[SA_Scat] Hardware postdoc position in the Svergun group,EMBL Hamburg, P12 beamline

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in the EMBLBioSAXS group associated with the hardware and methods development atthe P12 beamline. The work will encompass development of experimentalapproaches for automated high throughput SAXS measurements and newbiological sample environments including in particular, in-situ laserilluminations and time resolved scattering setups for biologicalspecimens. The successful candidate will be involved in the operation ofthe P12 beamline and also in collaborative projects with theinternational users of the beamline.
Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant field (physics, engineering,structural biology) and experience with synchrotron X-ray scattering. Wespecifically welcome applicants with a technical background possessing ahands-on expertise in laser or X-ray instrumentation in biologicalscattering/diffraction. Programming experience will be of advantage.Good communication skills, fluent English and ability to collaboratewith international teams are essential.

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highestranked scientific research organisations in the world. The HeadquartersLaboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites inGrenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).
The EMBL Hamburg Outstation at the DESY campus performs research instructural biology with specific emphasis on the use of synchrotronradiation. EMBL Hamburg runs two macromolecular crystallography (MX)beamlines and a Small Angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) beamline at thehigh-brillance storage ring PETRA III. The EMBL BioSAXS group of theEMBL has a strong experience in SAXS data collection, analysis andinterpretation, and runs a dedicated biological solution scatteringbeamline P12 on Petra III ring providing support to hundreds users per year.
