How to get a user by email in a JIRA plugin

When writing a plugin for JIRA, how do you get a user, or just their username, given their email address?

It seems that you're supposed to use the findUsersByEmail method in the UserSearchService interface

But how do you get an instance of this class? Or a singleton of it?

UserSearcherHelper userSearcherHelper = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserSearcherHelper.class);
