The microscopist is responsible for oversight, maintenance and optimization of an electron microscope and direct electron detector. Responsibilities will include operation of the equipment, training of students and postdocs, collection of data, and preparation of biological samples for cryo-electron microscopy and other related duties and tasks as required or assigned.
|Additional Information:|| |
Lab studies the proteins of viruses like Ebola, Marburg and Lassa, using structural biology and cellular analysis to understand how the very few proteins encoded by these viruses achieve a tremendous array of functions throughout the virus life cycle. Although the lab is primarily a structural biology lab, we direct a five-continent collaboration of academic, industrial and government scientists and clinicians. Hence, there is the unique opportunity here to see how the structures fit into the cellular, organismal and population contexts and to use structural biology as a roadmap to help develop much-needed vaccines and therapeutics.
