The Single Cell Facility(SCF) is a central scientific core facility within the ETH Department of Biosystems Science and engineering(D-BSSE), located in Basel. The SCF serves the department by providing technology and support in flow cytometry and automated microscopy. The SCF works closely together with the Laboratory Automation Facility. Currently, our flow cytometry equipment consists of a MoFlo XDP, a customized BD Influx with 8 lasers, a BD FACSAria III, and two BD LSR Fortessa. The SCF will be staffed with five people, two of whom are dedicated to flow cytometry, two to microscopy, and one to image analysis and data management. Currently we have a position opening due to the retirement of one of our flow cytometry operators. We are looking for an experienced individual interested in a diverse and innovative work environment to fill the position of our second:
