An international team of scientists including David Q. Matus, PhD, and Benjamin L. Martin, PhD, in the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology and Stony Brook University Cancer Center researchers,  have developed a new cell imaging technology combining lattice light sheet microscopy (LLSM) and adaptive optics (AO) to create high-resolution “movies” of cells in their 3D environment that also captures subcellular processes. Published in Science, the research reveals a technology that shows the phenotypic diversity within cells across different organisms and developmental stages and in conditions such as mitosis, immune processes and in metastases.

A postdoctoral position is available in our lab at Stony Brook University to investigate symbiotic and developmental processes with Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM). We have recently received funding for three years of postdoctoral support to develop protocols for extensive in vitro and in vivo imaging of cell invasion processes with a focus on the tissue and cellular entry of endosymbiotic algae as they enter their spotted salamander embryo hosts (Ambystoma maculatum). This work is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in collaboration with researchers from Columbia University, The American Museum of Natural History, and Gettysburg College (see Shelf Life Episode 11). The project will combine molecular biology, embryology, cell biology, and extensive light sheet imaging. Preferred candidates will have backgrounds in light sheet and/or confocal microscopy as well as an interest in advanced imaging methods and the intersections of cell and developmental biology with ecology and evolution. Opportunities will exist to develop projects and assist in advanced imaging using C. elegans and zebrafish as well. My laboratory is a part of a modern and well-equipped Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Stony Brook University on Long Island, NY. For further information on our work, please see the following publications on techniques, cell invasion, and the symbiosis. For more information or to apply, please send a letter of interest detailing your expertise, CV and names and contact information of three references to david.matus AT stonybrook.edu To apply click here or visit the Stony Brook HR website and search for position #1702902....
