We are recruiting postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, research associates and technicians. Summer research opportunities are available for undergraduates.
Research projects include:
(1) Investigating the structural cell biology of malaria and related parasites. Of particular interest are membrane remodeling processes important for human infection and propagation of the parasite. 
(2) Investigating the mechanism of membrane fission in human cells. 
Our lab primarily utilizes cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET), and cryo-correlative light and electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM) methods for structural investigations of purified proteins as well as proteins in their native environments in vivo. Beyond structural biology, we use cell biology, biochemistry, and biophysics for our investigations of membrane remodeling processes in human cells and parasites.

Postdoctoral scholars: Two postdoctoral positions are available. Interested applicants should apply online for projects on:
Please provide a current CV, a description of your research interest in your cover letter (1-2 pages), and contact information for three references with your application.
These opportunities are ideal for (1) cell biologists/parasitologists looking to develop expertise in cryo-EM, cryo-ET, or cryo-correlative light and electron microscopy, and (2) Structural biologists (cryo-EM, cryo-ET, cryo-CLEM, and/or X-ray crystallography experience) or biophysicists looking to develop further expertise in structural biology or to acquire expertise in parasitology and malaria biology.
Graduate students: Current Princeton University students interested in rotating in our lab are encouraged to e-mail Dr. Jimah (jimah(at)princeton(dot)edu) to discuss research interests, goals, and potential projects.
Prospective students interested in graduate studies in the Jimah Lab at Princeton University are encouraged to apply to the Molecular Biology Ph.D. program
Undergraduate students: Summer research opportunities are available. 
Research associates and technicians: Individuals with a B.S, B.A, or M.S/ PhD in molecular biology, microbiology, structural biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biomedical engineering, or related fields and interested in parasitology, cryo-EM/ET, or cryo-CLEM may e-mail Dr. Jimah (jimah(at)princeton(dot)edu) with a current CV and a description of research interests and career goals (<1 page). 
Two positions are available:
  1. Research specialist I/II in structural biology
