Postdoctoral Fellow - Methods development for biological anomalous scattering

EMBL Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
Application deadline: 13 Mar 2020

The EMBL Hamburg Outstation at the DESY campus performs research in structural biology with specific emphasis on the use of synchrotron radiation. EMBL Hamburg runs two macromolecular crystallography (MX) beamlines and a Small Angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) beamline at the high-brillance storage ring PETRA III.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in the BioSAXS group. The group has a strong experience in SAXS data collection and interpretation and runs the user-oriented P12 BioSAXS beamline at PETRA III.

Your role

You will work on the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) funded project on advanced approaches to study macromolecular structures in solution with anomalous SAXS (ASAXS). You will be involved in the experimental and computational methods development in collaboration with the University of Mainz, a partner on this DFG project.

You have

  • A PhD in a relevant field (physics, mathematics, structural biology)
  • Knowledge and/or interest in X-ray instrumentation
  • Good communication and English language skills and the ability to collaborate with international teams are essential.

You might also have

  • Experience in programming and in biological scattering/diffraction would be advantageous.
