Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Structural Biology

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Structural Biology
Employer
ILL
Location
Grenoble, France
Introduction
X-ray crystallography is the most-prolific technique in Structural Biology, but suffers from radiation damage, which limits the accuracy of the macromolecular structures. The introduction of cryo-cooling techniques greatly reduced the global radiation damage rate and was standardized on all X-ray crystallography beamlines at Synchrotrons over the past decades. X-ray damage signature is visible on diffraction patterns with loss of resolution, but also in electron density maps, with visible damage on acidic residues and their decarboxylation, as well as the breakage of disulfide bridges. To further understand the origin and differences in damage specificities between residues within a crystalline protein, we will use a combination of neutron and X-ray crystallography. Neutron crystallography will provide critical information on the protonation states of the various acidic residues, without damaging the crystalline material, while the damage will be then monitored with X-rays. We therefore are looking for a highly motivated Structural Biologist with demonstrated experience in macromolecular crystallography. The ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of this methodology and broad experience using the computational tools required for structure determination.

Neutron Instrument Scientist for Molecular Spectroscopy Group
01. May 2020 - Science and Technology Facilities Council
Neutron Instrument Scientist for Molecular Spectroscopy Group
Employer
Science and Technology Facilities Council
Location
Didcot, UK
Introduction
The ISIS Neutron & Muon Source is a world-leading centre for research in the physical and life sciences at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford in the United Kingdom. Our suite of neutron and muon instruments gives unique insights into the properties of materials at the atomic scale. We support a national and international community of more than 3000 scientists for research into subjects ranging from clean energy and the environment, pharmaceuticals and health care, through to nanotechnology and materials engineering, catalysis and polymers and on to fundamental studies of materials. The Molecular Spectroscopy Group at ISIS develops and operates a set of world-class neutron spectrometers, IRIS, OSIRIS, TOSCA and VESUVIO, that access structure and dynamics over a very wide energy range. The techniques offer insights into diffusional mechanisms, rotations, phonon or bond vibrations, and quantum effects in the zero point energy, in a wide variety of materials across the physical, chemical and biophysical sciences. Materials studied include those relevant for energy applications and catalysis, biologically active and soft condensed matter, and many other functional materials.
Description of Institution
The ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), a world-leading multi-disciplinary science organisation. STFC is one of the nine entities that constitute UK Research and Innovation, a new body which works in partnership with universities, research organisations, businesses, charities,and government to create the best possible environment for research and innovation to flourish.

How to Apply
An open source code sample that may be used for evaluation purposes will be required during the application process. Your code sample should be related in some way to the subject of this post. It should be object-oriented, contain five or more classes, show a sophisticated understanding of the project and be your sole work to a very high degree (>95%). Samples in Fortran are not acceptable. Ideally the code sample would be made available on GitHub or a similar sharing platform, although submissions by email are fine too.
