Senior Scientist in Automation (10315)

The Rosalind Franklin Institute

Harwell, Didcot

We are currently seeking a highly motivated senior scientist to join our Structural Biology theme at the Rosalind Franklin Institute.

  • Building on recent work demonstrating the use of focused ion beams (FIB) and scanning electron microscopes (SEM) to image cells and tissues (DOIs: 10.1038/s41467-023-36372-9; 10.1101/2022.09.21.508877).
  • We are looking to recruit a computational expert to develop and apply AI and automation of cryogenic FIB/SEM and lift-out of biological specimens for structural biology.
  • This will enable imaging high volumes of lamella of multicellular specimens, implemented alongside efforts to streamline high-precision targeting in 3D and structure determination and facilitate attempts to make the technique more widely applicable.
