A 3-year postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Peter Rosenthal at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research to study the structure and function of macromolecular assemblies by single particle cryomicroscopy or cryotomography. Project areas include (1) studies of the high resolution architecture and dynamics of mammalian cells in vivo (2) structure and assembly of lipid-enveloped viruses (3) high resolution studies of protein complexes and macromolecular machines. The laboratory is also interested in the development of new experimental or computational methods in cryomicroscopy relevant to these project areas. Excellent facilities for biochemistry, light microscopy, computation, and electron microscopy are available, including a 120 keV cryomicroscope and a 300 keV field emission gun microscope (G2 Polara).
Your application, along with a covering letter and full CV, should be made online quoting ref:IRC122554
This Postdoctoral Scientist position is a 3 year fixed-term MRC funded Career Development Fellowship (CDF). CDFs are training and development positions for postdoctoral scientists who have either recently completed their doctoral studies, are moving into a new research discipline, have limited previous experience of key transferable skills, or are clinically qualified with little or no research experience. They provide opportunities to develop research project skills and develop collaborative links with colleagues within the Institute and elsewhere.
