3D Imaging Research Scientist for preclinical research

Gubra is looking for a 3-Dimensional (3D) Imaging Research Scientist for our Tissue Research department, which consists of a competent and dedicated team of researchers and laboratory technicians. An important and fast-growing part of Tissue Research is our 3D Imaging activities. Gubra is an absolute world leader in 3D Imaging technology, so here is the chance to become part of a research team that is at the forefront.  


Gubra is an ambitious biotech company striving for excellence at all levels. We focus on doing things efficiently and with high quality – often in new innovative ways - to reach the results we aim for. Our vision is to become leaders in the fight for a healthier and more sustainable world. We do that by facilitating the discovery of new medicines, and by acting and inspiring others to fight against the ongoing climate and biodiversity crises. 

The Tissue Research department is primarily occupied with 3D imaging and histology on many different tissues such as brain, liver, kidney, heart, lung, and adipose tissue. We support our contract research organization (CRO) as well as our early target and drug discovery programs by conducting a broad variety of 3D Imaging and histological analyses. Our focus is on the metabolic science field within CNS, obesity, NASH, kidney diseases, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.  


You hold a Master degree in natural science and have interest for 3D Imaging and histology/histopathology within preclinical research. It will be an advantage if you have some hands-on experience with microscopes, general histological methods (tissue processing, histochemical staining, etc.) as well as some histopathological knowledge. It is also an advantage if you have experience with preclinical animal models.  

You are driven by teamwork and cross-functional collaboration to solve challenging research tasks in our dynamic and energetic organization. At Gubra, we strongly believe in advancing science by continuously testing our hypotheses and trying to answer scientific questions by conducting studies for both our CRO customers and our internally research projects.

  • Operation of our laboratory robots.  

  • Daily operations of our light sheet microscopes. 

  • Contribute to the daily study logistics 

  • Collaboration with scientists and technicians across the organization.  

At a later stage: 

  • Plan and run 3D Imaging studies including reporting and preparing scientific data presentations in collaboration with experienced colleagues. 

  • Advice and guide our CRO customers and internal research projects to obtain the most qualifying study designs. 



Professional and personal qualifications 

  • Master in natural sciences such as biology, human biology, biochemistry or similar. 

  • Keen to get new skills within 3D Imaging, and to support senior scientists in their daily tasks.  

  • Curious by nature, motivated by data and not afraid of technical challenges. 

  • Good planner and like to work with tight deadlines.  

  • Good communicator with stakeholder management skills. 

  • Able to navigate and collaborate in an energetic and rapidly changing organization.
