Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov) delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation's future. Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 37 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research. The Lab is primarily supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science. Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) operates and manages the Laboratory for DOE. BSA is a partnership between Battelle and The Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University.
Brookhaven National Laboratory is entering an exciting new chapter with one of the newest and most advanced synchrotron facilities in the world. National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) enables the study of material properties and functions with nanoscale resolution and exquisite sensitivity by providing world-leading capabilities for X-ray imaging and high-resolution energy analysis.
This facility is open to users from academia and industry and its operations are at a time when the world enters a new era with a global economy fueled largely by scientific discoveries and technological innovations. NSLS-II provides the research tools needed to foster new discoveries and create breakthroughs in critical areas such as energy security, environment, and human health.
The Center for BioMolecular Structure at the National Synchrotron Light Source-II (NSLS-II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory seeks a postdoctoral research associate to join our program that operates two state-of-the-art macromolecular crystallography (MX) beamlines, a life-sciences scattering beamline, and a cryo-EM facility. The successful researcher who joins our multi-national multi-disciplinary team will expand the scientific capabilities of the Frontier Macromolecular Crystallography (FMX) beamline's unsurpassed brightness and micro-focus beam. The project will establish room temperature and time-resolved serial synchrotron crystallography at the FMX beamline, in a close collaboration with our colleagues at the BNL Biology department, with the goal to study dynamic processes in proteins such as enzymatic reactions. The position is a two-year term appointment.
