical science or engineering. It is preferred that the successful candidate have experience with multiple optical imaging methods applied to biological systems, skills and experience related to the maintenance of microscopes, data management, and computational image analysis, experience working in a biological imaging user facility, and experience with training researchers on the use of imaging instrumentation and the design of experiments.
