Dear All:

The Elmlund laboratory (http://simplecryoem.com), Monash University,
Melbourne, develops methods for single particle electron microscopy and
conducts an integrative structural biology research program, focussing on
two master regulators of Eukaryotic transcription: TFIID and SAGA. Our
biological aims are to understand how the mechanisms for transcription
initiation and start-site selection differ between constitutively
transcribed (housekeeping) and stress-inducible genes by studying the large
but transient protein-protein and protein-DNA complexes involved using a
combination of techniques, including cryo-EM, mass-spectrometry and
biochemical assays. We have three positions available:

(1) Postdoctoral fellow   (molecular basis of stress-inducible gene
(2) Postdoctoral fellow   (transcription coupled chromatin remodeling)
(3) Scientific programmer (image processing for single-particle cryo-EM)

Monash University is a leading research university in Australia that
received a rank of 67 worldwide in the 2015/16 report from QS world
university rankings. State-of-the-art technology is available to the
Project via Monash’s research platform strategy, with The Clive and Vera
Ramaciotti Centre for Structural Cryo-EM housing a Titan KRIOS with K2
detector, energy filter and Volta phase plate. Extensive computational
infrastructure is available to the project via the MASSIVE3 supercomputer (
https://www.massive.org.au/). The excellent structural biology community
surrounding the facility, the nearby Australian Synchrotron and other major
research programs, such as the ARC Centre of Excellence in Advanced
Molecular Imaging (led from Monash), provides a unique opportunity to
execute the projects.

We would appreciate if you could share this announcement with suitably
skilled and interested scientists in your network.
