TEMIMPS Careers:


Jobs Available in the Transcontinental EM Initiative for Membrane Protein Structure
TEMIMPS is an NIH-funded PSI center for Membrane Protein Structure Determination. Our's is the only PSI center exclusively committed to determination of membrane protein structures using electron microscopy. This will involve development of a number of associated technologies, from high-throughput crystallization screening, automated imaging in the electron microscope, novel approaches for image analysis. Our overall goal is to solve structures over the 5-year period of the grant. The target list includes a wide variety of biologically important proteins, including transporters, pumps, signaling molecules, proteases and adhesion proteins. We are always on the lookout for talented people. If you are interested in joining our team send your CV to temimps@nysbc.org.



  • Postdoctoral Position for a Membrane Protein Structural Biologist at NYSBC
    A postdoctoral position for a membrane protein structural biologist is available at the New York Structural Biology Center (http://cryoem.nysbc.org) in New York City. The successful applicant will work for the Transcontinental Electron Microscopy Initiative for Membrane Protein Structure (TEMIMPS; http://temimps.nysbc.org), which is composed of six research groups with combined expertise in membrane protein production, 2D crystallization, electron microscopy, image processing, and structure determination. The position at NYSBC involves implementation of high-throughput approaches to crystallization followed by structure determination using methods of electron crystallography. The NYSBC has developed robotic tools for screening of crystallization trials and hosts superlative facilities for electron cryo-microscopy. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Structural Biology or a related field. Strong research experience in membrane protein biochemistry or electron microscopy is highly desirable. In addition, the candidate must have strong interpersonal, organizational and communication skills in order to facilitate collaboration with other research groups associated with TEMIMPS. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and contact information for three professional referees to Dr. David Stokes at stokes@nysbc.org.
