Career advancement opportunities:

Research Assistant position for SFB-SEM and array tomography, Bioimaging core facility at The John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK

This position may suit someone who recently completed a PhD or someone who wants a career in a core facility. The goal is to establish SFB-SEM and array tomography, utilising recently installed new equipment, to pump prime the research programmes of two research groups working on plasmodesmata in plants and channels between filamentous bacterial cells. The successful candidate will be based in the core facility but work very closely with these two academic groups.

Application deadline: March 2nd

Courses & Webinars:

Approaches To User Training In Core Facilities: Pre And Post Pandemic by CTLS – March 3, 4 pm CET

Many Core Labs need to train users on the equipment in their facilities. This gives users more autonomy and a transferable skill. However training can often be haphazard, undocumented and untested. This webinar proposes to look at current training practices in two example facilities and also discuss what CTLS can do to promote best practices in user training.

Scanning Electron Microscopy and X-ray Imaging webinar series by Global BioImaging & ZEISS Microscopy – April-June 2022
 
This webinar series will introduce Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-ray Imaging including fundamentals of SEM, X-ray imaging basics, sample preparation in life sciences, and applications of SEM in three-dimensions. Imaging core facility staff including personnel of light, electron, or biomedical imaging facilities are invited to attend. Principal investigators, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate/PhD and Master's students who utilize imaging and microscopy technologies are also invited to attend. Four webinars are organized between April and June.

Stereology Workshop at the Institute of Anatomy, University of Bern, Switzerland August 8 – 12 and August 13 & 14 (newCAST training)


This workshop provides an introduction to state-of-the-art stereology with emphasis on its practical application in biomedicine. Experimental design, sampling, use of stereological probes, estimation of stereological parameters, and the application of statistical methods appropriate for stereology are covered. The workshop encompasses lectures, classroom exercises with real biomedical images, and laboratory practicals demonstrating the implementation of proper sampling and processing techniques on real biological organs.

It is intended for students and researchers from the field of biology and medicine interested in sampling and measurement of 3D structures. Applications involving any kind of microscopy (e.g. light microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, electron microscopy) as well as non-invasive scanning techniques like CT and NMR are welcome.
