Position Description:

A postdoctoral or more senior research position is available in the Jimah Lab at Princeton University to study organelle biogenesis, endocytosis, and other membrane remodeling processes in malaria and related parasites. Projects include single-particle cryo-EM structure determination of

Plasmodium falciparum

and

Toxoplasma gondii

proteins, and the structural biology of parasite proteins in their cellular context by cryo-electron tomography / cryo-correlative light and electron microscopy (cryo-ET / cryo-CLEM) enabled by cryo-FIB-SEM (focused ion beam/scanning electron microscopy). This position offers an excellent opportunity to contribute to a vibrant research program, and Dr. Jimah is a committed to fostering the career development of all members of the research group. The postdoctoral scholar will have access to cutting-edge cryo-EM equipment at the Imaging & Analysis Center (

https://iac.princeton.edu/equipment.html

) and other instrumentation in various core facilities at Princeton University. The position is available starting January 2022 with a negotiable start date.


This position will be within the Molecular Biology Department (

https://molbio.princeton.edu/department

), an innovative, vibrant, collegial, collaborative, and excellent research environment. Princeton University is in an idyllic town midway between New York City and Philadelphia, with convenient train access to both cities.


This opportunity is ideal for:

(1) Cell biologists/parasitologists looking to develop expertise in cryo-EM, cryo-ET, or cryo-CLEM. No experience in structural biology is required.

(2) Structural biologists (with cryo-EM, cryo-ET, cryo-CLEM, and/or X-ray crystallography experience) or biophysicists looking to develop further expertise in structural biology and/or acquire expertise in parasitology and malaria biology.


Qualifications:

Ph.D. or equivalent in biochemistry, chemistry, microbiology, structural biology, biophysics, cell biology, biomedical engineering, or related fields.

No experience in structural biology is required.


To Apply:

Application deadline:

The position is available starting January 2022 with a negotiable start date. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
