[ccp4bb] Academic position in cryoEM at The University of York

The Department of Chemistry at The University of York is seeking to appoint a high-calibre researcher in cryo-electron microscopy, with a clear vision to lead their own programme of excellent research within the York Structural Biology Laboratory (YSBL). Your research will complement the X-ray crystallography and NMR techniques currently used in the YSBL, and will bridge the gap between X-ray work and the optical microscopy in the Biology Technology Facility. The role is available at any level and we welcome interest from talented academics with an impressive research profile appropriate to the level of application and a collegiate approach to their work.

You will be a dynamic research leader with a consistent track record in the application of cryo-electron microscopy to challenging biochemical/biological problems. We welcome applications from researchers with an interest in diverse areas of structural and cell biology, with particular interest in those working on mammalian systems. You'll join a department renowned internationally for its research. Combined with a dedication to high-quality teaching and excellent student satisfaction, we are recognised consistently for our family-friendly policies and are proud of our Athena SWAN Gold Award.
