to house a modern 200 kV cryo-electron microscope, supported by significant
investment from the University and a private donor.

We are now seeking to appoint a high-calibre researcher in cryo-electron
microscopy, with a clear vision to lead their own programme of excellent
research within YSBL <https://www.york.ac.uk/chemistry/research/ysbl/>.

the optical microscopy in the Biology Technology Facility. The role is
available at any level and we welcome interest from talented academics with
an impressive research profile appropriate to the level of application and
a collegiate approach to their work.

You will be a dynamic research leader with a consistent track record in the
