Industrial Crystallography Positions 
Genetics Institute, Inc 
Cambridge, MA 

 The core technology group at Genetics Institute is housed in a separate 44,000 sq. ft. 
facility, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The facility is equipped with the latest technology 
for modern drug discovery including a 600MHz NMR, X-Ray lab, Computational and 
Medicinal chemistry. The facility houses 70 scientists engaged in the discovery of novel 
treatments of disorders such as Asthma and Rheumatoid arthritis. Crystallography at 
Genetics Institute is a unique opportunity to carry out demanding crystallography on 
biologically interesting targets that will be used in a drug discovery effort. 
 Genetics Institute has an outstanding publication record and has established itself as a 
leader in Selectin biology and the role of cytosolic phospholipase A2 in the production of 
 The X-ray laboratory is a temperature and humidity controlled environment housing 2 
X-ray generators, an Raxis II area detector and 3 Raxis IV detectors. 

Following positions are available in the X-ray crystallography group: 
Staff Scientist: Requires a Ph.D. and a successful postdoctoral 
research  in macromolecular crystallography. 
Crystallisation  Specialist: Requires proven track record in macromolecular 
crystallisations or strong background in protein biochemistry. 
Post Doctoral Researcher: Requires PhD in crystallography.
