[SA_scat] Associate Staff Scientist in biological x-ray scatteringat SSRL/SLAC

*/Associate Staff Scientist in biological x-ray scattering at Stanford 
Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource./*

The Structural Molecular Biology (SMB) group at the Stanford Synchrotron 
Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), Stanford University, a national user 
research facility and a Directorate of the SLAC National Accelerator 
Laboratory, has an immediate opening for a Ph.D. scientist with a strong 
experimental background in physicochemical studies of biological 
macromolecules using x-ray scattering techniques. 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.  For additional information on our activities, please visit
