WAXS). The successful candidate will be expected to collaborate with
visiting research groups collecting data at MacCHESS. Activities will
include applying state-of-the art algorithms to BioSAXS data,
modeling macromolecular complexes, or studying conformationally variable
regions of proteins. Experience in developing hardware and
software for automation including microfluidics is also desirable.
Located on an ivy-league university campus in picturesque upstate New
