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 Staf
 f Scientist or Staff Scientist, depending on qualification, 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 required. 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, daily operation of an x-ray beam line as well as collaborative research under supervision of a senior scientist. Stanford Uni
 versity is committed to equal opportunity through affirmative action in employment.
