[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral Position available - University of Warsaw, Poland



Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention to a post-doctoral position available in my research group.
For all the details, please see the complete call text below.
If you need any further information, please contact me directly.

Best regards,
Paulina Dominiak


An announcement for Post-doctoral position

Position of Post-doctoral Researcher in the OPUS project entitled

"More accurate models of the electrostatic potential of biological macromolecules and organic crystals necessary for proper interpretation of data from cryo-electron microscopy and from electron diffraction – feasibility study"

financed by NCN is open for application.

Project leader: dr hab. Paulina M. Dominiak, prof. UW

Available positions: 1

Project description:
The Dominiak’s group works on developing new methods of electron density modelling for X-ray and electron crystallography, chemistry and structural biology. The project aims at development of new models of electrostatic potentials for electron crystallography. The models will considerably deviate from the conventional spherical independent atom model currently used. With new models more information should be extracted from electron scattering experiments on biological macromolecules and organic crystals, and improved quality of geometric data and quantitative estimates of molecular electrostatic potentials should become easily available. For further information see http://cnbch.uw.edu.pl and http://www.chem.uw.edu.pl.

Position description:
You will be mainly responsible for development and verification of new databanks of atomic electron densities on the basis of existing procures published in: Acta Cryst. 2012, A68, 139; JCTC, 2014, 10, 1652; ChemPhysChem, 2016, 17, 2455; Acta Cryst. 2017, B73, 610.

We are looking for motivated candidates with:

-a PhD degree in chemistry or related fields at the moment of starting the job (PhD defended not later than 7 years ago according to NCN regulations, see www.ncn.gov.pl) -experience in crystallography OR/AND computational chemistry proven by scientific article publications -knowledge of macromolecular crystallography OR/AND proven experience in high-resolution x-ray diffraction charge density measurements -basic programing skills OR/AND practical experience in script usage/writing and proven ability to work with large amount of data -experience with structure refinement against electron diffraction or single particle cryoEM data will be an advantage
-well-developed analytical skills
-good knowledge of written and spoken English
-written and spoken presentation skills
-ability to work as part of a team
We offer:
a temporary employment contract with the University of Warsaw:
-full time position
-a salary approx. 5000 PLN per month (net salary, after taxes and other deductions)
-for one year with a possible extension upto three years
-appointment starting in November 2018 (the competition may be repeated until a suitable candidate who fulfils all requirements is found)

Required documents (in English):
-Curriculum Vitae (including list of scientific articles, conference presentations, awards, international internships, scholarships, workshops, participation in research projects), -a motivation letter (What are your scientific interests? What are your key strengths and achievements? Why do you want to work in the project?),
-information on the processing of personal data (see the text below),
-two recommendation letters (at least one from direct supervisor) sent by the referees directly to prof. Dominiak (pdomin@chem.uw.edu.pl).

Please submit the documents no later than 26 October 2018 to: pdomin@chem.uw.edu.pl (PDF is the preferred format). E-mail entitled: “Post-Doc position”

Selected candidates may be invited by e-mail, no later than 30 October 2018, to participate in interview. The interview will take place on 5 or 6 November 2018 in person or via Skype or phone. The results of the competition will be delivered to selected candidates by e-mail till 15 November 2018. In the case of not signing the contract by the candidate, due to the resignation, we reserve the right to choose the next candidate from the ranking list.
