Description of Institution

The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), the United States’ highest flux reactor based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world’s most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scattering research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences.

Purpose:
The Biology and Soft Matter Division (BSMD) in the Neutron Sciences Directorate invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. This position will consist of a mix of protein expression, purification and crystallization followed by X-ray and neutron data collection and refinement. Research will focus on the role of class A B-lactamase enzymes in antibiotic resistance and the study of proteins involved in ion transportation.

Job description
  • Reports to the MaNDi Lead Instrument Scientist
  • Will be part of the Energy and Environment groups and will be expected to take part in all group activities, to include seminars and weekly meetings.
  • Publish multiple scientific papers on collaborative and independent research
  • Present scientific results at appropriate national and international meetings and conferences
  • Ensure compliance with environment, safety, health and quality program requirements
  • Maintain strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of values and ethics
  • Physical requirements for this job include the use of hand and eye protection gear, kneeling, sitting for extended periods of time, extensive work at chemical laboratories, and possible exposure to ionizing radiation normally associated with operation of neutron scattering instruments for scientific research.

This position is a temporary, full-time assignment of 24 months.

Requested Profile

The applicant must have a Ph.D. in structural Biology, chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science or a related field.
Must have a strong expertise in protein expression and purification and X-ray crystallography. Candidates must demonstrate a record of self-motivated work, good interpersonal communication and excellent presentational skills.
The date of application must be within 5 years of the most recent degree, and all degree requirements must be complete before starting the appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered.
