The position advertised last August is still available (see below). Applications at the senior and junior level will be considered.
The Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology, McGill University (http://www.mcgill.ca/anatomy) invites applications for a senior-level, tenure-track faculty position in Structural Biology associated with the Facility for Electron Microscopy Research (http://www.medicine.mcgill.ca/femr). We seek candidates with notable research achievements and show a commitment to excellence in research and education. Candidates should have a Ph.D., postdoctoral experience and demonstrated ability to develop their own well-funded research program.
The applicant's research program should involve the application of electron cryomicroscopy to address novel structural questions relating to biochemistry, cell biology, membrane biology, microbiology, molecular biology, neurobiology, or other fields. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a program of correlative microscopy to integrate optical (light) and electron microscopy with a view to performing cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET). Experience in helical and/or 2D crystal reconstruction is also desirable. The position will be located in the Strathcona Anatomy & Dentistry Building, which houses a state-of-the-art electron microscopy facility. Current instruments include a FEI Titan Krios FE-S/TEM (300 kV with 4k x 4k CCD camera and GIF), a FEI Tecnai G2 F20 cryo-FE-S/TEM (200 kV with 4 k x 4k CCD camera, GIF and EDAX), FEI Tecnai 12 TEM (120 kV with 1k x 1k CCD camera) and a Philips CM200 HRTEM (200 kV with 2k x 2k CCD camera and EDAX) as well as advanced equipment for sample preparation.
