The Lyumkis Laboratory applies cryo-EM methods for structure determination of macromolecular assemblies involved in viral infection and chromatin regulation. The Manor Laboratory at the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center applies advanced imaging probes and microscopy techniques to visualize the inner workings of cells. We are seeking two postdoctoral candidates to work jointly with us, in conjunction with the cryo-EM facility at The Scripps Research Institute, to develop and apply novel imaging and analysis pipelines for coupling live cell dynamics with focused ion beam milling, cryo-ET, and image analysis of macromolecular assemblies in situ.
Ideal Candidate (cryo-EM):
Ideal Candidate (live cell imaging):
The postdoctoral associates will be working as part of a small team, with technical staff support, to develop new directions in cryo-CLEM and cryo-ET with applications to exciting problems in biology.
Credentials and Qualifications:
Ph.D. in Biophysics, Cellular/Molecular Structural Biology, or related fields with proven track record of productivity in form of publication in reputable journals. Hands-on-experience in laboratory research and robust computer skills are required.
