A post-doctoral research position is high-resolution single particle cryoEM is available immediately in my laboratory at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR; https://www.ibbr.umd.edu/profiles/s-saif-hasan) in Rockville MD. The post-doctoral researcher will have a choice of multiple projects in structural biology of membrane protein complexes involved in cancer and viral pathogenesis. The researcher will have the independence to guide the direction of their research and to pursue novel ideas should she/he find an interesting scientific question related to the general focus of my laboratory.
IBBR is home to a large community of structural biologists. Our new cryoEM facility houses a 200 keV Thermo Fisher Talos Arctica microscope equipped with a Gatan K3 direct electron detector. A 200 keV Thermo Fisher Glacios microscope equipped with a Falcon III direct electron detector will be acquired soon. A 120 keV FEI Tecnai T12 TEM equipped with a CCD camera is available for negative stain imaging. In addition to the latest cryoEM facilities, IBBR offers access to tools in X-ray crystallography, NMR, small angle X-ray scattering, mass-spectrometry and computational biology, and provides opportunities to work closely in collaboration with scientists in industry and in national labs located nearby (i.e., NIH, NIST).
Applicants should have experience in sample preparation, data collection and data processing for single particle cryoEM. Applicants who have received their PhD or MD/PhD degree should email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) a single PDF file containing a short cover letter (no more than one page), a detailed curriculum vitae, contact information for three references, and up to 3 reprints of representative first authorship publication(s).
