POSITION TYPE Continuing Full Time Appointment
CLOSING 4 December 2016
REF NO. 25910
The University of Wollongong is a young, research-focused university on the coast of south eastern Australia, an hour from Sydney and surrounded by natural beauty. We are looking for a technically skilled cryo-electron microscopist with experience in structural biology to play a key role in establishing a world-class cryo-electron microscopy research group and facility.
We are investing $80 million in the establishment of a multidisciplinary research institute, Molecular Horizons, focused on the visualisation of the molecular mechanisms of life. By co-locating talented researchers with backgrounds in the physical, chemical and biological sciences and by providing them with cutting-edge infrastructure, the University is committed to making an impact in the molecular life sciences.
Our initial investment in cryo-EM infrastructure includes a Talos Arctica and a Titan Krios. This position has the primary purpose of leading and conducting research using these platforms as it relates to basic aspects of structure and function of biological macromolecular complexes and in a broader sense, as it is relevant to health and medicine. Applicants with experience in cryo-EM, plus single-particle analysis and/or electron tomography will be considered.
Candidates must address the selection criteria specified in the position description.
