Dear Small Angle Scatterers,

Please share this notice with potential candidates.

A post-doctoral position<https://www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu/postings/21288> is available immediately in the Grant Lab in the Department of Structural Biology at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, NY, USA.

Our group is currently seeking postdoctoral candidates to develop novel computational algorithms combining crystallography and solution scattering to aid in drug discovery.

The successful completion of the project will impact many fields from drug discovery and development to basic biological processes. An excellent opportunity for creative, out-of-the-box thinkers who are self-motivated. Candidates will have the opportunity and support to present their research findings at national and international conferences and in high-impact scientific journals. The positions are for an initial term of two years with possibilities for renewal based on performance and available funding. Compensation will be commensurate with experience.

Minimum Qualifications
A PhD degree in structural or computational biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science or related fields.

Preferred Qualifications
Proficiency in computer programming, in particular Python. Excellent oral and written communication skills for presenting research at conferences and in scholarly journals. Background in physics or mathematics is a plus, in particular familiarity with concepts of Fourier transforms and diffraction. Experience with structural biology techniques such as crystallography and solution X-ray scattering is a plus.

Interested candidates can apply on the UBJobs website here: https://www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu/postings/21288
