Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI): 03 Tenure Track/Postdoc positions

Position 1: Light Microscopy Facility Scientist


  • A PhD in Biology or Physics.
  • Experience with high-end microscopy either as a post-doc or as a member of a microscopy facility.
  • The position is financed for three years with the option to become permanent.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and accepted until the position is filled.

Position 2: Support Scientist in the Friedrich Lab

The successful candidate will interact well with members of our group and push the envelope of techniques to support different projects.

A strong background is expected in at least one of the following areas:

  • Optical engineering
  • Advanced analysis of neural data and programming
  • Machine learning approaches and data processing for connectomics
  • Design and control of custom laboratory instruments


  • The candidate may hold an advanced degree in science (e.g., PhD) but this is not a strict requirement.
  • The position is initially for a fixed term but may become permanent thereafter.

Position 3: PhD or Postdoctoral Position in Lightsheet Microscopy- Group Liberali


  • Candidates holding a Master or PhD degree in Biophysics, Bioenginneering or Life Sciences with a strong background in light sheet microscopy are encouraged to apply.
  • Ability to work proactively, independently but also as a team member and good planning skills are required. Proficiency in Python is a plus and fluency in English both written and oral is mandatory.

Application to be submitted electronically. Applications will be reviewed as they are received.

Position 4: Postdoctoral Position: Motor Circuit Function

About the project: A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Silvia Arber to study the function of brainstem neurons in motor behaviors.

Requirements: The successful candidate should be highly motivated to contribute to our efforts to understand the function of the motor system. He/she should have a background in applying in vivo methods to neuronal circuit function and is expected to take a leading role in in vivo electrophysiology and/or 2-photon imaging experiments (data acquisition and analysis), aligned with recording behavior. Prior work on motor system function is not a must. Background in programming and knowledge in hardware required for data acquisition is a plus. In addition, we expect excellent communication and organization skills, and the ability to work as a team member.

Applications: email to and include a CV and motivation letter, as well as names and email addresses for at least two referees who are well familiar with past work achieved by the candidate. Informal questions about the position can be directed to the same email address.
