Congrats, Stephano: your 1st-author paper entitled ‘Molecular Architecture of Salmonella Typhimurium Virus P22 Genome Ejection Machinery’ has been formally accepted in the Journal of Molecular Biology!!
A Scientist I position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Gino Cingolani (www.cingolanilab.org) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). We are seeking a motivated researcher with expertise in structural biology. The ideal candidate must be able to work independently and help lab members carry out structure determination using single particle analysis software, de novo model building, and structure refinement. Experience with vitrification of biological specimens, cryo-EM data collection, Linux, and GPU-computing is highly desired. Knowledge of protein purification and molecular biology techniques is not required for this job.
The Cingolani lab is equipped with several multi-GPU workstations and a GPU cluster for single particle analysis: a variety of cryo-EM datasets are immediately available for structural analysis. Candidates with a doctorate or master’s degree in structural biology (e.g., cryo-EM, X-ray crystallography, computational biology, etc.) and demonstrated experience in single particle analysis are encouraged to apply. Salary for this position varies broadly depending on qualifications, years of experience, and publication record. In addition, the Scientist I position offers significant opportunities for career progression and growth (https://www.uab.edu/humanresources/home/compensation/research-career-ladder). UAB consistently ranks among the top US universities, and Birmingham is among the best US cities.
· Ph.D. or M.S. with training in structural or computational biology
· Experience with software for single particle analysis, model building, and refinement
· Knowledge of Linux and experience with GPU-computing
· People’s skills and willingness to work in a team.
SALARY AND BENEFITS:
The salary range for this position is $63,125 – 103,700 plus full benefits based on qualifications and experience.
HOW TO APPLY: Interested candidates should send their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application should be a single PDF file with a cover letter stating the candidate’s research expertise/accomplishments (1 page), a curriculum vitae, and a list of references.
A postdoctoral researcher position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Gino Cingolani (www.cingolanilab.org) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). We are seeking a post-doc with research expertise in structural biology. Candidates with training in X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM are encouraged to apply. The candidate must be able to work independently and use software for Single Particle Analysis, de novo model building, and structure refinement. Experience in protein purification, vitrification, and cryo-EM data collection is desired but not required for this job. UAB consistently ranks among the top US universities and Birmingham is one of the best US cities.

After 15 years at Thomas Jefferson University, we have moved to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (AUB) to start a new adventure. Thank you, Thomas Jefferson University, for nearly 15 years of fantastic research and academic life. Goodbye, friends, colleagues, and former lab members at Jefferson. We are super thrilled to start a new cycle at UAB. The future of structural biology is about integrating different structural methods: stay tuned!
Guess who showed up while packing the lab….. Thank you, Momo, Liam, Nick Swanson, and Steve Doll!
Congratulations to Ruoyu (Liam) Yang for successfully defending his Ph.D. thesis! Liam, you did GREAT. Best of luck finding an excellent post-doc lab.
After nearly three years in the lab, Daniel moved to Dr. Rebecca Page’s lab at UCONN for a new post-doctoral experience. Thank you for your hard work and best of luck to you and your family in Connecticut!
Momo’s paper on Pseudomoas-phage E217 cryo-EM structure is out. Congrats Momo and team!
