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 
-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)

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 at chem.uw.edu.pl).

Please submit the documents no later than 26 October 2018 to:
