Biochemistry/Cryo-EM Postdoctoral Positions

The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota

We are looking for highly motivated candidates to join the lab of Drs. Zigang Dong and Anna Sundborger in the Cryo-EM and Molecular Biology Section. Projects focus on structure-function determination of macromolecular protein complexes involved in carcinogenesis and programmed cell death using Cryo-EM and single particle 3D reconstruction. For more information, please contact: (asundborger at hi.umn.edu <mailto:asundborger at hi.umn.edu>).

Qualifications A Ph.D. in Structural Biology, Biochemistry or a related field is required along with extensive experience in protein purification and Cryo-EM. Expertise in live cell imaging techniques is also highly appreciated. The candidate must demonstrate effective verbal and written communication skills and be able to work in a team of scientist from different backgrounds.        

About the Hormel Institute The new state-of-the-art Cryo-EM facility at the Hormel Institute is equipped with a FEI Titan Krios with phase plates and a Falcon 3 direct electron detector. There is also a FEI Tecnai BT and local GPU clusters for image processing. The Hormel Institute, a biomedical research center of the University of Minnesota, was established in 1942 and has a long reputation in producing world-class medical research. The Institute's research success has resulted in a second major expansion of its research facilities and includes a new state of the art laboratory building to open in 2016. The Hormel Institute offers its research scientists complete access to state of the art equipment that includes a FACS cell sorter; confocal microscopy; flow cytometry; protein crystallography robotics and diffraction system; nano-HPLC-AB SCIEX triple TOF 5600 mass spectrometry; and 3 racks of Linux GPU supercomputers for computational biology. *THE HORMEL INSTITUTE IS LOCATED IN AUSTIN, MN, APPROXIMATELY 35 MILES SOUTHWEST OF ROCHESTER, MN, AND APPROXIMATELY 100 MILES SOUTH OF MINNEAPOLIS/ST.
