EM scientist, EM technician, Image Processing Scientist, and Post-doc
positions in Dr. Grant Jensen's laboratory at CalTech

I am establishing a new cryoEM lab at the California Institute of
Technology (CalTech) and seek individuals interested in any of the four
well-funded positions described below.  Lab projects include single
particle analysis of a variety of purifiable protein complexes as well
as electron tomography of other unique biological structures.  The lab
will be equipped with a 300kV, FEG, helium-cooled, energy-filtered, and
fully automated TEM as well as a specimen screening microscope and all
other necessary ancillary equipment.  A full wet lab is available for
sample preparation, and image processing will proceed on the CalTech
Structural Biology Supercomputers and supporting workstations.  Lab
members will enjoy collaborations with a unique community of structural
biologists that includes active engineers and physicists.  CalTech is
located in Pasadena, California, next to the San Gabriel mountains, and
offers a rich mixture of urban as well as outdoor activities.
Interested individuals should send a resume and names of three
references to jensen at  In all cases salary will be
commensurate with experience.

EM Scientist
    A Ph.D. scientist or highly trained and experienced individual is
sought to operate, maintain, and supervise student use of the
state-of-the-art cryoEMs in the lab.  This scientist will assist in
developing automated data collection protocols and help manage the
entire EM facility.

EM technician
    An individual with a bachelor's degree in science or engineering or
specific training in electron microscopy is sought to operate the
state-of-the-art microscopes collecting data on a number of high profile

scientific projects.  Training could be provided.

Image Processing Scientist
    A mathematically talented individual with programming experience is
sought to develop, code (where necessary), and execute novel image
processing protocols on the CalTech Structural Biology Supercomputer and

associated workstations, as well as assist students doing the same.

Post-doctoral scientist
    A variety of single-particle and tomographic projects are available
and can be tailored to meet individual interests.
