Dear All,

Postdoc positions are available in our lab at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in three possible research areas. 

1. On the development of high-resolution subtomogram averaging approaches, including data collection and image processing, especially as applied to the structure of HIV. The candidate should have experience in cryo-EM and image processing.

2. On the assembly and structure of influenza virus using cryo-electron microscopy, correlative microscopy and fluorescence microscopy. The candidate should have experience in cryo-EM, electron tomography, or fluorescence microscopy as applied to viruses.

3. On the development of correlative cryo-fluorescence microscopy methods (in collaboration with industry). The ideal candidate would have experience in fluorescence microscopy with a focus on methodology.

The work will be carried out with access to the outstanding facilities at EMBL, including Titan Krios, Polara and other cryo-electron microscopes, direct detectors, state of the art cryo-fluorescence microscopy, the advanced light microscopy facility, high performance computing and wide ranging biological facilities. EMBL is Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences and is an exciting, international, dynamic place to work. 

Please contact me for further information,

John Briggs
