Jobs in Structural Biology and Related Fields

Postdoctoral Fellow

Villigen, Switzerland
Application deadline: 05 May 2013

Built on the success of PILATUS detector technology, PSI and Dectris Ltd. are developing the next generation single-photon counting detector (EIGER) featuring smaller pixel size, higher frame rate and dynamic range. The proposed project is to exploit PILATUS and EIGER detectors in protein crystallography applications:

  • Systematic data acquisition and processing optimization using PILATUS 2M/6M detectors
  • Development of fast data acquisition and processing methods with EIGER 1M detector in protein micro-crystallography
  • Commissioning of the EIGER 16M detector at a protein crystallography beamline

You hold a PhD degree in (bio-) chemistry or physics and have several years of experience in protein crystallography. Working knowledge for data processing programs and various phasing and refinement software is a must. Experience in computer programming would be a significant advantage. If you are a good team player with fine communication skills and sense of responsibility, this position will offer a great opportunity for you to develop your research career in an exciting and highly multidisciplinary environment.

For further information please contact Dr Meitian Wang, phone +41 56 310 41 75 or Dr Clemens Schulze-Briese, phone +41 56 500 21 20.

Please submit your application online (including list of publications and addresses of referees) for the position as a Postdoctoral Fellow (index no. 6112-00).
