Jobs on offer at C-CAMP
Technical Assistant at Central Imaging and Flow Cytometry Facility (CIFF) Posted on April 25th 2013
One position for Technical Assistant available at CIFF
Qualification: B.Tech Electronics Engineering. B.Tech Instrumentation Engineering. B.Tech Biomedical Engineering, B.Tech Optical Engineering, MSc Electronics, MSc Instrumentation, MSc Photonics or any related and equivalent degrees. Diploma holders with sufficient industrial experience may also be considered.
Experience: Even though prior work experience is not mandatory experience in PCB design, Labview, Matlab, Industrial Automation etc. would be an added advantage. People who have done projects in industrial environments designing optical or electronics systems would be given preference.
Facility Description: The Imaging facility at NCBS provides researchers with access to high-end platform technologies in the Imaging space. The facility has state of the art confocal microscopes, flow cytometers, optical manipulation systems, super-resolution imaging stations, servers and workstation, as well an upcoming R&D centre in optical instrumentation. We do not believe in operator assisted imaging or flow cytometry facilities as it would not be practical for any operator/s to understand and develop interest in all of the research projects of an institution and successfully run those experiments in a given time frame. Therefore, we believe in training the individual researchers to operate microscopes and/or flow cytometers available at NCBS.
Job Description: This is a multispectral role and involves the following responsibilities.
1. Learning and training users on various imaging instruments. Learning is a very important part of this Job. The selected candidates are required to get trained or train themselves on various imaging instruments as well as on various software and techniques as required by the facility and/or R&D projects.
2. Facility Management Tasks: Coordinate with the Infrastructure (IT, electrical, AC etc.) team and other members of the facility to ensure smooth running of the facility and support users.
3. Research and Development:
a. Design and implement electronic circuits for microscope automation
b. Write scripts in instrumentation control software like Labview, Matlab etc.
c. Write pluggins for Microscope Control Software Micromanager
4. System Maintenance and Support
a. Troubleshoot problems with instruments especially microscopes
b. Help groups on campus in configuring microscopes using Micromanager software
5. Course Organization
Help in activities related to organization of various courses conducted on campus. The activities include:
a. Designing Website, poster, brochure and other ad material
b. Compile course book and other study material
c. Logistics support
d. Teaching Assistance
The position will be initially for one year and extendable to a maximum of 3 years.
Interested candidates may contact (Dr. Manoj Mathew) firstname.lastname@example.org, with a CV and Statement of Purpose.
