The Department of Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry at Yale University seeks applicants for a faculty appointment in the area of structural biology, with a focus on electron cryo-microscopy (Cryo-EM). Applications will be considered for a position at any level—Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Full Professor. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2018.

Yale University, which has recently established a state-of-the-art microscopy facility including a Titan Krios microscope, has a dynamic cryoEM community with junior and senior faculty from several departments. The Department of Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, located both in the Faculty of Arts & Sciences and in the School of Medicine, spans a broad range of research areas including protein translation and homeostasis, RNA biology, genomics and DNA repair, cytoskeleton and membrane biology, and employs a broad range of structural, genetic and computational approaches.

The successful candidate is expected to establish an active research group, be an interactive member of the faculty, and contribute to the department’s teaching program at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree at the time of hire.
