On behalf of Professor Neil Ranson (Director of EM, Astbury BioStructure Laboratory)
A new 3-year BBSRC-funded position in my lab is now available. The project is to work on high resolution structures of new plant viruses using the state of the art cryo-EM facilities with the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds.
We hope that the project will generate a number of novel, near-atomic resolution structures, and it would therefore benefit from extensive experience of model building. As such, while I’d ideally like cryo-EM experience, the position would also be suitable for a good X-ray crystallographer with the drive and commitment to learn cryo-EM.
For more info, including a candidate brief and info on the Astbury Centre:
Please feel free to get in touch to discuss the position informally.
