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.
