A position is available in the Biosciences and Biotechnology Division of
the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate at Lawrence Livermore
National Laboratory to carry out research on the scanning probe
microscopy and nanometer-scale secondary ion mass spectrometry studies
of structure, assembly and function of viral systems. A Ph.D.
degree in life sciences, chemistry or physics, and experience in
scanning probe microscopy are required. Experience in mass spectrometry
techniques and biological experiments are highly desirable. The
successful candidate will work as an integral member of a group with
expertise in scanning probe microscopy, mass spectrometry, structural
virology, and immunology. Thus, experience working in multidisciplinary
teams and demonstrated ability for scientific accomplishment with
minimal direct guidance is desirable. Salary scale: from low- to
mid-$70K depending on qualification and experience. LLNL
is an equal opportunity employer.
Interested candidates should submit a CV, publication list, names and addresses of three references to
