The course will be able to accept altogether 16 students.
We are aiming to establish four interdisciplinary student teams consisting of 2 biologists, 1 computer scientist, and 1 physicist/microscopist each. After the initial intense introduction to light sheet technology, the teams will tackle research problems defined in their applications.
The applicants are therefore encouraged to write a short, one page motivation letter, where they:
a) describe their educational background,
b) summarize their skill set in biology, computer science, and microscopy,
c) and ideally propose a concise imaging experiment that could benefit from light sheet microscopy.
Please note that CEITEC is particularly well equipped to deal with plants and viruses in tissue culture settings and therefore we encourage biologists working with these systems to apply.
Additionally, the applicants should submit their CV, publication record, and summary of online presence (websites, blogs, Figshare, Wiki pages, social media handles, GitHub, etc.).
Participants are required to bring a poster that will be displayed throughout the course.
