[ccp4bb] Two openings for postdoctoral fellows at Berkeley National Lab

We are looking for two postdoctoral fellows to work on methods development for time resolved structural and spectroscopic studies on enzymes using X-rays, especially X-ray free electron lasers (XFELs). The fellows will work in the Kern/Yachandra/Yano group (http://www2.lbl.gov/vkyachan/ and http://biosciences.lbl.gov/profiles/jan-florian-kern/) at Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging Division. We have been conducting a number of XFEL experiments on several different systems and some recent publications include: 

Fuller et al, Nature Methods 2017 http://www.nature.com/nmeth/journal/v14/n4/abs/nmeth.4195.html

Young et al Nature 2016 https://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v540/n7633/full/nature20161.html

Sierra et al Nature Methods 2016 https://www.nature.com/nmeth/journal/v13/n1/full/nmeth.3667.html

Kern et al Nature Communications 2014 https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms5371

Ideally the candidates should have a good background in one or more of the following fields:

- Macromolecular crystallography
- Microfluidics or stopped-flow instrumentation and application to enzyme studies.
- X-ray spectroscopy of dilute transition metal systems/biological systems.
- Designing of experimental setups for use at synchrotron/X-ray free laser facilities.
- Electrochemistry of redox active enzymes.
