University of Bristol seek an enthusiastic Research Associate specialised in high resolution electron microscopy data processing to join the team of Dr. Ariel Blocker on a project funded by a 4-year Wellcome Trust Investigator Award to Dr. Ariel Blocker entitled “Molecular mechanisms powering a bacterial injection device”.
The Research Associate will collaborate tightly with two PhD students midway through their theses who are overexpressing and purifying the fT3SS IMEA for electron microscopy and single particle analysis and investigating the architecture of the vT3SS  in different states of secretion by cryo electron tomography.
The post is funded for 22 to 24 months and will be held primarily within the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine in Bristol.
