Research Associate/Assistant Professor positions are immediately available in Prof. Ian Wilson’s Lab of Antibody Structure at Shanghai Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS), ShanghaiTech University ( http://siais.shanghaitech.edu.cn/eng/research7.asp). SIAIS is an innovative research institute dedicated to the fundamental problems in life science, particularly in the field of immunology.
The Lab of Antibody Structure utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to study the structures and functional mechanisms of key molecules/complexes in innate and adaptive immunity, with a long-term goal of understanding and modulating the functions of important immune receptors and effectors for the prevention and treatment of various immune disorders, microbial infections or cancers. We are now seeking self-motivated talents to join us. Candidates for Research Associate/Assistant Professor positions should: --- hold a Ph.D. degree in biophysics, biochemistry, computational biology or immunology --- have a strong research background in structural or computational biology --- have a publication record commensurate with experience --- manifest good problem solving, interpersonal and communication skills --- familiarity with single particle electron microscopy of macromolecular complexes would be a big plus --- experience in membrane protein crystallography would also be a plus, as well as familiarity with small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) Besides taking responsibilities for his/her own and collaborative projects, the candidates are also expected to help training and supervising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The candidates will benefit from the world-class academic environment as well as easy access to SSRF beam lines for macromolecules and SAXS, and state-of-the-art cryo-EM instruments (Titan Krios/K2 to be installed at ShanghaiTech University). If interested, please send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with publication list and three references to si...@shanghaitech.edu.cn (cc: wil...@scripps.edu and yang...@shanghaitech.edu.cn <si...@shanghaitech.edu.cn>).
