End Posting Date

The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States' highest flux reactor based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world's most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 24 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences for more than 3,000 visiting scientists. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.<http://neutrons.ornl.gov/>

The Biology and Soft Matter Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites applications for a post-doctoral structural biologist or macromolecular crystallographer to join its Biology and Biomedical Science group.

Major Duties/Responsibilities

The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary research team investigating the structure and function of biological complexes that are involved in cell-signaling, DNA repair and light harvesting systems. These projects involve multi-task efforts in molecular biology, protein crystallography, small-angle scattering and computational modeling. The position represents an excellent opportunity for researchers to develop their careers and interact with leading scientists from around the world. As an ORNL postdoctoral fellow you will have access to leading small angle scattering and neutron diffraction facilities, biofermentation laboratories, and biophysical characterization laboratories, in addition to in-house small angle X-ray scattering and X-ray diffraction instrumentation.

Qualifications Required

A Ph.D. degree in structural biology or a related field is required. The candidates should have a proven track record in molecular biology techniques including cloning, protein expression and purification, crystallographic analysis data and structure determination and refinement. Additional experience in small angle scattering and/or other biophysical characterization techniques would be a distinct advantage. The candidate should be self-motivated, have good interpersonal, communication and presentational skills and demonstrated ability to interact effectively with staff at all levels and to work within a multi-disciplinary team.
Technical Questions:
Questions regarding the positions can be directed to Dr. Dean Myles (mylesda@ornl.gov<mailto:mylesda@ornl.gov>). Additional Information:
Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five years prior to the date of application and must

complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered. This position is a
temporary, full-time assignment for 24 months.

This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/or hired.

We accept Word(.doc, .docx), Excel(.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint(.ppt, .pptx), Adobe(.pdf), Rich Text Format(.rtf), HTML(.htm,
.hmtl) and text files(.txt) up to 2MB in size. Resumes from third party vendors will not be accepted; these resumes will be deleted and the candidates submitted will not be considered for employment.
