[X-plor] Opening for a structural biologist at BNL

Tue Dec 20 14:11:43 EST 2005


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.
