The Microscopy Specialist will play a central role in the growth and success of the Microscopy Core by providing routine training and support to Abigail Wexner Research Institute (AWRI) investigators and staff who use the Core. Major equipment in the Microscopy Core includes two confocal microscopes, two motorized widefield fluorescence microscopes, a scanning electron microscope, an atomic force microscope, and a laser capture microscope, along with four image analysis workstations. In addition to instruments, the core provides support in study and method development, design of advanced and unbiased image analysis approaches, and high-quality data reporting. The core does not offer sample preparation services or house wet lab activities. The Microscopy Specialist’s responsibilities may include training and assisting users with instruments and software, participating in development of image analysis algorithms, troubleshooting support, and routine instrument maintenance tasks. Prior experience with these responsibilities is desired but not necessary. The right candidate should have significant prior experience with using microscopy instruments and image analysis tools, a genuine interest in further developing their microscopy expertise, and good communication and problem-solving skills. This position will offer opportunities to learn about and assist with a wide range of interesting projects and experiments, and to make significant intellectual contributions with the appropriate skillset.
