Member States of EMBL (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France,
Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal,
Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom) are advised that
applications are being sought for the following position at the
Hamburg Outstation.

The EMBL Hamburg Outstation carries out extensive research in
structural biology, largely based on the use of synchrotron radiation
at DESY. The activities include technology and methods developments in
X-ray crystallography, Small Angle X-ray Scattering and X-ray
Absorption Spectroscopy, and a wide spectrum of biological research
projects. EMBL Hamburg operates seven synchrotron beamlines that are
available to the international user community and to in-house research
activities. The unit is involved in the design of new, state-of-the-
art synchrotron radiation beamlines for life science applications at
the PETRA ring that will become operational in 2007.

                            STAFF SCIENTIST
              IN BIOLOGICAL SMALL ANGLE X-RAY SCATTERING

Grade :          8
Duty Station :   Hamburg, Germany
Commencing Date :As soon as possible after closing date
Job Description :We are seeking a scientist who will play a critical
                 role in the Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)
                 research activity at EMBL-Hamburg. The postholder
                 will be involved in scientific maintenance
                 (development of the beamline facilities, methods and
                 technology) and external user support on the
                 biological SAXS synchrotron radiation beamline at
                 the DORIS storage ring at DESY. The successful
                 candidate is expected to contribute to the planning
                 of a new biological SAXS beamline at the PETRA
                 storage ring (in collaboration with the local
                 instrumentation group). There will be opportunities
                 to link independent but related research activities
                 with the operation of the beamline. The post will be
                 associated with the current SAXS team of Dr. Dmitri
                 Svergun.
Qualifications   Applicants should have PhD in a relevant field,
and Experience:  sufficient record of independent research, significant 
                 scientific accomplishments and expertise in structure 
                 analysis of biological macromolecules using diffraction
                 methods. Previous experience in hardware and/or
                 software development for synchrotron radiation
                 beamlines would be advantageous. Excellent
                 communication skills and ability to supervise and
                 collaborate in international team environment will
                 be essential.
