Fri Sep 3 18:00:39 CEST 2010
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in structural biology/chemistry funded by the National Science Foundation for a fixed-term duration of two years and administered jointly by the Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The successful applicant will be stationed at the recently upgraded High Flux Isotope Reactor of ORNL She/he will participate in the operation of a new single-crystal diffractometer to be installed at the cold-neutron guide hall and in development of the science program in supra and macromolecule neutron crystallography. Research will focus primarily on the development and application of high resolution neutron crystallography which allows to visualize light elements in crystallographic structures.
She/he should possess a PhD degree in physics, chemistry or structural biology, should have excellent technical, scientific writing and communication skills, should be self motivated and able to work effectively within multi-disciplinary teams. Background in neutron or X-ray scattering and previous experience in crystallographic data collection and reduction and structure refinement are advantages.
This post represents an excellent opportunity for a young postdoctoral scientist to develop his/her expertise, broaden his/her experience and interact with leading scientists from around the world.
Applications will be accepted through MTSU's webpage (https://mtsujobs.mtsu.edu) until the position is filled.
Please contact the project PIs: Tibor Koritsanky (MTSU; charge density analysis; tkoritsa at mtsu.edu); Flora Meilleur (NCSU/ORNL; structural biology; meilleurf at ornl.gov); Bryan Chakoumakos (ORNL; structural chemistry; chakoumakobc at ornl.gov) if you have further questions.
