The Biosciences Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is focused on advancing science and technology to better understand complex biological systems and their relationship with the environment. The Division has expertise and special facilities in genomics, computational biology, microbiology, microbial ecology, biophysics and structural biology, and plant sciences.
The Biological and Nanoscale Systems Group is an interdisciplinary group that focuses on technology development with specific interests in biological imaging, biocompatible micro- and nanofabrication techniques, and synthetic biology. The group maintains comprehensive resources in molecular biology and in molecular and cellular imaging. The team leverages off of the advanced fabrication capabilities of ORNL’s Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences and the structural characterization abilities available at ORNL’s Neutron Science facilities.
We are seeking a full-time staff scientist. In this position you will be expected to lead independent research as well as collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to advance the physical and structural characterization of biological systems. Your primary focus area will be bioenergy related research. Your key responsibilities will be to develop and apply protein expression systems that lead to the structural-functional characterization of protein-ligand interactions, membrane proteins, and protein complexes.
In this position you will:
