Prior experience in structure solution by crystallography or cryo-EM is essential, whilst the rest of the pipeline described above would be preferred.
The successful candidate will work alongside other structural biologists as well as part of multidisciplinary project teams, with their contributions supporting chemistry design throughout R&D. Excellent oral and written communication skills and the ability to work in multidisciplinary project teams are highly desirable qualities for this position.
- Structure solution (by crystallography or cryo-EM) of proteins and protein-ligand complexes
- Effectively communicate results through presentations, e-mails and reports
- Troubleshoot and share learnings and insights with the team in a timely manner
- Organisational duties around lab hardware, consumables and software as well as HSE considerations
- PhD or MSc degree in structural biology or a related field
- 1-3 years experience in practical macromolecular crystallography, ideally across a wide range of protein families
- Demonstrate a willingness to learn additional skills both within own discipline but also other areas in the team
- Excellent written and spoken communication skills as well as good computer literacy
