Postdoc position in cryo-electron microscopy at Purdue University, USA
Description : A postdoc position is available in the Jiang laboratory at the Markey Center of Structural Biology and Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA. Our research focuses on structural biology of large macromolecular complexes and viruses using single particle cryo-electron microscopy and 3-D reconstruction. Purdue is well equipped with two FEI FEG cryo-microscopes (200kV and 300kV) and will install a new 300kV liquid Helium microscope in 2009. Motivated postdoc is sought to participate in experimental aspects of our continued push of single particle cryo-EM 3-D reconstructions towards 3-3.5 Å resolution. Candidates skilled in high resolution transmission electron microscopy are encouraged to apply. Experience in specimen preparation and low dose cryo-EM imaging of biological samples is preferred. The applicant should also be a team player that enjoys working in a collaborative environment. Please send CV, statement of research accomplishments and interests, and three references to Dr. Wen Jiang ([email protected]).
