Department: IU Bloomington Vice Provost For Research
A cryo-EM research scientist position at Indiana University Bloomington is available. This position is part of the IUB Electron Microscopy Center (http://www.iu.edu/~iubemc/), which is a core facility that serves both the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses of Indiana University. The IUB-EMC currently has three Ph.D. level staff that manage five electron microscopes, including an FEI Teneo Volume Scope SBF-SEM, a JEOL 1010 TEM, a JEOL 1400plus cryo-TEM, a cryo-equipped JEOL 3200FS (S)TEM, and our most recent addition, an FEI Talos Arctica cryo-TEM currently being installed. The JEOL 3200FS is equipped with a DE-64 direct electron detecting camera (DDD) while the Talos Artica will have Falcon III and Gatan K3 DDD's and Volta phase plates. Our current cryoEM applications include single particle cryo-EM and cryo-electron tomography and the Talos Artic will introduce micro electron diffraction to the campus.
IU Bloomington is located in the rolling hills and hardwood forests of southern Indiana. Bloomington is a liberal university town with a vibrant music and arts scene, but without the crowds and traffic of a large city. Indianapolis, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Chicago are all within a four hour drive.
Compensation will be competitive based on experience.
· Ph.D. in biology, biochemistry, or chemistry (or related discipline) · Previous experience in cryo transmission electron microscopy (one or more of the following: single particle analyses, cryo-electron tomography, correlative light and electron microscopy, cryo-electron diffraction) · Excellent computational/data analysis skills · Excellent record-keeping skills
