Serial Synchrotron Crystallography is a rapidly emerging technique in which the ESRF has plays a leading role thanks to the Extremely Brilliant Source upgrade (https://www.esrf.eu/about/upgrade). ID29, the new beamline for serial and time-resolved macromolecular crystallography at room temperature, delivers an unprecedented flux density, allowing the recording of diffraction data from micron-sized samples in a few microseconds. Microfocus ID23-2 beamline offers one of the highest flux densities in the world in combination with high throughput sample handling and the ability to be a testbed for new delivery devices. Finally, microfocus MASSIF-3 beamline offers similar flux densities to ID23-2 with the additional feature of having been adapted to serial injection experiments. Beamline operations are supported by a dedicated sample preparation laboratory where the most suitable crystal delivery systems can be prepared and characterised prior to experiments.
As beamline scientist the main duties will be:
The salary will be calculated on the basis of relevant qualifications and professional experience.
