Senior Electron Microscopy Technician & Postdoctoral Fellow open

POSITION AVAILABLE Senior Electron Microscopy Technician & Postdoctoral Fellow

A Senior Electron Microscopy Technician and a Postdoctoral Fellow are sought to carry out research work on the structure of actin filament complexes that (1) are associated with cardiac and skeletal muscle regulatory proteins to control muscle activity and (2) interact with smooth muscle actin-binding proteins to modulate the assembly of the smooth muscle cytoskeleton. Applicants must have experience in high-resolution EM work and first-rate facility with computer-assisted image analysis. Prior familiarity with preserving and recording macromolecular assemblies in negative stain and by cryo-EM methods would be invaluable. Experience in supervising research students would also be important.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. William Lehman at the meeting or send their CV with three references to:
