A postdoctoral or more senior research position is available in the Jimah Lab to study organelle biogenesis, endocytosis, and other membrane remodeling processes in malaria and related parasites. Projects include single-particle cryo-EM structure determination of Plasmodium falciparum and Toxoplasma gondii proteins, and the structural biology of parasite proteins in their cellular context by cryo-electron tomography / cryo-correlative light and electron microscopy (cryo-ET / cryo-CLEM) enabled by cryo-FIB-SEM (focused ion beam/scanning electron microscopy). The postdoctoral scholar will have access to cutting-edge cryo-EM equipment at the Imaging & Analysis Center and access to other relevant instrumentation in various core facilities at Princeton University. The position is available starting January 2022 with a negotiable start date. Although the initial appointment is for one-year, it is expected to be renewed contingent on satisfactory performance.
This position will be within the Molecular Biology Department, an innovative, vibrant, collegial, collaborative, and excellent research environment. Princeton University is in an idyllic town midway between New York City and Philadelphia, with convenient train access to both cities.
This opportunity is ideal for:
(1) Cell biologists/parasitologists looking to develop expertise in cryo-EM, cryo-ET, or cryo-CLEM.
(2) Structural biologists (with cryo-EM, cryo-ET, cryo-CLEM, and/or X-ray crystallography experience) or biophysicists looking to develop further expertise in structural biology and/or acquire expertise in parasitology and malaria biology.
How to apply:
Interested applicants should apply online at: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/22701. Please include a cover letter describing your research interests (~1 page), a current CV, and contact information for three references.
Essential qualifications: Ph.D. or equivalent in biochemistry, microbiology, structural biology, biophysics, cell biology, biomedical engineering, or related fields.
For more information, please contact Dr. Jimah by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
