Electron Microscopist (Cryo TEM), Bio21

The Facility currently house Tecnai F30 cryo TEM as well as a high resolution Tecnai F20, a dual beam Nova Nanolab and Quanta ESEM and a Teneo VolumeScope. In July 2017 the platform will take delivery of two new TEMs, a Talos Arctica 200kV with autoloader and director detector for structural biology applications and a Talos L120C for sample screening.

As responsible for the cryo-TEM platform you will answer to the manager of the AMF. You will be responsible for providing scientific advice relevant to the facility, liaison with users to determine their requirement, liaise with the other electron microscopy capabilities relevant to cryoEM. You will be responsible, in consultation with the manager of the AMF, for ensuring the efficient use of the resources under your responsibility and identifying future capability requirements. You will also be encouraged to engage in research development activities in cryo-TEM in collaboration with academic and/or industry scientists. The opportunity to pursue funding from external sources to support your own research and development activities may be negotiated.
