> Posting submitted by Dr. Susan Hafenstein, Dr. Scott Lindner, & Dr. Phil Bevilacqua : 
> The Hafenstein, Lindner, and Bevilacqua Labs at The Pennsylvania State University have a recent NIH-funded project to focus on Cryo-EM structural studies of medically relevant proteins from the malaria parasite (Plasmodium), virus and host interactions, RNA structural biology, and tech development. We are recruiting an outstanding post-doctoral scholar. Candidates should be willing to learn and become an expert in all aspects of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Cryo-EM, including sample preparation, instrument use, data processing and structural analysis. Preferred candidates will have conceptual and practical experience with TEM and Cryo EM experimental (sample preparation/screening/vitrification) and computational (RELION, cryoSPARC) approaches. Post Doctoral Researcher will benefit from access to a state-of-the-art Titan Krios microscope with on-site experimental and computational infrastructure and support. Our labs are part of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the main campus of Penn State University (University Park, PA), and also have direct ties to the College of Medicine (Hershey, PA). We are also a part of the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics (CIDD) and part of the Center for Malaria Research (CMaR) at Penn State. The successful candidate will be offered competitive salary and benefits packages, as well as considerable professional development opportunities. Candidate must submit/upload a letter of interest, along with CV, a brief description of career goals, and the names and contact information for three scientific/professional references. This position requires a doctoral (Ph.D.) degree or higher in a scientific discipline. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire with excellent possibility of re-funding. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
