Postdoctoral Fellowship: Biological Small Angle Scattering  
EMBL site: EMBL Hamburg

Commencing date: As soon as possible, after closing date

Job description: Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in
structural biology at the EMBL Outstation in Hamburg, Germany. The position
will be financed from the HFSP Research Grant Ref. RGP 55/2006 and the task
of the successful candidate will be to develop and apply computational
methods for the joint use of small-angle scattering and crystallography in
the study of large macromolecular complexes, in particular, eukaryotic
ribosomes and their translation initiation complexes. The position is within
in the biological SAXS group, which has an extensive record of SAXS software
development and of running a user-oriented synchrotron radiation beamline.
This will provide a stimulating local working environment and extensive
possibilities for collaboration. 

Qualifications and experience: The candidate must hold a PhD and have a
proven scientific record in structural biology, scientific programming or
bioinformatics. Experience in developing and implementing data analysis
algorithms is required. Knowledge of X-ray scattering techniques and/or
macromolecular crystallography would be advantageous. Good communication
skills and ability to collaborate with international teams are essential.

Contract: An initial contract of 2 years' duration with a possibility of
extension depending on the funding will be offered to the successful

Closing date: 1 November 2006
