Are you a creative, self-motivated postdoctoral-scientist with experience in imaging technologies? Do you want to work at the forefront of in situ structural biology, developing novel imaging workflows with access to world-class instrumentation? 

Working in the Astbury Biostructure laboratory electron microscopy facility with state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in the field of cryo-electron microscopy, you will work on the development and provision of correlative imaging workflows, and in particular cryo-light/electron microscopy. Day-to-day you will work with users across multiple projects supporting sample preparation, fluorescence imaging (including cryo-fluorescence imaging) and cryoEM imaging of cells, tissues and organisms.  You will help to pioneer and develop these correlative imaging workflows, providing our user community with expert guidance, training and advice, as well as support for image analysis and interpretation. In addition, you will support day-to-day operation of the EM facility, including single particle cryoEM workflows. 

Based within the Astbury Biostructure Laboratory EM facility, you will have access to state-of-the-art equipment including two Titan Krios microscopes, 3 additional transmission electron microscopes, dedicated Leica cryo-fluorescence microscope, (cryo)ultramicrotome and a suite of sample preparation equipment for electron microscopy. 

You should have a Ph.D. and significant experience with cutting edge imaging technologies, and a passion for studying biological and biomedical processes. As a self-starter, you will be comfortable working with multiple imaging technologies, bringing significant experience in either cryoEM or state of the art fluorescent imaging. As you will work closely, interactively and collaboratively with our researchers you will also need excellent communication skills.
