''It is time for structural biologists to embrace the challenge of quantitatively describing functional energy landscapes’’ (Dorothee Kern). If this resonates with you and you are passionate about combining new technology and biology, join the adventure.
We are hiring a Cluster-of-Excellence-funded postdoc to work on the development of a novel approach to time-resolved cryo-EM imaging by combining XFEL based sample delivery technologies with vitrification of proteins in action. Your primary focus lies on the development and testing of the experimental set-up, simulation of the vitrification process, and the characterisation of vitrified biological specimen by cryo-EM. Further information on the position can be found here: https://www.uni-hamburg.de/stellenangebote/ausschreibung.html?jobID=dc1a21880b5bdbc09e7235d0ffe0ed16ec72ac71
The postdoc position comes initially with a two-year contract with a competitive salary, and the opportunity to live and work in the free and hanseatic city of Hamburg. The successful candidate will become a fellow of the Cluster ‘Advanced Imaging of Matter’ (CUI) and will receive additional training, infrastructure access and mentorship support as required. The position will be based at CSSB on the vibrant DESY campus (Notkestr.85, 22761 Hamburg, Germany).
