The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree with demonstrated expertise in the area of cryo-EM structural determination. The candidate will be expected to participate in graduate and undergraduate teaching. Review of application materials will begin on October 15, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
