[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral position for XFEL crystallography/spectroscopy at Berkeley Lab

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to study metalloenzymes using X-ray crystallography and spectroscopy at X-ray free electron lasers. The fellow will work in the Kern/Yachandra/Yano group (http://www2.lbl.gov/vkyachan/ and http://biosciences.lbl.gov/profiles/jan-florian-kern/) at Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging Division. We have been conducting a number of XFEL experiments on several different systems and recent publications include:

Chatterjee et al J Synchr Rad 2019 https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1107/S1600577519007550
Kern et al, Nature 2018 https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0681-2
Fuller et al, Nature Methods 2017 http://www.nature.com/nmeth/journal/v14/n4/abs/nmeth.4195.html
Kubin et al Structural Dynamics 2017 https://aca.scitation.org/doi/10.1063/1.4986627
Young et al Nature 2016 https://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v540/n7633/full/nature20161.html

Ideally the candidate should have a good background in one or more of the following fields:
- Macromolecular crystallography
- X-ray spectroscopy of dilute transition metal systems/biological systems.
- Designing of experimental setups for use at synchrotron/X-ray free laser facilities.
