eBIC (the Electron Bio-Imaging Centre based at Diamond) provides scientists with state-of-the-art experimental equipment and expertise in the field of cryo-electron microscopy, for single particle analysis cryo-tomography and electron crystallography. Currently eBIC houses four Titan Krios microscopes, a Talos Arctica, Scios and Aquilos cryo-FIB/SEM, and additional Krios and Glacios for industry applications.
About the Role
A highly motivated PDRA is sought to carry out there own innovative research by developing and applying an integrative correlative microscopy workflow to address biological questions. You will use optical microscopes (cryoSIM and cryoCLEM), with Scios/Aquilos cryoFIB/SEM instrument and Krios microscopes at Diamond, and set up novel experiments to push the boundaries of correlative microscopy with cryo-super-resolution. Important studies will be the investigation of pathogen and host cell interactions.
In addition, the successful candidate will play an active role to assist users with their experiments in eBIC.
You should have a PhD degree in structural biology or biophysics and have a demonstrated record of accomplishment in conducting high quality original research. Knowledge at postgraduate level in cryoEM/ET is essential and experience in fluorescence microscopy and live cell imaging is desirable.
