We are looking to recruit a candidate with strong research experience in X-ray crystallography who is interested in acquiring new skills in cryo electron microscopy.
The post is shared across both the X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM) facilities and offers an exciting opportunity for training in the field of cryoEM. You will be responsible for managing the crystallisation and X‑ray crystallography facility within the CSB, including the training of facility users. You will work closely with users to support crystallisation experiments and X-ray crystallographic data collection, both within the CSB and at synchrotrons (primarily at the Diamond Light Source). You will support the operation of and training for biophysical equipment within CSB and will work closely with the cryoEM facility manager to support the training needs of the CSB user community. By joining the CSB Facilities team, you will benefit from a comprehensive package of career development opportunities, including Imperial’s Leadership and Management Development, and Training the Trainer Programmes.
