Beamline Scientist at the BioCAT Beamline at the Advanced Photon Source

The Biophysics Collaborative Access Team (BioCAT) at the Illinois Institute of Technology operates the world-class biological small angle X-ray scattering and diffraction beamline 18-ID at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (near Chicago, IL).

BioCAT is seeking a Ph.D. level scientist to lead the solution small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) user program. You will serve as a beamline scientist, supporting in-person and remote/mail-in users of the BioCAT facility. You will have primary responsibility for supporting SAXS users at the beamline and maintaining the state-of-the-art sample preparation and sample delivery and characterization equipment. You will also collaborate scientifically with users and other beamline staff.

Preference will be given to candidates with significant experience in hands-on biological macromolecular purification and biophysical characterization. Significant structural biology experience is also highly desirable. Extensive experience with small angle scattering (either of neutrons or X-rays) is an asset, but training in this technique can be provided on the job.

For further information about the position, please contact BioCAT Director Tom Irving (irving@iit.edu) or Deputy Director Jesse Hopkins (jhopkins1@iit.edu). Applications received by August 9th are guaranteed full consideration, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Full description of the responsibilities and qualifications as well as guidance for applying are available here.
