Dear List,

A vacancy for a microscopist in the Structural Virology Group of 
Purdue University is anticipated. This position is ideal for an 
individual interested in cryo-electron microscopy studies of viruses. 
The position will involve sample preparation, initial sample 
assessment, sample freezing, data collection, image analysis, 
three-dimensional modeling and interpretation.  The ideal candidate 
will be expected to be involved in all aspects of the research 
including publishing the results.  A BS with a major in biochemistry 
or a related area of biology and experience with transmission 
electron microscopy is considered a minimal requirement. Additional 
backgrounds in physics and computing along with a willingness to 
learn and the ability to balance multiple projects would be highly 
desirable. Employment will entail comprehensive
training during the first year and extensive daily interactions with 
a team of graduate students, post-doctoral scholars and 
faculty/staff. All levels of experience will be considered.  Please 
contact Paul Chipman (765-494-1487, paulrc at purdue.edu) for further 

Purdue University is located in West Lafayette, approximately 70 
miles north of Indianapolis and 120 miles south of Chicago.  As the 
major employer in the region with more than 10,000 faculty and staff, 
Purdue is also home to more than 38,000 students and extends a  true 
"university town" feel to the twin cities of Lafayette and West
