The Microscopy Core
Within the Icahn School of Medicine at the Mount Sinai, New York, the Microscopy Core facility is an ever expanding center for state-of-the-art imaging by Light microscopy and Image Analysis, supporting a wide range of research groups and applications, from basic research to clinical, pharmacology and personalized medicine. An extensive assortment of equipment is currently available, including confocal and widefield microscopes, an intravital 2photon microscope as well as a soon to be delivered Light Sheet. Furthermore, the facility has state of the art workstations for 3D-4D image analysis including commercial and open source analysis software, supporting science from project design, to acquisition, to processing and analysis.
"Big data" means different things to different people. What it means to us is that we're interested in someone who makes use of computational approaches to understand biological problems. There are a lot of biological problems out there, a lot of large data sets, and a lot of ways to approach making sense of them. We're hoping to find someone who is interested in bringing that flavor of science to a department that cares deeply about undergraduate education, and undergraduate-driven research. We are well supported, and have great colleagues in other departments. This is an environment where you can "do" science and "teach" science at the same time. The sort of candidate I'm imagining is someone who has put some effort into taking interdisciplinary approaches to their science (like you...
