Structural Biochemistry Laboratory RIKEN SPring-8

BL-45XU (funded by RIKEN) is the first undulator SAXS beamline at SPring-8.
The beamline has been used for the protein solution scattering, the fiber
diffraction from oriented sols of filamentous protein assembly and the fiber
diffraction from muscle. The successful candidate would be involved in the
instrumentation of the beamline and the associated apparatus, measurements
and data analysis of the solution scattering and diffraction experiments.
The scientist should also be involved in a project to analyze the
protein-protein interaction between smooth muscle myosin and actin, by
employing the advanced solution X-ray scattering system coupled with a
high-pressure stopped-flow mixer.

The position is funded from Apr. 2001 to Mar. 2005 for 4 years. (First 2
months is a probation period, thereafter the contract will be automatically
renewed  every year.)

Ph.D. degrees in science or engineering are preferable.  Masterís degree is
also acceptable.
Previous experiences in measurements at synchrotron X-ray beamlines are not
required. However strong interests in physical measurements and
instrumentation would be advantageous.

CV, publication list, two reference letters including one written by the
present supervisor of the candidate (each reference letter must be enclosed
by the author), reprints of publications (max. three) and a short
description (in an A4 sheet) about the previous research activities and the
future plan should be sent to Dr. Tetsuro Fujisawa before 17st Feb, 2001.
