Research Position | Published on 30.05.2019 |
We are seeking two post-doctoral scientists to join the Laboratory of Structural Virology in CEITEC (http://plevkalab.ceitec.cz). We use cryo-electron microscopy/tomography to determine three-dimensional structures of viruses and study their interactions with infected cells. We aim to provide structural information for development of (1) anti-viral drugs and (2) phage therapy to treat antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections. We study human viruses from the families Picornaviridae and Flaviviridae. Our phage studies are focused on biofilms of Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Our lab is part of Structural Biology program at CEITEC. We have access to in-house electron microscopes: Titan Krios equipped with Falcon3 and K2 detectors and phase-plate, Talos Arctica, TF20, and dual beam microscope Versa 3D. The group includes technicians to assist with routine laboratory tasks.
Anticipated start date: flexible, optimally September-December 2019
