Research Engineer, Serial Crystallography Data Analysis

Research and graduate education at the department of chemistry and molecular biology comprises a wide scientific field from the atomic and molecular levels all the way through cells to intact organisms. Much of the phenomena studied here impact on our natural environment and living systems. We participate in undergraduate programs in chemistry, molecular biology, medicinal chemistry, biology, marine sciences, and pharmacy.


The Research Engineer will be part of Prof. Richard Neutze's research group and work in close collaboration with Dr. Gisela Brändén's research group. Within this group, we use various biochemical and biophysical methods to study the structure, function and dynamics of membrane proteins. In particular, we focus on new structural biological methods where x-ray lights from synchrotrons and XFEL plants help us describe proteins in detail when they work.


Job assignments


The research project involves analyzing time-resolved crystallography data that we have collected in previous experiments. The Research Engineer will write code to analyze structural changes in a time-dependent sequence of difference electron density maps. The Research Engineer will draw figures and present the results from this analysis in publications




To qualify as a Research Engineer, the applicant must have completed a Swedish Master of Science degree or must have a foreign degree corresponding to a Swedish Master of Science degree. For this position, the Research Engineer must have at least two years of experience of working with serial crystallography data and must be fluent in programming for data analysis, especially with MatLab.
