Dear colleagues,

Our lab is currently looking to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate with an interest in structural biology of macromolecular assemblies.  Candidates with experience in single particle cryo-EM are particularly encouraged to apply, but this is not essential and we can provide training for those with an interest in single particle cryo-EM but limited hands-on experience.


The position is funded for an initial period of 3 years by an Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant and is focused on the characterisation of bacterial pore-forming toxin complexes from the ABC toxin family.  The successful candidate will be based in the research group of Dr Michael Landsberg at the University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia.

Brisbane is a fantastic place to live and work as a scientist.  It is the state capital of Queensland and Australia's third largest city with a population of 2.3 million people.  Brisbane has a warm, sub-tropical climate and averages more than 300 days of sunshine per year, and is located less than an hour's drive to the famous beaches of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast to the north and the Gold Coast to the south.  Postdoctoral scientists in Australia enjoy internationally-competitive salaries with attractive employment benefits (see the advertisement for more details).

UQ is a research-intensive University ranked as one of Australia's best by most widely-recognised, independent criteria.  UQ has a vibrant structural biology community that leverages substantial core infrastructure in X-ray crystallography, NMR and cryo-EM.  EM infrastructure on campus is maintained and supported centrally by the Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis and currently comprises 17 electron microscopes and supporting instrumentation, including an FEI Tecnai F30 with Gatan K2 direct detection device, a cryo-equipped Tecnai T12 equipped with Direct Electron lens-coupled CCD, several smaller screening microscopes and ancillary equipment for single particle cryo-EM, as well as an FEI Scios DualBeam FIBSEM and a Gatan 3View SBFSEM system.  We also have access to automated instruments (e.g. Titan Krios) at other institutions for high volume data collection and a near-term strategy for upgrading UQ's current cryo-EM facilities is in place.

All candidates must complete a formal application online, which can be accessed from the link above.  Enquiries are welcome and can be directed to Dr Michael Landsberg.

Best regards
