Interested in exploring the world of molecular espionage? Want to find out how viruses hitchhike between organelles during assembly? Join Prof Saif Hasan lab as a post-doctoral researcher to decipher the secret life of epidemic causing viruses at the atomic scale. They use high-resolution single particle cryoEM and X-ray crystallography to investigate how viruses such as Dengue, SARS-CoV-2, and pox viruses take over host membranes during intra-cellular progeny assembly.
They are located in Rockville MD in the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research which is 20 miles north-west of Washington DC. In IBBR, you will have in-house access to a 200 keV Talos Arctica with a Falcon 3EC DED and a 200 keV Glacios with a K3 DED and a Volta Phase Plate (VPP). They have off-site access to a Titan Krios microscope equipped with DED and VPP. For X-ray crystallography, they have access to a Mosquito crystallization robot. Data collection is usually performed at synchrotrons. Our research is highly collaborative and is supported by wonderful colleagues who help us out with their expertise in NMR spectroscopy, lipidomics, HDX-MS, MD simulations, computer assisted drug design, and cellular imaging.
