Associate Professor in Cryo-Electron Tomography

Are you an experienced and influential academic with the proven ability to carry out teaching and research in cryo-electron tomography and related topics? Do you have an excellent research track record, proven success obtaining funding and the vision and drive to tackle new challenges? Are you passionate about delivering world leading research and an exceptional student experience?

As Associate Professor, you will carry out research, teaching and management within the school, faculty and university and contribute to academic leadership in the field of cryo-ET with specific emphasis on subjects relevant to the School.

We aim to recruit an expert in cryoET to enhance our existing strengths in structural biology and to drive forward activity in an £11M philanthropic initiative based in the Cheney Biomedical Accelerator housed within the Faculty of Biological Sciences. The CBA has a mission of “seeing into cells” and is enabled by new state-of-the art plasma focused-ion-beam microscope, two Titan Krios EMs and a dedicated PhD scheme for in situ structural biology. You will be benefit from a vibrant community of researchers interested in cryoEM and cryoET, and a dedicated team of facility staff to help support your research programme.

The ideal candidate will be an established mid-career researcher whose primary expertise is correlative light and electron microscopy and cryoET. You will have a track record and capacity to collaborate with non-experts to address complex biological questions aligned with one or more focus areas of the School: i) infectious disease, ii) cancer and cell signalling, iii) protein, structure and function. You will have experience in research-led teaching at different levels on undergraduate and/or postgraduate taught courses, as well as being involved in the assessment of course work and examinations.

You will join the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology, which is a vibrant academic environment composed 55 staff with research strengths in communicable and non-communicable diseases, structural biology and biotechnology. You may apply to become a member of the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology, which is a multidisciplinary centre whose membership consists of >70 academics interested understanding life in molecular detail, and includes biologists, chemists, physicists and medical scientists. Finally, you will also have an opportunity to engage with scientists based at the NIHR Leeds Biomedical Research.
