The Ho Lab at the Columbia University’s Department of Microbiology & Immunology is seeking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Scientist to join us in using cryoEM, cryoFIB-SEM, and cryoET to explore how membrane protein complexes mediate host-pathogen interactions in the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Projects include single-particle cryoEM structure determination of native membrane protein complexes purified directly from malaria parasites and cryoFIB enabled cryoelectron tomography of the host-pathogen interface in parasite-infected red blood cells. Our lab is located in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at Columbia University in New York City, New York.
If this sounds interesting to you, please send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Chi-Min Ho at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information here: www.cmholab.org/research. We look forward to receiving your application materials. All applicants must also apply through RAPS.
We are looking for innovative, resourceful and resilient scientists who enjoy learning new things, meeting new people, and being part of an open, collaborative team. Successful candidates will join a vibrant, collaborative research community and have access to state-of-the-art electron microscopy facilities at Columbia, including: - four Titan Krios microscopes with a Gatan BioQuantum energy filter, K3 Summit direct electron detector, and Volta phase plate - an Aquilos cryo-FIB/SEM microscope, Leica cryo-correlative fluorescence light microscope, Zeiss LSM800 cryo-confocal with AiryScan detector - F20 screening microscope with a K2 Summit direct electron detector
