My group has several vacancies to fill immediately: a Team Leader for
Infrastructure and Methods Development; two postdoc positions; and a
technician. This is the Protein Crystallography group of the
Structural Genomics Consortium, Oxford.
For details, please see respectively:
Team Leader: http://www.sgc.ox.ac.uk/jobs/07057.html
Feel free to contact me for details.
The remit of the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) is to solve human
proteins of medical relevance and place them in the public domain
without restrictions; it is funded by a consortium of public and
industrial funders, and has independently operating sites in Oxford and
Toronto Universities and Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm). The Oxford
site solved nearly 200 such structures in its first three years, and has
now entered Phase II, with 4 years of funding till June 2011; it now
has an increased emphasis on chemical biology and membrane proteins.
The Protein Crystallography group collaborates tightly with the 5 other
groups to get their purified proteins crystallized and solved -- five
per month, to be precise. As importantly, with all the robotics and
toys you'd care for, and access not only to stacks of real, interesting
samples but also to heaps of structured data accumulated during Phase I,
we're ideally positioned for development and testing of crystallographic
methods, which will be the major scientific thrust of the group in this
Enthusiastic crystallographers, especially those that really enjoy the
nuts and bolts of the technique and mucking around with tricks and toys,
both crystallization and algorithms, are encouraged to apply.
