Postdoc and PhD Student Positions in Electron Microscopy

Applications are invited for two open positions in the laboratory of 
Haixin Sui in the Wadsworth Center, Albany, NY. One opening is for a 
postdoctoral fellow starting in September of 2008. The other is for a 
Ph.D. student starting in the spring or fall of 2009. These are funded 
positions administered by Health Research, Inc.

The lab conducts research using structural approaches on cell biology 
questions that are disease-relevant. Our current interest is focused on 
the structural analysis of cytoskeleton and membrane protein complexes 
involved in motility and the signaling functions of eukaryotic flagella. 
The approaches used in the lab range widely and include molecular 
techniques, protein biochemistry, and structural approaches with an 
emphasis on advanced electron cryo-microscopy. The lab is located in the 
Wadsworth Center which is a comprehensive state laboratory of public 
health fostering innovative health-related research since 1901 
(www.wadsworth.org). The electron microscopy program at the Center 
enjoys an international reputation on 3D-EM methodology development and 

• Postdoc position - a Ph.D. degree in molecular cell biology, 
biochemistry or related discipline is required. The ideal candidate is 
expected to have extensive experience in molecular techniques, cell 
culture, protein expression and purification, and a solid background in 
structural biology. Experience in electron cryo-microscopy is desired 
but is not essential.

• Ph.D. student position - interdisciplinary applications are 
particularly encouraged for people holding a Bachelor or Master degree 
in fields of engineering and physics such as solid state physics, 
materials science, and chemistry. Candidates with a background in 
biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology or related disciplines are 
also welcome. Applications from people with computer science background 
focused on computer graphics or digital signal processing will also be 
considered. The student will receive comprehensive training in cell 
molecular biology and advanced structural biology, and will conduct 
his/her research in an excellent working environment at the Wadsworth 

Interested individuals should submit a cover letter describing research 
experience and interests, curriculum vitae, and names and contact 
information of three references to:
