Dear colleagues.
I would very much appreciate it if you could bring this announcement to
the attention of potential 
Best wishes
Hiro Tsuruta
Associate Staff Scientist in biological x-ray scattering at Stanford
Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.
The Structural Molecular Biology (SMB) group at the Stanford Synchrotron
Radiation Laboratory (SSRL), 
Stanford University, a national user research facility and a Directorate
of the Stanford Linear Accelerator 
Center, seeks a Ph.D. scientist with a strong experimental background in
physicochemical studies of 
biological macromolecules. The scientist is expected to engage in
methodological and technological 
developments in structural biology using small angle x-ray scattering
techniques and collaborative research 
projects that take advantage of the developments.  The scientist is
furthermore required to participate in the 
daily operation and user support of an insertion-device small angle
x-ray scattering facility dedicated to 
structural studies on mostly non-crystalline biological systems.  The
scientist will be appointed as a Stanford 
University Academic Staff - Research Associate with working title of
Associate Staff Scientist for initially 
3 years, and with full employee benefits. The appointment is renewable,
subject to performance and grant 
funding status.
The candidate must have a Ph.D. or equivalent academic degree in
biophysics, physical biochemistry, 
biophysical chemistry, structural biology or a closely related
scientific discipline, working on biological 
macromolecules and/or assemblies. Demonstrated experimental skills in
protein or nucleic acid physical 
chemistry and x-ray scattering/diffraction techniques are required.
Considerable experience in instrument 
development is desirable. Postdoctoral research or comparable training
is preferred. The candidate must 
have demonstrated ability to work in a team environment, and possess
excellent communication and 
interpersonal skills to work effectively with a diverse group of
scientists, technical staff as well as external 
users.  She/he should be a highly motivated individual and is expected
to play a key role in 
methodology/instrumentation developments and collaborative research
under supervision of a senior 
scientist. Stanford University is committed to equal opportunity through
affirmative action in employment.
