To apply: Please send a cover letter, CV and names of 3 references to: Adriana.Heguy@nyulangone.org

The NYU Cryo-EM Core is looking for staff scientists. The facility is a state-of-the-art shared resource for biomedical researchers. The Cryo-EM staff members develop and provide their knowledge and expertise to the research community at NYU Langone in applying cryo-EM imaging to their research. Specific responsibilities include operation of the existing two cryo-electron microscopes and ancillary equipment for sample preparation, as well as maintaining accurate logs/records for microscope performance, usage and service, as well development and updating of Standard Operating Procedures. The successful candidate will be expected to learn new procedures as they are developed and implemented by the core. Good communication skills and an open, collaborative attitude are a must. This facility will be optimized for high throughput data collection, thus fitting into a pipeline that maximizes the efficiency and productivity will be a key part of this job. The NYU research community includes inexperienced groups with potential cryo-EM projects. This job requires the implementation of training plans and providing support and advice to inexperienced users during the initial phase of their projects. 

Preferred Qualifications:

  • M.S in structural biology, biochemistry or related field, Ph.D. would be a plus.
  • 2-3 years of experience in EM including handling samples, using microscopes and evaluation of images; cryo EM experience preferred but not required; experience with Arctica or Krios would be bonus 
  • Knowledge of the principles of transmission electron microscopy and 3D structure determination 
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills
