A Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Gilad Ofek at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR) at the University of Maryland. Research in the laboratory focuses on the structural analysis of viruses and associated host immune responses (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-06113-4.pdf). Located in Rockville MD, IBBR houses extensive facilities for structural biology and immunology, including flow cytometry, X-ray crystallography, NMR, and a new cryoEM facility equipped with a 200 keV Talos Arctica microscope and a forthcoming 200 keV Glacios microscope.
IBBR (www.ibbr.umd.edu) is a premier research institute focused on the structural and quantitative biological characterization of complex protein structure/function relationships and bio-molecular engineering and testing of novel products or platforms targeting prevention or treatment of conditions of human disease and intervention. IBBR operates state-of-the-art facilities located in the heart of the biotechnology corridor in Rockville, Maryland. The Institute is a joint research enterprise between the University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology and has an outstanding group of scientists and engineers with long-standing track records in basic and translational research.
Best suited candidates will have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent and have prior experience in structural biology (X-ray crystallography or cryoEM). Candidates with experience in immunology or virology are also encouraged to apply.
