We are seeking a talented, motivated and highly interactive individual to work in a multidisciplinary sctructural team at OHSU. Included at the OHSU's EM facility are three TEMs, a Tecnai T12 Biotwin with iCorr, a T12 Spirit Biotwin and a Titan Krios microscope, the latter of which is outfitted with a Falcon II, post GIF K2 and volta phase plate technologies. Soon the facility will also house a Talos Arctica with autoloader and K2 camera. This core facility also has all standard equipment for sample preparation. The OHSU structural effort is quickly growing at OHSU, and is aided in its mission by strong collaborative ties with FEI and Intel. The candidate will be a crucial part in helping further expand and knit this community together.
The successful candidate will assist in the day-to-day running of the facility, general lab maintenance, sample preparation, user training, large-data set acquisition for single particle studies, tomography acquisition, and managing the recharge mechanism including supplies deliveries, scheduling and billing, and facilities infrastrucure for the instruments.
The candidate will be expected to help maintain a smooth and efficient working environment by collaborating with internal and external users and assisting with training and support. This includes troubleshooting sample preparations and helping with long semi-automated data collection runs. The candiate will be responsible for the installation and testing of new software for cryo-EM image acquisition and analysis, as well as to the investigation, acquisition and testing of new, microscope-related hardware. The candidate will have the opportunity to participate in weekly EM-related seminars, to teach the theory and practice of electron microscopy, and to collaborate with researchers pursuing TEM-focused research projects. The candidate will support resource development and the development of grant applications for funding of these platforms.
For consideration, please upload a cover letter and CV/resume, along with 3 professional references who can speak to your experiences and abilities. Please visit the OHSU job website http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/about/services/human-resources/ for more details about this job position (IRC55066).
