The Section of Structural Biology within the Department of Medicine along with its partners (The London Consortium
for cryo-EM) is seeking to recruit a Facility Manager for a new high resolution Electron
Imperial College London, in partnership with the Institute of Cancer Research, King’s College London, and Queen Mary - University
of London, has been awarded funding by the Wellcome Trust to establish a new Electron Microscopy Facility to be hosted by the Francis Crick Institute near King’s Cross, which has already established its own cryo-EM facility. The new Facility will include
a FEI Titan Krios cryo electron microscope equipped with a Volta phase plate, a Falcoln III detector and a Gatan Bioquantum energy filter and K3 detector. It will offer state of the art electron cryo-microscopy for high-resolution structural determination.
The post holder will be responsible for the day-to-day running and management of the new Facility. This will include helping users
access the facility for data collection, advising users on sample preparation and quality and helping manage time allocation within the consortium. The Facility Manager will ensure that all users receive adequate training, comply with all health and safety
requirements, and provide assistance with the development of research projects and analysis of results.
This exciting and challenging post requires a strong and diverse skill set. In depth knowledge and practical experience of high resolution electron cryo-microscopy
single particle analysis and/or electron cryo-tomography as applied to biological systems is essential. In addition, given the collaborative nature of the project, you will need the ability to develop effective working relationships with colleagues at all
levels across different institutions and therefore have strong communication skills. Organisation skills, and the ability to work efficiently and accurately under pressure are also essential.
The Department has an established culture of supporting and developing staff. You will be rewarded with generous benefits and strong career prospects within
well-defined and achievable career paths. For an informal discussion please contact Prof. Xiaodong Zhang: email@example.com
