MX Industrial Liaison Scientist position at Diamond Light Source

Application deadline: 01 Sep 2019

Industrial use of Diamond is rapidly growing with a client base ranging from global pharmaceutical giants to small biotech start-ups. The Industrial Liaison team at Diamond provides a full consultancy service for industrial users of the beamlines from experiment design, through data collection to analysis and reporting.

Diamond are currently looking to expand the Industrial Liaison team to meet the increasing demand from companies using our structural biology facilities, particularly focusing on macromolecular crystallography (MX). This position is an opportunity to apply your MX knowledge to an array of projects with real-world impact on human health and great importance to the drug discovery business. The team supports clients from around the world with a wide range of MX experience; from those first evaluating synchrotron-based methods for their start-up businesses to those routinely applying the technique in their discovery pipelines. Our state-of-the-art beamlines along with a full suite of preparation facilities and computing resources are at our disposal to drive client projects towards the atomic resolution insights they seek.

The Diamond Industrial Liaison team are looking for a passionate and experienced structural biologist capable of contributing to the entire experiment from crystallisation to data analysis and model building. An understanding of structure-guided drug design and experience with protein production are also key to being able to consult effectively in this role. As this is a client-facing position you will need excellent communication skills with the ability to interact at both a technical and business level.
