Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology seeks to fill a
Cryo-EM Facility Manager Position (m/f)
The position is available immediately in the newly established Department of Structural Biochemistry (Director: Stefan Raunser). It is initially limited to 2 years, but can ultimately become permanent.
Job description: The Electron Microscopy Unit at the MPI Dortmund is currently undergoing an exciting period of upgrading and expansion. The candidate will be involved in the development and application of advanced electron microscopy technologies such as single particle cryo-electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography. The job responsibilities will include operation and maintenance of state-of-the-art electron microscopes, including a FEI Titan Krios and JEOL JEM 3200 FSC, and accessory equipment as well as computational data analysis.
Requirements: The candidate should have a degree in biological sciences, engineering, material sciences or a related field of science, training in the use and routine maintenance of electron microscopes, as well as expertise in specimen preparation techniques. Previous experience in cryo-EM and image processing would be an advantage. Strong oral communication skills in English are considered.
Payment: Payment depends on personal conditions and qualification according to the directive of TVöD. Social benefits correspond to those of the public service.
Application: The Max-Planck society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
The Max-Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
Please send your CV and a statement outlining your relevant work experience until September 30 to Stefan Raunser at firstname.lastname@example.org
