About emc2020

The European Microscopy Congress 2020 (emc2020) in Copenhagen is being hosted by SCANDEM, and organised by the Royal Microscopical Society under the auspices of the EMS and IFSM. The European Microscopy Congress is known for being the largest European stage for cross-disciplinary research. The broad scientific programme will welcome contributions from all over the world, showcasing the latest research in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering across all microscopy and imaging techniques.

Over 30 conference sessions, an exhibition with more than 100 companies represented and a brilliant selection of features such as pre-event workshops and social networking events.

Imaging Competition

The emc2020 Scientific Imaging Competition will be a great opportunity for microscopists from across the world to showcase their skills. It provides a great outlet for those that can capture the breath-taking and engaging beauty of the microscopical world. Shortlisted entries will be displayed at emc2020 which is also where the competition winners will be announced and awarded. Prizes are provided by many of the sponsoring companies at emc2020. The competition is divided into six categories:

  • Electron Microscopy – Life Science
  • Electron Microscopy – Materials Science
  • Light Microscopy – Life Science
  • Light Microscopy – Materials Science
  • Scanning Probe Microscopy
  • Short Video

The closing date for all entries is midnight GMT Monday 1 June 2020. Short-listed entries will be notified by Friday 10 July 2020. Please go to www.emc2020.eu/image-competition to submit your image.

Vacancy: Technical Support Co-worker Electron Microscopy

Radboud University Medical Center is looking for an enthusiastic Technical Support co-worker Electron Microscopy with a bachelor (hbo) degree in laboratory research (hlo). The project will be carried out at the Electron Microscopy Center of Radboudumc, within the RTC | Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) of the Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen – The Netherlands. The co-worker will be appointed in the department of Biochemistry in the group of Prof. Nico Sommerdijk.

He/she will develop and apply advanced electron microscopic techniques for the structural and chemical analysis of biological materials (hard and soft tissues). The work will be performed to support the activities of the Radboud Technology Center Microscopy, both in service and by being associated to specific scientific EM-oriented projects. (~50:50)

The co-worker will specialize in 3D cryogenic FIB/SEM for volume imaging of biological materials, where he/she will train, assist and support researchers in performing and analyzing their experiments. In addition he/she will perform research within specific projects to push the borders of advanced EM techniques and to apply them to answer open scientific questions. The main focus of the project will be on hard tissue formation (e.g. the mechanisms of bone formation). Furthermore the co-worker will contribute to the running of the Electron Microscopy Center and to the maintenance of the infrastructure.
