It is essential that you research experience in cryoEM SPA and/or in cryoET and subtomogram averaging, both experimental and computational; and a good working knowledge of viruses and retrovirus infection. You will be able to manage the day-to-day running of a research project including assisting the work of junior researchers; and have good written and verbal communication skills.
