A postdoctoral position is now open in the Egelman lab at the University of Virginia. We have been using cryo-EM to study the structure and function of a large range of protein and nucleoprotein polymers. These projects have included type IV pili of pathogenic bacteria and archaea, flagellar filaments, actin, microbial nanowires and archaeal viruses. Some representative recent publications are listed below. A full publication list can be found at https://egelmanlab.org. Prior experience in cryo-EM is helpful, but not essential, as candidates who have had experience in structure determination using techniques such as x-ray crystallography or NMR will also be considered.
Facilities at UVA are state-of-the-art, with a Titan Krios equipped with a K3 camera and a Glacios equipped with a Falcon 4 camera. Charlottesville is a rather idyllic community set next to the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains and we are two hours away from Washington, DC. Applicants should write to Ed Egelman, firstname.lastname@example.org, and include a CV and the names and email addresses of three references.
