To the phenixbb community,

The Structural Biology Initiative ( https://asrc.gc.cuny.edu/structbio ) of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center has an available position for an X-ray Crystallography Facility Manager (Research Assistant Professor) starting immediately.

The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center is a new cutting-edge research institution located in New York City, bringing together five Initiatives whose research areas span many length scales: Structural Biology, Nanoscience, Photonics, Neuroscience, and Environmental Science. The Structural Biology Initiative (SBI) features seven tenure-track and research faculty members, pursuing research problems across biological and chemical topics using techniques as diverse as X-ray diffraction, cryo-EM, NMR, solution biophysics, and advanced microscopy. The SBI also hosts state-of-the-art core facilities in three different areas: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, mass spectrometry (MS), and X-ray crystallography.

The Structural Biology Initiative seeks a Facility Manager/Research Assistant Professor for the X-ray Macromolecular Crystallography Facility, which is already equipped with a Rigaku Alchemist DT liquid handler, two ARI Gryphon crystallization robots, and two Rigaku Minstrel DT crystal imagers at room temperature and 4°C. The selected candidate will be responsible not only for directing day-to-day operations of the facility in concert with users from the ASRC and externally, but also for developing an independent research program that leverages emerging technologies in X-ray crystallography.

The ASRC is located in upper Manhattan, immediately adjacent to the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC), a consortium of CUNY and eight other New York academic institutions with world-class cryo-EM, NMR, and X-ray facilities on-site and at Brookhaven National Laboratory. BNL, located just 70 miles from the ASRC, includes a newly constructed synchrotron, National Synchrotron Light Source II, which opened in 2015. NSLS-II is now the brightest synchrotron light source in the United State, offering X-rays that are 10,000x brighter than the original NSLS. The ASRC Structural Biology Initiative has access to several cutting-edge microfocus beamlines equipped for automated crystal handling and data collection at NSLS-II, including the NYX beamline via CUNY’s membership in NYSBC and the AMX and FMX beamlines via proposals.

Review of applications will begin on October 16.
