You must be capable of working independently and will be responsible for developing new protocols for isolation of sub cellular fractions and performing CryoET, FIB-SEM, subtomogram analysis and model building. The successful candidate must also take these data through to protein structural bioinformatic analyses.

You will have the ability to manage your own academic and associated activities. Excellent communications skills, including the ability to write for publications, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings is essential.
