A cryo-EM research scientist position at Indiana University Bloomington is available. This position is part of the IUB Electron Microscopy Center, which is a core facility that serves both the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses of Indiana University. The IUB-EMC currently has three Ph.D. level staff that manage five electron microscopes, including an FEI Teneo Volume Scope SBF-SEM, a JEOL 1010 TEM, a JEOL 1400plus cryo-TEM, a cryo-equipped JEOL 3200FS (S)TEM, and our most recent addition, an FEI Talos Arctica cryo-TEM. The JEOL 3200FS is equipped with a DE-64 direct electron detecting camera (DDD) while the Talos Artica has both a Falcon III and Gatan K3 DDD camera and Volta phase plates. Our current cryoEM applications include single particle cryo-EM and cryo-electron tomography. The Talos Artica will introduce micro electron diffraction to the campus.
