[ccp4bb] Two postdoc positions available at eBIC



Posted on behalf of Peijun Zhang...

Dear All,

Two postdoc positions are open at eBIC, the UK national cryoEM center at Diamond Light Source. For further information about these positions, please contact: Peijun Zhang Tel: +44 (0) 1235 77 8878 (office), E-mail: peijun.zhang@diamond.ac.uk.

 1. Cryo super-resolution Correlative Microscopy

We are seeking a highly motivated PDRA to carry out his/her own innovative research by developing and applying an integrative correlative microscopy workflow to address biological questions. The post holder will use cryo-SIM at B24 beamline (and further develop other means of) cryo super-resolution optical microscopy, with a Scios cryoFIB/SEM instrument and Titan Krios microscopes at Diamond, and set up novel experiments to push the boundaries of correlative microscopy. Important studies will be the investigation of pathogen and host cell interactions. In addition, the successful candidate will play an active role to assist users with their experiments in eBIC.

The post holder should have a PhD degree in structural biology or biophysics and have a demonstrated record of accomplishment in conducting high quality original research. Knowledge at postgraduate level in cryoEM/ET is essential and experience in fluorescence microscopy and live cell imaging is desirable.

2. CryoEM Method Development

We are seeking a highly motivated PDRA to develop and apply new cryoEM sample preparation methods. This position will allow using picolitre volume dispenser to make cryoEM specimen fast and reliably. Obtaining suitable cryoEM samples for high-resolution structural determination is currently one of the main bottlenecks in cryoEM. In addition, the successful candidate will play an active role in assisting users with their experiments at eBIC.

The post holder should have a PhD degree in physics/biophysics or engineering and have a demonstrated record of accomplishment in conducting high quality original research.
