What’s it like working in the Joshua-Tor lab?

The Joshua-Tor lab is perfect for you if you’re looking to do groundbreaking science in a new area within an established and well-respected lab. We are hoping to find new members who are incredibly motivated, self-directed, collaborative, and passionate about pushing the bounds of what we know of structural biology.

We enjoy extremely frequent access to a Titan Krios cryo-electron microscope equipped with a Gatan K3 camera. We also have a screening microscope (Talos 120C), and a chameleon system for grid preparation was just installed in addition to Vitrobot and Leica plungers. There is an excellent fully equipped and soon to be upgraded (yay!) X-ray facility, crystallization robots and fantastic computational resources including high-performance and GPU computers. Combined with the nearby NSLS-II, these are exciting times with exciting capabilities. The lab is also equipped with state-of-the-art instruments for studying macromolecular interactions, and CSHL has an array of cutting-edge core facilities.

The Joshua-Tor group environment is ambitious and congenial, with a strong emphasis on collaborative work between postdocs, PhD students, and technicians. The lab is located on the beautiful main campus of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on the “Gold coast” of Long Island. We’re a short train ride from New York City and a shorter car-ride from seashores, boating and vineyards. Our institution is a leading international center for research and education, organizing dozens of scientific conferences and advanced technical science courses each year, giving lab members a unique opportunity to network and learn from a wide variety of top-tier scientists.

We believe that science is for everyone, and that’s why we’ve employed researchers with a variety of backgrounds and believe in the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
