|The Macromolecular Diffraction Facility of the Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source (MacCHESS) has an opening for a Staff Scientist (Research Associate) to pursue the development of novel techniques in x-ray scattering as applied to structural biology, and to support users at MacCHESS. There will also be opportunities to pursue projects in structural biology, using current crystallographic and SAXS methods. Research areas of particular interest include structure solution from multiple crystals, use of Laue diffraction, BioSAXS, microfluidics, and user interfaces for beamline operation. A Ph.D. in structural biology, biophysics, or a related field, and at least 3 years of experience beyond the degree in a relevant field is required. A solid publication record is essential, and experience working at a synchrotron facility is highly desirable. Excellent communication skills are a must, including fluency in the English language. Appointments are nominally for three years with the possibility for renewal, subject to mutual satisfaction and the availability of funds.
Located on an Ivy League university campus in picturesque upstate New York, the Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) serves a world-wide user base of structural biologists, chemists, physicists, and engineers. MacCHESS is an NIH-supported National Resource providing support for structural biology at CHESS. MacCHESS is a heavily team-oriented environment.
Applications should be submitted at http://academicjobsonline.org/ and should include a cover letter, a CV, a list of publications, and a detailed summary of research experience and interests. Applicants must arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent, as per instructions on the academicjobsonline website. The job is available immediately.
Cornell is an equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer.|
