Paid Undergraduate Internships with the Simons Electron Microscopy Center

Technician Position

The Simons Electron Microscopy Center (semc.nysbc.org) at the New York Structural Biology Center is seeking to hire a technician to add to its rapidly expanding group. We are looking for a bright and enthusiastic individual to help out with various tasks to keep the lab running. Most important requirements are a good attitude, ability to learn, able to work independently, early riser and willingness to do what needs to be done. Must be able to work in a multi-tasking environment where priorities may change often and be able to work well with others. Previous electron microscope experience is not required, but is a plus.

Requirements include a science degree (Associate degree or above), basic computer skills (comfortable with Linux environment and web interfaces) and comfortable around scientific instrumentation. Salary is commensurate with experience. Qualified applicants should send a curriculum vitae and names of three references to cem@nysbc.org.

Research Associate and Scientist positions

The New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) seeks an experienced electron microscopist to join the staff of the Simons Electron Microscopy Center (http://semc.nysbc.org). The NYSBC is a shared center that supports state-of-the-art research in EM, NMR, and X-ray crystallography. The facilities include six transmission electron microscopes (including 3xTitan Krios instruments) and a dual-beam scanning electron microscope (with a Quorum cryo stage), which support projects involving electron tomography and single particle analysis of both stained and frozen-hydrated samples. Projects focus on 3D reconstruction of biological assemblies ranging from the atomic structure of membrane proteins, to the subunit organization in macromolecular complexes and the cellular anatomy of developing organisms, to 3D reconstructions of entire cells and their distributions within their native tissue using the dual-beam microscope.

To assist in these developments, NYSBC seeks an individual with experience in biological electron microscopy and image reconstruction. This individual will carry out experiments in support of collaborative projects with affiliated investigators and will also have opportunities to pursue independent research projects. The individual should be capable of multitasking, should enjoy working with other people, should have a good working knowledge of electron microscopes and a strong research background. Good communication skills are essential.

To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and the names of three references to cem@nysbc.org.

Research programmer and/or system administrator positions

The Simons Electron Microscopy Center (http://semc.nysbc.org), which support projects involving electron tomography and single particle analysis, is looking for a program developer and system administrator.

With the growth technology and data acquisition methods the field continuously collects several TBs of data per day per instrument. To cope with this exponential growth of scientific data new algorithm package development, GPU accelerated workflows and cloud based approaches are being used. We are looking for a software scientist to join our scientific software group to work on integration, visualization and analysis of electron microscopy data. This position or positions would cover the complete image processing pipeline during and after the data collection to 3D reconstruction, and architecture development to create the infrastructure to support these pipelines.

To apply, please send a curriculum vitae and the names of three references to cem@nysbc.org.
