Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for Structural Molecular Biology, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
The Center for Structural Molecular Biology (CSMB) has a postdoctoral fellow position available to work in the area of structural biology/experimental biophysics. In this position, you will be expected to contribute to the development of methods for investigating the structure of biomacromolecular complexes and assemblies using neutron scattering in combination with other experimental approaches. Desirable skills include expertise in biological structure determination using scattering and/or diffraction techniques, protein _expression_ and purification, and molecular simulations. Prior experience in characterizing membrane protein complexes is preferred. You will be involved in structural measurements on a range of macromolecular targets and data analysis using state-of-the-art techniques and facilities available at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States' highest flux reactor-based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world's most intense pulsed accelerator-based neutron source (). You will also have access to a suite of biophysical characterization tools, as well as external synchrotron facilities. The CSMB is a premier research center focused on the characterization of biological systems with relevance to environmental, biotechnological and biomedical systems. It supports the biological small-angle neutron scattering (Bio-SANS) instrument at HFIR and the bio-deuteration laboratory, dedicated to the production of labeled biomolecules, at the SNS. It has an outstanding group of scientists and technical staff focused on basic and applied research, and strong ties to the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility and Center for Nanophase Materials Science.
