    Opportunity: Imaging Engineer position @ CNRS Gif-sur-Yvette -- Paris, France
    Submitted by Jean-Stephane JOLY; posted on Thursday, November 22, 2012


    The TEFOR infrastructure starts its activities in 2013 and aims at gathering French platforms to provide several cutting edge transgenesis and phenotyping services to drosophila and zebrafish labs across the world. To this aim, systematic large scale phenotyping programs will be performed and supported by the development of ambitious websites to view and navigate through collections of 3D images. TEFOR will help five phenotyping platforms/labs to develop and use appropriate imaging tools, in collaboration with two supporting TEFOR technological partners specialized in bioimaging.The successful applicant will belong to the TEFOR infrastructure office (6 persons including a microscopist and a database bioinformatician). The TEFOR infrastructure office is located in the Institute of Neurosciences A. Fessard in the CNRS research center in a green valley, close to the Paris-Sud University campus and 40 min to downtown Paris.


    In the TEFOR infrastructure office, the following applications will be supported: visualizations of drosophila and zebrafish embryos, brains and other organs imaged by confocal, biphoton or newly developed microscopes coupled to vibratomes. The efficiency and usability of visual computing applications in neurosciences and embryology and the interactivity for very large image datasets will be improved. The rapid access to distributed image datasets across memory and network hierarchies will be provided.

    The hired engineer will have three main tasks:
    1. To install and administer, in close connection with local system engineers, computers and servers for the treatment, storage and exchange of microscope images in the phenotyping platforms.
    2. To install and optimize Web solutions for the distributed visualization of high content drosophila and zebrafish voxel images or of images previously stitched, segmented and down-sampled by the Bioemergences platform (Nadine Peyrieras, TEFOR and France-Bioimaging).
    3. To develop visualization software in collaboration with the Icy consortium (J.C. Olivo-Marin, collab TEFOR/ France Bioimaging).


    The successful candidate is expected to be motivated, bold and independent. Expertise in web development and image analysis would be expected. Additional knowledge in system administration would be welcome. Ability to work in an interdisciplinary and international environment is required.


    The one-year (potentially one additional year) grant is funded in the frame of the TEFOR Infrastructure, which is supported by a 12,5M Euros French "Big Loan" grant. The net salary is around 2300Euros/month.


    TEFOR Infrastructure Office, CNRS Gif-sur-Yvette, France
