I am posting the following information on behalf of Professor Hong Li, IMB, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL. All inquiries should be sent directly to her. Thanks.
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in Dr. Hong Li’s laboratory at the Institute of Molecular Biophysics, Florida State University to study nucleic acids-protein interactions by cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM) and other complementary methods. Dr. Li is seeking one candidate with strong backgrounds in structural biology, especially cryo-EM or X-ray crystallography.
Dr. Hong Li’s laboratory is located in the Institute of Molecular Biophysics at Florida State University. The laboratory has direct access to a diverse range of biophysical techniques including cryoEM, NMR, ESR, CD, ITC, Mass Spectrometry and X-ray crystallography. FSU has recently become the NIH Center for Electron Microscopy of the southeast region, housing an FEI Titan Krios microscope equipped with a Phase Plate, a K3 Summit direct electron camera (to be installed) and High Performance Computing capabilities. For X-ray diffraction experiments, the laboratory has monthly access to the Advanced Photon Source SER-CAT beamlines through remote data collection. In addition, the laboratory is fully equipped to perform molecular cloning, protein chromatography (Akta-FPLC), and necessary enzymatic assays. The Institute of Molecular Biophysics has a major focus on structural biology hosting four cryoEM, two X-ray crystallography, two theoretical computing, and two spectroscopy groups, which allows anyone within the Institute seamlessly integrate these structural biology methods.
Tallahassee is the capital for the state of Florida and is about 1.5 hour drive to the beautiful beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. The capital city also has variety of music, athletic, theater, and film activities offered by the world-class teams and the school of music and arts.
The standard NIH annual salary for the postdoctoral fellow starts at $47,659 with full health and retirement benefits that can be increased annually upon satisfactory evaluation. Interested candidates should send a recent CV, three names of references to
