[ccp4bb] postdoc opportunity in cryo-EM studies of viruses and viral proteins
We have an open postdoc fellowship in my group at Umeå University, Sweden.
The fellow will use cryo-EM (single particle and tomography) to study
the structures of virus particles as well as proteins involved in virus
replication. This project will explore two extremes of cryo-EM:
molecules previously considered too small for EM, and megadalton virus
particles where the infection-critical features break the symmetry of
the virus particle. The fellow will have ample access to our Titan Krios
Cryo-EM is a core method of our lab, and we will be able to provide
in-house training to motivated people with a different background. This
project could thus be ideal for a person with background in X-ray
crystallography and biochemistry eager to expand their methods scope to
single particle cryo-EM. Collaborations with internationally leading
virology labs are established.
For each project we provide a two-year fellowship with possibility of
