FAPESP Postdoctoral Position in Biochemistry, Brazil

Expires on: 03/31/2024


The São Carlos Institute of Physics (IFSC/USP), in collaboration with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), is offering a postdoctoral position focusing on in situ Cryo-Electron Tomography. This two-year scholarship aims to investigate the in situ structure of mitochondrial filamentous enzymes associated with the metabolic adaptation of tumors and their impact on organelle ultrastructure and morphology. The research builds upon Adamoski et al, NSMB 2024 (doi: 10.1038/s41594-023-01118-0), employing advanced methodologies like correlative light-electron microscopy (CLEM), cryo-electron tomography in lamella (cryo-ET), and expansion microscopy (ExM).


  • Educational Background: Doctoral degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biophysics, Structural Biology, or related fields.
  • Technical Skills: Practical experience in cell biology.
  • Familiarity with FAPESP fellowship requirements (FAPESP Postdoc).


Interested candidates should submit the following in Portuguese or English to Andre LB Ambrosio (andre@ifsc.usp.br) and Sandra MG Dias (sandra.dias@lnbio.cnpem.br):
