[ccp4bb] Position available: Beamline scientist BioMAX (Teamleader FragMAX)


I would like to draw your attention to the following position available at the MAX IV Laboratory:

Beamline scientist BioMAX (Teamleader FragMAX)

BioMAX is the first operational beamline for macromolecular crystallography at MAX IV and runs within the MAX IV user program for the last 3 years. The beamline is a state-of-the-art beamline geared towards high-throughput protein crystallography with high performance x-ray optics and control systems, goniometry, x-ray detectors and a cryogenic sample changer (see also: http://www.maxiv.se/biomax). The beamline is able to provide remote access to the users. As part of the user facilities available at BioMAX, we are developing the FragMAX platform, with the aim to develop and operate a crystallographic fragment screening facility at MAX IV.

The beamline is operated by the international and interdisciplinary BioMAX team, which is part of the MX-group. Within the MX group we are also constructing and developing MicroMAX, a serial crystallography beamline for studying protein dynamics.

We are now looking for a beam line scientist who will lead the FragMAX project team. We think you enjoy working in an international and creative environment. You will join our team working at the BioMAX beamline to further develop the FragMAX screening platform. This includes constant development of relevant processes to carry out fragment screening at all levels of our support chain, support of users during screening experiments and standard beamline support, collaborations with external partners such as the LP3 laboratory, industrial partners as well as other international collaborators and future FragMAX user communities.

You are expected to work both independently and in close collaboration with the entire BioMAX team and with academic and industrial collaboration partners. User support will be an important part of the activity. The MX environment will provide opportunities for collaborative work at the frontiers of the field structural biology.
