OPENING FOR A STRUCTURAL BIOLOGIST AT BROOKHAVEN NATIONAL LABORATORY
A scientific staff opening is available within the PXRR, the
Macromolecular Crystallography Research Resource at the National
Synchrotron Light Source. The roughly 24 individuals in this group
perform research and development on methods for reliable automation of
high-throughput structure determination, provide synchrotron facilities to
the structural biological community, engage in collaborations with remote
users, and carry on individual research programs. The PXRR provides
access to six beam lines, two of which are hugely productive insertion
devices, and has a productive and expanding remote-access program,
providing facilities not only to the Northeastern United States, but
worldwide. Further information is available at http://px.nsls.bnl.gov/
The successful applicant will join a team of half a dozen other scientists
who guide and participate in this work.
Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent experience and a good
publication record, and should have solid experience in the X-ray
crystallography of biological macromolecules. Experience in sophisticated
diffraction studies, instrument or software development, or extreme
brightness macromolecular crystallography would be an advantage.
Applications should be sent, preferably by E-mail, to Dr R.M. Sweet
(sweet at bnl.gov). Each should include a cover letter outlining career
goals and how the candidate would like to contribute to the effort of the
group, a full CV including a list of publications, and the names,
affiliations, E-mail addresses, and phone numbers of three professional
referees. We welcome and encourage informal inquiries by phone or E-mail.
Brookhaven National Laboratory is an equal opportunity employer committed
to workforce diversity.
