Faculty-Equivalent, Cryo-Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM)

Position Summary

As part of its program focused on advancing new measurement technologies and standards for biomolecular structure and function the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Biomolecular Structure & Function Group seeks a ‘faculty-equivalent’ principal investigator to establish a research program focused on applications of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) in structural biology.  We are particularly interested in candidates with a focus on developing cryo-EM experimental techniques and data analysis tools, and who would leverage other structural methods [e.g. nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), macromolecular crystallography and/or small angle scattering] to advance the current state-of-the-art in biomolecular structure-function analysis. 

The successful candidate should have a PhD or equivalent, a strong research portfolio and publication record that demonstrates evidence of cryo-EM expertise complementary to our current group research strengths in NMR, crystallography and small angle scattering.  He/she is expected to become a recognized leader in the field of cryo-EM and contribute to collaborative projects both within the group and with external partners.  US Citizenship is required.

The Biomolecular Structure & Function Group is located at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR), a joint federal-state research partnership between NIST and the University of Maryland.  IBBR operates state-of-the-art research facilities and is located in the heart of the biotechnology corridor in Rockville, Maryland. The Biomolecular Structure & Function Group has strong connections to the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) and is part of the NIST Biomanufacturing program. 

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications. 

Applications: Applicants should send cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, and contact information of three references to the attention of John P. Marino, Leader, Biomolecular Structure & Function Group: jobs@ibbr.umd.edu.

Closing Date: Review of candidates will begin November 1, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
