Inquiries are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on 
structural studies of membrane and membrane components in solution, 
using neutron, NMR and computer simulation. This post is a fixed-term 
position of three years. This multi-technique based project is suitable 
for an enthusiastic researcher interested in applying neutronic and 
computer simulation techniques to understand how membranes and their 
protein and lipid components interact give rise to their life-giving 

The successful applicant to this post will be based in the Department of 
Biochemistry at the University of Oxford and will work under the 
supervision of Dr. Sylvia McLain.  He or she will also work with Dr. 
Chris Lorenz (King's College London) as well performing experiments at 
the ISIS Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Didcot, UK).

Applicants should possess a doctorate in physics, chemistry or related 
field.  Previous experience in neutron scattering, particularly in 
diffraction techniques, or computer simulations will be an advantage. 
Applicants should ideally but not necessarily have 1 to 2 years of 
postdoctoral experience.  Informal inquires with CV are welcome and 
should be directed to Dr. Sylvia McLain.
