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
