Position available for an experienced staff scientist (or postdoc) to perform single particle cryoEM studies on proteins relevant for viral hemorrhagic fever pathogenesis and medical defense.

You will have primary responsibility for data collection and oversight of a dedicated 300 keV Titan Halo with a Falcon 2 direct detector and for training of incoming students to the lab.
In particular, we are looking for someone with strong interest and expertise in instrumentation, good communication skills, and a collaborative spirit who could pursue their own projects and assist those of others.

Our lab studies the proteins of viruses like Ebola, Marburg and Lassa, using structural biology and cellular analysis to understand how the very few proteins encoded by these viruses achieve a tremendous array of functions through the virus life cycle. Although we are primarily a structural biology lab ourselves, we direct a five-continent collaboration of academic, industrial and government scientists and clinicians. Hence, there is the opportunity here to see how the structures fit into the cellular, organismal and population contexts and to use structural biology as a roadmap to devlop much-needed vaccines and therapeutics.

Applications should be sent via email to erica at scripps.edu<mailto:erica at scripps.edu> and should include a c.v., list of publications, names of references and a letter of interest. If you have any questions, just email me!
