Jobs in Structural Biology and Related Fields

Postdoctoral Research Associate - Structural Biology

Oak Ridge, Tennessee, United States
Application deadline: 28 Feb 2019

The Diffraction Group in the Neutron Scattering Division (NSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in macromolecular crystallography and/or structural biology to investigate the structure and function of biological complexes involved in catalysis, membrane transport and light harvesting systems. You will join a multi-disciplinary research team that is developing and applying isotopic labeling and neutron diffraction and scattering techniques to understand and control the structure, function and dynamics of complex biological systems. As an ORNL postdoctoral fellow you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities for isotopic labeling, biophysical characterization and X-ray diffraction, as well as access to world class facilities for neutron diffraction and scattering.

Applicants should have received a Ph.D. in structural biology, protein chemistry, biophysics or related science field within the last five years and should have extensive experience  in biophysical characterization using diffraction or scattering techniques. Experience in protein expression, purification and crystallization is desired.
