Staff position in the EM Facility at New York Structural Biology Center
The New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) seeks an experienced
electron microscopist to join the staff of its cryo-EM facility. The
NYSBC is a shared center that supports state-of-the-art research in
cryo-EM, NMR, and X-ray crystallography. Cryo-EM facilities include four
transmission electron microscopes, one dual-beam FIB/SEM, and related
support equipment for grid preparation, high pressure freezing, and
sectioning. In general, projects focus on 3D reconstruction of
biological assemblies, such as the atomic structure of membrane
proteins, subunit organization of macromolecular complexes, and cellular
anatomy of various tissues. The individual will carry out experiments in
support of collaborative projects with affiliated investigators,
including EM sample preparation, data collection, and image processing.
Day to day duties include setup and maintenance of electron microscopes,
training and assisting users from NYSBC's nine Member Institutions, and
record keeping. The individual should be capable of multitasking and
enjoy working with other people. Good communication skills are
essential. Qualified applicants should send a curriculum vitae and names
of three references to David Stokes (_stokes at nysbc.org
<mailto:stokes at nysbc.org>_). Salary and job title will be commensurate
with experience. A Ph. D. is desirable but not essential for this
position. The position is currently open and applications will be
reviewed continuously until the position is filled.
