  • Postdoc

    An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available

    You will be working on high-resolution structural studies of viruses, proteins complexes and filaments using cryo-EM. The Cryo-EM Facility is well equipped and it includes a Titan Krios with energy filter, K2 direct electron detector (to be upgraded to K3 in Q1 2019), and Volta phase plate. Candidates with strong background in structural biology, biophysics, or computational biology are encouraged to apply. Prior experiences in cryo-EM sample preparation, data collection, and data analysis will be an advantage but not essential.

    Please send CV, statement of research interests, and three references to Dr. Wen Jiang (jiang12#purdue.edu).
