Type d’annonce: Proposition – Postes CDD

Description de la proposition:

The cooperative laboratory ABIVAX-CNRS aims to develop its antiviral discovery plateform. ABIVAX is an innovative biotechnology company focused on targeting the immune system to eliminate viral disease. ABIVAX is advancing multiple preclinical candidates against viral targets (i.e. HIV, Chikungunya, Ebola, Dengue) and several of these compounds are planned to enter clinical development within the next 18 months. Many of the cooperative laboratory activities rely on cutting edge imaging techniques. To foster, enrich and accelerate its research, the cooperative laboratory seeks the help of an engineer specialized in Image Analysis for Life Sciences. The position is for a *ABIVAX-CNRS engineer*, 3-years fixed term until end of Mars 2020. It involves Service and Development activities. Importantly, a strong feature of the cooperative activities involve the generation of very large images. The candidate is expected to help researchers with the challenges of large images manipulation, analysis and processing.

Light microscopy engineer (IE) IGBMC

Type d’annonce: Proposition – Postes CDD

Description de la proposition:

A position of a light microscopy engineer is available in the Imaging Center of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC).

The appointment will be full time on the French Public Scientific and Technical Research Institution IE2 grade (Ingénieur d’Etudes 2 classe EPST) initially for 12 months.

The IGBMS aims to develop interdisciplinary research at the interface of biology, biochemistry, physics and medicine, but also to attract students from around the world by offering very high-level education in the field of biomedical sciences. The IGBMC campus is located on the « Parc d’Innovation d’Illkirch » in the Strasbourg suburbs, which represents an exceptional scientific, academic and industrial environment and largely favors collaborations and technology transfer (http://igbmc.fr/).
The service activity of the Imaging Center (ICI) is tightly interwoven with the scientific activity of the IGBMC and that of the broader scientific community. The staff of the ICI provides its users with a possibility and emphasizes the importance of autonomous access to most of the systems of the core facility. This is achieved via personalized or grouped trainings designed in function of each scientific project after the evaluation of feasibility and delays. The ICI staff is in charge of designing imaging procedures starting from biological sample preparation (http://ici.igbmc.fr/).
The successful candidate is expected to have a Master’s degree in Life Sciences or Engineering and an experience of using advanced light microscopes and image processing software in biomedical research. Previous experience with electron microscopy is desirable.
The successful candidate must be familiar with the theoretical and practical aspects of light microscopy (optics) and of image processing.
The successful candidate must possess excellent communication skills and must be fluent in English. French language will be a considerable asset.

Ingénieur en microscopie / instrumentation optique

Type d’annonce: Demande – Postes CDD

Description de la proposition:

Madame, Monsieur,
Récemment diplômé de l’École nationale supérieure d’ingénieurs du Mans, je suis spécialisé dans la mesure physique, les capteurs et l’instrumentation dédiée à l’acquisition de données.

Je cherche un poste d’ingénieur ayant attrait à la microscopie optique ou l’instrumentation optique en général (capteurs/mesure).

J’ai réalisé un stage de six mois au CEA/Leti ayant pour sujet la réalisation d’un microscope couplant imagerie sans lentille et imagerie de fluorescence. Ce stage a confirmé mon intérêt pour le domaine de la microscopie et de l’instrumentation optique ; je serais ravi de continuer dans celui-ci.

Mes compétences concernent notamment les domaines de l’optique théorique et instrumentale (mise en place de banc de mesure, de caractérisation, d’imagerie), du traitement du signal/image, de l’électronique et de l’informatique.

Je vous joins mon CV pour plus de détails concernant mes expériences et compétences.

Sincères salutations,
