BioMAX Postdoctoral Fellowship (Physics, Chemistry): Lund University
BioMAX is the first macromolecular crystallography beamline at MAX IV. The MX is also developing MicroMAX, a serial crystallography beamline for studying protein dynamics and it manages a crystallographic fragment screening facility at MAX IV, FragMAX.
The group is looking for a postdoc scientist who enjoys working in an international and creative environment to join the BioMAX beamline team.
The selected candidate will be involved in an in-house project to develop room-temperature data collection facilities at BioMAX. This project involves different aspects, from the 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.
- Participation in method development research and internal and collaborative science projects in the field of macromolecular crystallography.
- Responsibilities for the operation of BioMAX in close collaboration with the team of scientists and engineers of the MX group and MAX IV staff and the support of external users during their experimental beam time.
- Dissemination and education activities directed to MAX IV users and the wide MX community.
- Ph.D. or equivalent in Physics, Chemistry, or any field relevant to the beamline.
- Documented research activities using chemical or macromolecular crystallography, or of crystallography methods development.
- Ability to work in a team, but also an ability to work independently.
- Good communication skills, and excellent command of English.
- Experience in operation and use of instrumentation for protein crystallography experiments at either synchrotrons or XFELs is significant merit.
- Experience and knowledge using crystallographic software are significant merit.
