Position: Scientist (Tenure Track)
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: You will work on the implementation and development of sample delivery systems for serial crystallography at the Swiss Light Source SLS and the Swiss X-Ray Free Electron Laser SwissFEL. Within an interdisciplinary team of scientists, you will support PSI efforts in using pump-probe and rapid mixing techniques to study how the structural dynamics of proteins are related to function. Your tasks will be: Implementation of automatic high-viscosity injectors for serial injection of microcrystals; Development rapid-mixing solutions relying on solid supports or injectors; Sample preparation for time-resolved experiments at SLS and SwissFEL; Processing of serial crystallographic data; Support of internal and external users at SLS and SwissFEL; Writing of scientific publications and applications for research funding
Requirements: We expect a completed PhD degree in biochemistry, chemistry or physics with additional post-doctoral education seen as an extra qualification. The ideal candidate has experience with sample delivery and structural biology of membrane proteins using free electron lasers and/or synchrotron radiation documented by scientific publications. Knowledge of optical lasers, time-resolved spectroscopy or experience as beamline scientists are a plus
