Beam Line Scientist - Macromolecular Crystallography Group and Structural Biology in the Stanford School of Medicine: 
The Department of Structural Biology in the School of Medicine (Stanford University) and the Structural Molecular Biology (SMB) Group at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL, a division of SLAC) seeks a Beam Line Scientist. The staff member will participate in a strong user support team focusing on providing technical & methodological support for scientific experiments at synchrotron radiation macromolecular crystallography beam lines. Research facilities include computer-controlled instrumentation, robotics, x-ray detectors, extensive server-based compute resources, data acquisition & processing software. Will provide user training & methodology advice for establishing optimized data collection & data reduction strategies; will be responsible for the experimental arrangement & optimization of beam line optics & alignment of instrumentation; troubleshooting of optics and data collection instrumentation. She/he will participate with staff scientists in developm! ental
experiments. Will also participate in the continuous development (design & implementation) of an advanced compute environment; maintain computational resources; implement & upgrade crystallographic software packages, develop scripts & routines for data collection & analysis. Will participate in the development & design of crystallographic instrumentation. 
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Structural Biology or related field and experience in crystallography. Extensive experience with crystallographic data reduction and processing packages & scripting languages is required. Excellent written & verbal communication skills are also required. Experience in synchrotron based measurements and/or instrumentation development with structural molecular biology applications is highly desirable, as is computer networking & server experience. Stanford University is committed to equal opportunity through affirmative action in employment and we are especially eager to identify minority candidates and women with appropriate qualifications.
