BioMAX Beamline Postdoc position at Lund University 497 views

MAX IV, MX group is a Swedish national large-scale research laboratory hosted by Lund University and BioMAX is the first macromolecular crystallography beamline at MAX IV. BioMAX is a state-of-the-art beamline with high performance x-ray optics and control systems.  It is geared towards high-throughput protein crystallography and it can handle conventional MX experiments as well as microfocus applications. The group is looking for a postdoctoral scientist who enjoys working in an international and creative environment to join the BioMAX beamline team.

About the project:
  • The selected candidate will be involved in an in-house project to develop room temperature data collection facilities at BioMAX.
  • The project involves different aspects, from development of data collection strategies, research on radiation damage mitigation and sample environment to the development of data collection pipelines for handling multi-crystal partial data sets.
  • The main work tasks will be:
  • Participation in in-house method development research and internal and collaborative science projects in the field of macromolecular crystallography.
  • Shared responsibilities for operation of BioMAX in close collaboration with the team of scientists and engineers of the MX group and MAX IV staff and the support (technical and scientific) of external users during their experimental beam time.
  • Dissemination and education activities directed to MAX IV users and the wide MX community.


  • Applicant must hold PhD or equivalent in Physics, Chemistry, or another field relevant to the beamline.
  • Documented research activities using chemical or macromolecular crystallography, or of crystallography methods development.
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a team, but also an ability to work independently.
  • Good communication skills and an excellent command of English, both oral and written.
  • Experience in operation and use of instrumentation for protein crystallography experiments at either synchrotrons or XFELs is a significant merit.
  • Extensive experience and knowledge in the use of crystallographic software is a significant merit.
