Postdoctoral positions in the Nicastro Lab at UTSW, Dallas
Two postdoctoral positions are available in the structural cell biology laboratory of Daniela Nicastro (www.utsouthwestern.edu/labs/nicastro)
at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW). Our laboratory uses a wide variety of methods (structural, genetic and biochemical) to study the 3D structure and function of molecular motors, cytoskeletal assemblies, such as cilia and flagella,
and other subcellular structures from host-virus interactions to cancer-relevant complexes.
Candidates should have a PhD in sciences, ideally previous experience
in structural biology and enjoy working as
part of an active research team. Of particular interest would be previous knowledge in one of the following techniques/topics: cryo-EM/ET, X-ray crystallography, FIB, cancer cell biology, virology or ciliate genetics.
Please apply by email to Dr. Nicastro [email@example.com]
include your CV, statement of research accomplishments and future goals, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to the same email address.
UTSW in Dallas has a state-of the
art cryo-EM facility (*) that includes a 300kV Titan Krios (with Gatan post-column energy filter) and a 200kV Talos Arctica, both equipped with K2 cameras and Volta phase-plates. In addition, we have a Scios cryo-FIB and accessory instrumentation such as CP3
and Vitrobot plunge-freezers, cryo-CLEM, a high-performance computing cluster. We also have access to an algae culture room, and a plethora of shared equipment and core facilities, including core facilities for x-ray crystallography and mass-spectrometry.
