Tue Dec 21 13:31:14 PST 2021

The Hoelz laboratory at the California Institute of Technology seeks to recruit an outstanding postdoctoral scientist in structural cell biology. Our laboratory focuses on the structure-function relationships of the nuclear pore complex and associated nucleocytoplasmic transport machinery.

This position requires a recent Ph.D. degree in biochemistry/biophysics with a strong background in biochemistry, x-ray crystallography, or cryo-electron microscopy/tomography. The successful applicant should be a highly motivated individual with good organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills. 

The laboratory is well-funded and equipped with modern biophysical instrumentation. Importantly, Caltech has an exceptional infrastructure for structural biology, including access to a high intensity, completely automated, state-of-the-art crystallography beamline at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), as well as an excellent cryo-electron microscopy facility with access to FEI Arctica and Titan Krios microscopes equipped with Gatan K3 cameras. 

The position is available immediately and funded for 3+ years. Depending on performance, the position can be extended for additional years.

To apply, please send your CV, a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of at least two references to André Hoelz (hoelz at caltech.edu).
