Positions Available: Electron Crystallography of Membrane Proteins

A number of different positions are available with the Transcontinental Electron Microscopy Initiative for Membrane Protein Structure (TEMIMPS;http://temimps.nysbc.org). TEMIMPS is a new center funded by the NIH Protein Structure Initiative and is composed of five research groups with combined expertise in membrane protein production, 2D crystallization, electron microscopy, image processing, and structure determination. Our center will focus on the development and implementation of high-throughput and high-resolution approaches to structure determination of membrane proteins using cryo-electron microscopy and 2D crystals. We are seeking highly motivated individuals with good communication skills and ability to interact with an interdisciplinary group ranging from biochemists to mathematicians. Individual positions will be available in New YorkClevelandSeattle and Houston, working in the laboratories of Drs. David Stokes, Iban Ubarretxena, Andreas Engel, Tamir Gonen and Pawel Penczek. These positions include a project manager, postdoctoral associates, software engineers and technical staff;  up-to-date descriptions of the individual positions can be obtained at http://temimps.nysbc.org/jobs. Further questions or applications should be sent to temimps@nysbc.org.  Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae and contact information for three referees. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and will continue until the positions are filled.
