[ccp4bb] CryoEM Post-Doctoral Position

Interested in exploring the world of molecular espionage? Want to find out how viruses hitchhike between organelles during assembly? Join my lab as a post-doctoral researcher to decipher the secret life of epidemic causing viruses at the atomic scale. We use high-resolution single particle cryoEM and X-ray crystallography to investigate how viruses such as Dengue, SARS-CoV-2, and pox viruses take over host membranes during intra-cellular progeny assembly. 

We are located in Rockville MD in the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR; https://www.ibbr.umd.edu/profiles/s-saif-hasan), which is 20 miles north-west of Washington DC. In IBBR, you will have in-house access to a 200 keV Talos Arctica with a Falcon 3EC DED and a 200 keV Glacios with a K3 DED and a Volta Phase Plate (VPP). We have off-site access to a Titan Krios microscope equipped with DED and VPP. For X-ray crystallography, we have access to a Mosquito crystallization robot. Data collection is usually performed at synchrotrons. Our research is highly collaborative and is supported by wonderful colleagues who help us out with their expertise in NMR spectroscopy, lipidomics, HDX-MS, MD simulations, computer assisted drug design, and cellular imaging.

If you are interested, send me your CV. Lets talk.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Minorities, women, individuals with disabilities and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
