POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW POSITION, EMORY UNIVERSITY
NIH-funded positions are available in the Wright laboratory at Emory University (http://electronmicroscopy.emory.edu). Research in the lab is focused on bacterial and viral structural biology, with emphasis on 3-D structure/function relationships between host cells and viruses. Areas of interest include cryo-electron tomography of bacteria, bacteria – bacteriophage interactions, paramyxoviruses, and HIV-1. Technology development interests are in the areas of correlative microscopy and phase plate cryo-microscopy.
The wet laboratory is within the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and is fully equipped for all aspects of microbiology, molecular biology, molecular virology, and protein biochemistry. The Wright lab is equipped with a JEOL JEM-2200FS 200 kV FEG TEM with an in-column energy filter, Zernike-style phase plates, and Gatan 4kx4k CCD camera; a JEOL JEM-1400 120 kV TEM with Gatan 2kx2k CCD camera; an FEI Vitrobot, a Gatan CP3 and a manual grid plunge freezer; a Bal-Tec high pressure freezer and Leica freeze substitution system; a Leica cryo-ultramicrotome; an Improvision spinning disk confocal microscope; and a Zeiss TIRF microscope. Emory is a vibrant, multidisciplinary campus with strong ties to Georgia Tech and other universities within Georgia. Access to facilities in NMR, Mass Spectrometry, and X-ray crystallography are available.
Candidates should have an interest in structural biology, bacteriology or virology; excellent communication skills; and should enjoy working as part of a dynamic and collaborative research team. Background experience in one (or more) of the following fields is desirable: bacteriology, virology, (cryo-) electron microscopy, and/or image processing/analysis techniques.
Applicants should include a cover letter describing research experience and interests, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information for three references.
