Introduction

The Scientific Activities Division (SAD) at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden, invites applications for a Laboratory Technician.

Description of Institution

The Scientific Activities Division (SAD) is responsible for the scientific support laboratories, sample environment and user office at the ESS. During the ESS construction phase, SAD is building the infrastructure and technical competence to operate the equipment that will control parameters such as temperatures, pressures, (gas) mixtures, humidity during neutron experiments.

Job description

You will be working closely with scientists, engineers and other technicians on ‘Sample Environment Systems for Fluids incl. Liquids, Vapors, Gases and Complex Fluids’ (FLUCO) required for neutron scattering experiments connected mainly to chemistry and soft condensed matter research. The main field of work will be operating and optimizing commercially available laboratory analytical equipment for the use with neutrons. The equipment includes potentiostats for electrochemistry, optical spectrometers (FT-IR, UV/VIS, Raman) and gas characterization instrumentation (mass spectrometry, gas analysis). Once ESS is in operation in a few years from now, these characterization methods will be used during in-situ experiments on the neutron scattering instruments. In order to plan for that, sample cells for these methods will need to be designed and/or adjusted to the demands of neutron scattering. You will work with the FLUCO work unit leader to develop and test the sample cells in the laboratory and if needed on neutron scattering instruments. Writing documentation of the altered equipment including safety analysis as well as initiating – when necessary – the safety certification of the equipment are part of the job. Similarly, you will be required to participate in fitting, maintaining and operating the corresponding sample environment workshop spaces. Due to the strong link between these sample environment systems and equipment for the chemistry laboratories, you will work up to 50% with the team for ‘Sample and User Laboratories (SULF).
Later-on the work will increasingly shift towards ESS’ operations when visiting scientists and students (users) will come to the ESS to perform neutron scattering experiments. The responsibilities will then be split between keeping up-to-date with development of lab instrumentation, setting up the developed sample environment equipment on the instruments and helping the users operating it. Training for such operational tasks early on is essential to support the hot commissioning of instruments and to ensure science success.

The position is permanent with six months initial probationary period, the position is to be filled as soon as possible. Your work place will be situated in Lund, Sweden.

Requested Profile

You have a bachelor-level qualification or at least 2 years of education in chemistry / laboratory work supplying a strong background in chemistry to support the link between sample environment and the chemistry laboratories and to educate FLUCO technical personnel on relevant chemical topics. With master-level qualification and as the team grows there is a future development possibility for the role of an engineer.

Excellence in soft skills is needed. More precisely, we expect:
• experience in using laboratory characterization equipment
• experience in handling chemicals including hazardous chemicals and gases
• fundamental knowledge of chemistry and chemical equipment (making standard solutions, setting up glassware, dealing with waste)
• willingness and curiosity to learn new analytical techniques not only through classes but also self-taught and by trial-and-error methods if needed
• good communication skills
• good knowledge of spoken and written English
• experience in spectroscopy is a plus
• experience in lab management is a plus
• didactic skills are a plus

A pro-active way of working and being able to multi-task are essential. Interacting skillfully with people and working well in a team are important. Although this is not a research job it opens the possibility to develop new tools and test them in a scientific environment. Furthermore, the required support given to users from all nations and backgrounds during their neutron scattering experiments opens up the possibility to learn about a wide variety of applications of in-situ measurement methods and the satisfaction of helping the user to scientific success.

At ESS it will be as important to be able to work independently and push the work forward as it will be needed to function well in international teams. You need to be able to work in a workplace continuously changing and to keep calm. Preference will be given to candidates with hands-on experience from existing facilities.

The evaluation will be based on technical qualification. However, it is important that you recognize the value of consulting others in order to succeed. A development project such as this requires the ability to adapt and cope with changing circumstances and as working in an international environment will challenge your ability to handle cultural diversity, it is important that you have successfully managed this in previous employments. Experience of working in an international environment is essential and we expect you to be fluent in written and spoken English.

As a person you are positive, open minded, creative, organized and motivated. You need to be able to cope with projects in development, which can involve changing project directions and frames. To make all interests meet it is important to be able to both listen to input, but still to be able to make decision to move forward.

Introduction

Program “Stable lipid bilayers past the boiling point of water”
ArchaeoMembranes ANR 2017 ANR-17-CE11-0012-01 (2018-2022)

Compartimentalization is a key point in the evolution of life, since it allowed to form cells, and define an inside and an outside. It allowed cells to create chemical gradients and harvest their energy. Stability of membranes of organisms living near hydrothermal vents still remains problematic, since high temperatures increase molecular motion of membrane lipids, leading to increased permeability, and decreased rigidity. Thus, under such fluctuating conditions, a lipid membrane bilayer is expected to have limited stability and high permeability. The archetypical adaptative strategy in hyperthermophilic organisms is the synthesis of membrane-spanning, dipolar tetraether lipids, which yield more rigid and less permeable membranes. Interestingly, several hyperthermophilic archaea capable of growth at or above the boiling point of water and unable to synthesize bipolar lipids have been isolated and characterized in recent years. How these organisms maintain stable and functional membranes is an open question.

Recently, a novel membrane architecture was proposed to explain the stability of lipid membrane bilayers in the hyperthermophilic archaeaon Thermococcus barophilus. This novel membrane architecture predicts the presence of apolar lipids in the mid-plane of the bilayer, which would limit charge transfers between the two sides of the membrane, leading to a decrease in proton and water permeability, as well as an increase of membrane rigidity, providing a rationale for the ability of this organism to withstand temperatures above the boiling point of water [2]. These observations have important impact on how we understand membrane adaptation to extreme environments, but more importantly on possible scenarios for the membranes of the first cells.

Job description

In the framework of the ANR ArcheaoMembranes project, we will realize the total synthesis of several archaeal lipids with varied polar headgroups in order to explore the mecanical and chemical properties of archaeal membranes as a function of different stressors (temperature, salinity, hydrostatic pressure). The aim of this project is to 1) demonstrate experimentally the validity of the novel membrane architecture, 2) explore its physical and chemical parameters, 3) characterize the impact of the presence of apolar lipids on membrane biological function (proton and water permeability, fluidity, viscosity, rigidity) and 4) determine the relative contribution of each lipid type (monopolar, apolar,) and lipid moiety (polar head-group, core) on membrane physical parameters, in order to build a comprehensive model of the archaeal membrane and reconstruct the new adaptative routes taken by these specific hyperthermophilic archaea.

Requested Profile

We are looking for a motivated candidate with a background in biophysics, analytical chemistry or chemical physics.

Experience with lipids is a plus but is not required.

This is an ANR funded post-doctoral position for a total of 2 years (1 year renewable 1 year). The candidate will be performing experiments in Lyon within the AME group, and perform measurements at large facilities such as the ILL neutron source (Grenoble, https://www.ill.eu/), the TGIR RMN (Bordeaux, http://ir-rmn.fr/) which are partners of this program, and long time collaborators (TU Dortmund, Imperial College
London). The AME team is working on deciphering the adaptation to extreme environments. It is currentle composed of 9 members. A short summary of the program is available here.
