*Postdoc position in ion channel cryo-EM at Weill Cornell Medical College
in NYC*

A fully-funded postdoc position is available in the lab of Dr. Joel
Meyerson at the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCM) in NYC. The lab’s
research is focused on ion channel structure and function, and makes
extensive use of high-resolution single particle cryo-EM and sub-tomogram
averaging, along with an array of biochemical and biophysical methods.

WCM has exceptional cryo-EM facility access as a consortium member at the
New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) located a short distance from
the WCM campus in Manhattan. NYSBC resources include three Titan Krios
microscopes equipped with state-of-the-art imaging hardware. Additionally,
WCM will house an on-campus F20 cryo-electron microscope.

Applicants should hold a PhD (or be within ~6 months of holding a PhD) in
the area of biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology or a related area.
The ideal candidate will have experience in membrane protein biochemistry.
No cryo-EM experience is necessary.

Applicants can send a CV, a brief statement of research experience and
interests, as well as 2-3 contacts for references to joel.meyerson [at]
gmail [dot] com.
