*Research Associate/Assistant Professor positions*

Research Associate/Assistant Professor positions are immediately available
in the Laboratory of Antibody Structure (PI: Prof. Ian Wilson) at Shanghai
Institute for Advanced Immunochemical Studies (SIAIS), ShanghaiTech
University (http://siais.shanghaitech.edu.cn/eng/research7.asp). SIAIS is
an innovative research institute dedicated to the fundamental problems in
life science, particularly in the fields of immunochemistry, structural
biology, immunology and virology, computational biology, cell and molecular
biology.

The Lab of Antibody Structure utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, which
embraces x-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, bio-mass spectrometry, and other
biophysical methods, to study the host entry of various pathogens and their
interaction with host cells and immune system, with a long-term goal of
understanding and modulating the functions of important host receptors and
immune effectors for the prevention and treatment of microbial infections,
immune disorders, or cancers.

We are now seeking self-motivated and creative researchers to join our
team. Candidates for Research Associate/Assistant Professor positions
should:

--- hold a Ph.D. degree in fields relevant to the Lab interests, including
structural biology, bioinformatics, immunology and biochemistry)

--- have a strong research background in related fields

--- have a publication record commensurate with experience

--- manifest good problem solving, interpersonal and communication skills

Some particular areas of interest for new appointments are:

--- experience in membrane protein expression/purification and membrane
protein crystallography or cryo-EM

--- experience in electron tomography of viruses

--- experience in integrative modeling

--- experience in small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) and familiarity with
ITC/Biacore/DSC instruments.

Besides taking responsibilities for his/her own and collaborative projects,
the candidates are also expected to help train and supervise graduate
students, postdoctoral fellows, and technicians. The candidates will
benefit from the world-class academic environment as well as easy access to
SSRF beamlines for macromolecular crystallography and SAXS, and
state-of-the-art cryo-EM instruments (two Titan Krios/K2, Talos Artica, and
other microscopes) installed close to our lab at ShanghaiTech University.



If interested, please send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with
publication list and list of three referees to  hr_siais
@shanghaitech.edu.cn <[log in to unmask]> (cc: [log in to unmask] and
[log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]>). Title and salary
will be commensurate with experience. The positions will remain open until
