Postdoc position, Intravital microscopy for investigating the blood-brain barrier (m/f)
The project is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within the call ‘Neuartige, experimentelle Lichtmikroskopie für die Forschung’ ( nr 59/index.html).

It aims to adapt STED nanoscopy as well as 2P microscopy to the in vivo imaging of vascular processes in the neurosciences. New microscopic techniques such as advanced scanning patterns, adaptive optics and microscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) shall enable a multiscale imaging with minimized photodamage.

The research group for Intravital Microscopy includes a PhD student in addition to the offered postdoc position and is localized in the Small Animal lmaging Lübeck (SAIL) facility in the Center for Brain, Behavior and Metabolism (CBBM), University of Lübeck. lt is based on a broad background in biomedical optics, intravital microscopy and cerebrovascular biology, but the specific technology for applying intravital STED nanoscopy to cerebral vessels has to be established within the project.
