The Kellogg lab, in the College of Arts & Sciences, focuses on cryo-EM imaging of macromolecular complexes. We work across disciplines, employing various techniques including protein biochemistry, computational modeling, and cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to study the molecular mechanisms by which proteins function in the cellular environment. The Kellogg lab seeks a driven and motivated individual to carry out basic research related to electron microscopy imaging and image processing. Started in 2018, the Kellogg lab is a growing group of scientists who are share inter-disciplinary interests. We seek a collaborative and enthusiastic individual who is willing to learn and work in a team environment. This individual will be expected to participate in research related to EM sample preparation, and EM imaging and computational image-processing. While much of the individual's responsibilities will be research-related, this individual will be tasked with some lab maintenance responsibilities such as lab ordering, reagent preparation and overall laboratory maintenance, lab equipment and inventory, and will help to keep the lab organized and clean. Ensure that all laboratory protocols and procedures adhere to safety requirements.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to: *Assist in conducting research experiments using techniques such as negative stain imaging, and cryo-EM sample preparation and cryo-screening *Prepare and maintain stock solutions. *Maintain lab notebook records. *Analyze data using computer software and statistical methods *Assist with data preparation for publication. *Order and maintain laboratory supplies. *Adhere to lab safety protocols with solid understanding of laboratory safety techniques and procedures. *Ensure department compliance with regulations on storage, labeling, handling, and proper waste disposal. *Maintain overall laboratory order and organization. *Learn and master new techniques and procedures as needed to advance the research program.
