[ccp4bb] Research Scientist/Engineer Assistant – Crystallography: in INSTITUTE for PROTEIN DESIGN @Seattle

Research Scientist/Engineer Assistant – Crystallography

Opening: Current

The UW Institute for Protein Design currently has an outstanding opportunity for a Research Scientist Assistant to support peptide and protein crystallography efforts for the IPD’s Structural Biology Core (SBC).  This person will be assigned work under general guidance and receive instruction on specific assignment objectives, complex features, and possible solutions. Guidance on unusual problems will be provided by IPD Faculty, other UW Faculty, or other experts in biophysical characterization and work shall be reviewed for application of sound professional judgment.

The Research Scientist Assistant – SBC will interface directly with members of other IPD Core Laboratories as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in IPD Faculty Laboratories. Research activities will involve setup of crystallization trays, screening for crystal formation and growth using microscopy, operation of X-ray generation sources, and eventually training in data collection and solving structures.  The RSA SBC will grow to be an expert in protein and peptide x-ray crystallography and will therefore be of assistance in optimization of crystallization conditions and support of crystallography needs for the IPD. With the gaining of expertise, high throughput robotics, maintenance and operation of x ray sources and independent operation in crystallography projects.

In this role, ~40% of the effort will be dedicated to the setup and monitoring of crystallography trays.

Another ~20% of effort will be dedicated to maintenance and operation of liquid handling robotics.

The remaining ~40% of effort will, eventually, be dedicated to the maintenance and operation of x-ray generating sources for x-ray diffraction of peptides and proteins.
