Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA
The Neutron Scattering Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites applications for a post-doctoral molecular biologist or structural biologist to join its Large Scale Structures group. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary research team investigating the structure and function of biological complexes that are involved in, for example, cellulose synthesis, biomass deconstruction and cell-signaling. These projects involve multi-task efforts in molecular biology, protein crystallography, small–angle scattering and computational modeling. The position represents an excellent opportunity for researchers to develop their careers and interact with leading scientists from around the world. As an ORNL postdoctoral fellow you will have access to leading small angle scattering and neutron diffraction facilities, biofermentation laboratories, and biophysical characterization laboratories, in addition to in-house small angle X-ray scattering and X-ray diffraction instrumentation. The position represents an excellent opportunity for researchers to develop their careers and interact with leading scientists from around the world.
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. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.
