[ccp4bb] postdoc fellowships available: in vitro reconstitution and cryo-EM
Two postdoc fellowships are available in my lab at Umeå University,
Sweden. The projects aim to decipher the molecular basis of human RNA
virus replication using in vitro membrane reconstitution and cryo-EM
(tomography of cells and single particle analysis).
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a background in
structural biology, biophysics, biochemistry or a related field. While
prior knowledge of cryo-electron microscopy or in vitro reconstitution
is beneficial, these are the core methods of the lab and we can thus
also provide a postdoc with in situ training specific to the project.
These projects may be a great opportunity for candidates with a
background in X-ray crystallography who want to expand their
Umeå has just completed the installation of a new cryo-EM facility
including a Titan Krios with a phase plate, energy filter and two direct
detectors, a Scios FIB/SEM and a Talos 120. Resources for biochemistry
and fluorescence microscopy are also excellent. Umeå is an outstanding
environment for molecular infection biology, including the Nordic EMBL
Node MIMS and the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine.
