Postdoc- Image Processing and Analysis for Super-Resolution Microscopy- Genoa, Italy


IIT ( invites qualified level applicants for a Post Doc junior position at the “Molecular Microscopy and Spectroscopy” Research Line lead by Dr. Giuseppe Vicidomini.
- Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, with its headquarters in Genoa, Italy, is a non-profit institution with the primary goal of creating and disseminating scientific knowledge and strengthening Italy’s technological competitiveness. IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created a large-scale infrastructure in Genova, a network of 10 state-of-the-art laboratories countrywide and recruited an international staff of about 1200 people from more than 50 countries. IIT’s research endeavour focuses on high-tech and innovation, representing the forefront of technology with possible application from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnologies.
Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia is an Equal Opportunity Employer that actively seeks diversity in the workforce.
- Candidates should have a solid background and good experimental skills in image processing/analysis, should be strongly motivated and keen to work in an interdisciplinary research field.
- The selected candidate will work on novel computational methods, with the aim of improving the information content and the spatial and temporal resolution/range of super-resolution microscopy.
- Our group recently introduced a novel single-photon detector array (Castello et al., Nat. Methods, 16, 175–178, 2019) that when integrated into a point scanning microscope allows measuring both the arrival-time and the image-plane position of the detected photons. This ability gives access to a series of novel spatial and temporal dimensions typically discarded/averaged during the microscope image formation process.
- The candidate will use image deconvolution, deep/machine learning, or other computational tools to explore these new dimensions and achieve better microscopy performances. 
- Essential qualifications for this position include a PhD in computer science, physics, engineering or closely related discipline. - Advanced coding skills (Python and/or Matlab, C#) and former experience with deep learning are highly desirable.
- Expertise in microscopy and controlling system will be considered a plus.
