[ccp4bb] Two open positions in structural cell biology at UC-davis

Dear Colleagues, 

I am recruiting for two positions in my laboratory (http://microtubule.mcb.ucdavis.edu) at the University of California, Davis.  Our Laboratory is focused on structural mechanisms of molecular machines that regulate tubulin heterodimer biogenesis, dynamic microtubule polymerization, and mechanisms of mitotic kinesin motor proteins. There are well-developed projects in our laboratory to elucidate mechanisms of these multi-subunit complexes using the biochemical reconstitution, cryo-EM and / or x-ray crystallography and validate these mechanisms using single molecule fluorescence reconstitution with microtubules.  

Our laboratory has extensive setups for protein production, biochemical characterization, x-ray crystallography, full access to a cryo-EM sample preparation setup, a semi-automated side-entry JEOL 2100F for sample screening, and an automated 200 KV Glacios equipped with an autoloader and a Gatan K3 detector.  UC-Davis is a member of the Bay Area Cryo-EM consortium with monthly access to Titan Krios microscopes for high-resolution data collection.  for example multi-disciplinary studies: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Al-bassam+J, https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/713909v2

Assistant Project Scientist:
The suitable candidates should have a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or biophysics and has successfully completed postdoctoral training in either single particle cryo-EM and/or x-ray crystallography with extensive expertise in molecular cloning, recombinant protein production and purification using bacteria, and insect or mammalian _expression_ systems:  https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF03202

Postdoctoral fellow:
The suitable candidates should have a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry or biophysics with expertise in either single particle cryo-EM and/or x-ray crystallography, molecular cloning, recombinant protein production and purification using bacteria, and insect or mammalian _expression_ systems: https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF03203

 Please send any informal inquiries to jawdat@ucdavis.edu. Please include a cover letter, CV, statement of research accomplishments, and two to three reference letters.
