Dear all,
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.

Best wishes,
