Postdoctoral Associate Position at Cornell University in Biomolecular Small-Angle X-ray Scattering and X-ray Crystallography
One or two postdoctoral positions are available in small-angle x-ray scattering and x-ray crystallography of biomolecules in the group of Prof. Robert Thorne in the Physics Department at Cornell University (www.lassp.cornell.edu/Thorne/). The focus of the work will be on developing and applying new experimental, analysis, and modeling methods for high-throughput cryogenic temperature SAXS and for high-throughput variable temperature crystallography. The work may involve protein _expression_ and purification, X-ray data collection (at CHESS, APS, or NSLS), laboratory-based experiments, analysis method development, and modeling, as well as CAD design, microfabrication, and hardware fabrication and assembly, depending upon the skills and interests of the successful applicant(s) Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biophysics, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry or related fields. Relevant areas of experience include bioSAXS data collection, analysis and modeling; X-ray crystallography and crystallographic refinement; protein _expression_, purification, and crystallization; and laboratory apparatus design, machining, and assembly; and microfabrication.
The initial Postdoctoral Associate appointment will be for one year, with the expectation for renewal for at least one additional year. Start dates are flexible, and can be as early as March 2019.
Application material should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete applications will include a brief cover letter, a CV, a detailed summary of research experience and interests, and three letters of recommendation. Recommendation letters, if not initially provided, will be requested after application screening.
