We seek scientists studying macromolecular dynamics and structure, mechanisms of molecular function and related areas. Appropriate topics include proteins, nucleic acids and their assemblies; membrane proteins; cellular processes in prokaryotes and eukaryotes (for example, proteostasis, condensates and immunology); biomolecular design; chemical biology, and computational analysis, among others. Resources include cryoEM and cryoET capabilities (Titan Krios/K3). The University is affiliated with Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory. Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with qualifications.

Prior to the start of employment, qualified applicants must have a doctoral degree or equivalent.
