Dear Small-Angle Scatterers,

Below is an announcement of the postdoctoral position in Biological SAXS 
at EMBL-Hamburg:

The EMBL Hamburg Outstation at the DESY campus performs research in 
structural biology with specific emphasis on the use of synchrotron 
radiation. EMBL Hamburg runs two macromolecular crystallography (MX) 
beamlines and a Small Angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) beamline at the 
high-brillance storage ring PETRA-3.The EMBL BioSAXS group of the EMBL 
has a strong experience in SAXS data collection, analysis and 
interpretation, and runs a dedicated biological solution scattering 
beamline on Petra-3 ring providing support for over a hundred groups per 

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in the BioSAXS 
group. The successful candidate will be involved in the collaborative 
work on the SAXS studies of anticancer drug carriers, and in the 
operation of the P12 beamline. The work will encompass development of 
new experimental approaches and biological sample environments 
including, in particular, anomalous and time resolved scattering on 
biological specimens.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant field (physics, engineering, 
structural biology) and experience with synchrotron X-ray scattering. We 
specifically welcome applicants with a technical background possessing a 
hands-on expertise in X-ray instrumentation and in biological 
scattering/diffraction. Good communication skills, fluent English and 
ability to collaborate with international teams are essential.
