Research Scientist Position in the Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility at
the New York Structural Biology Center
The New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) seeks an experienced
electron microscopist to join the staff of its Cryo-Electron Microscope
Facility (http://cryoem.nysbc.org). 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 and a dual-beam scanning electron microscope, which support
projects involving electron tomography, single particle analysis and
electron crystallography of both stained and frozen-hydrated samples.
Projects focus on 3D reconstruction of biological assemblies ranging
from the atomic structure of membrane proteins, to the subunit
organization in macromolecular complexes and the cellular anatomy of
developing organisms, to 3D reconstructions of entire cells and their
distributions within their native tissue using the dual-beam microscope.
To assist in these developments, NYSBC seeks an individual with
postdoctoral experience in biological electron microscopy and image
reconstruction. This individual will carry out experiments in support of
collaborative projects with affiliated investigators and will also have
opportunities to pursue independent research projects. The individual
should be capable of multitasking, should enjoy working with other
people, should have a good working knowledge of electron microscopes and
a strong research background. Good communication skills are essential.
To apply, please send a c.v. and the names of three references to
