Two postdoc fellowships are available in my lab at Umeå University,
Sweden. The projects aim to decipher the molecular basis of human RNA
virus replication using cryo-EM (tomography of cells and single particle
analysis) and in vitro membrane reconstitution.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a background in
structural biology, biophysics, biochemistry or a related field. While
prior knowledge of cryo-electron microscopy or in vitro reconstitution
is beneficial, these are the core methods of the lab and we can thus
also provide a postdoc with in situ training specific to the project.
Umeå has just completed the installation of a new EM facility including
a Titan Krios with a phase plate, Falcon III, GIF and K2 Summit, a Scios
FIB/SEM and a Talos 120. Umeå is also an outstanding environment for
molecular infection biology, including the Nordic EMBL Node MIMS and the
Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine.
