Facility Manager:

Physical Biochemistry and Macromolecular Crystallography Facilities
Indiana University is seeking a Ph. D. level facility manager to operate state-of-the-art the Crystallization Automation Facility (CAF) and the Physical Biochemistry Instrumentation Facility (PBIF). The management of these facilities includes extensive interaction and training with users over several biophysical methods and in X-ray crystallographic tasks from crystal screening to structure determination. Candidates are expected to have training in biophysics and macromolecular crystallography with clear evidence of X-ray structure determination as well as either practical or theoretical understanding of several biophysical techniques. Techniques available to users of the PBIF include - but are not limited to - analytical ultracentrifugation, isothermal titration calorimetry, microscale thermophoresis, multi-angle light scattering, stopped-flow kinetics, fluorescence and fluorescence anisotropy. Preference will be given to applicants with proficiency in at least a subset of these biophysical techniques. A full description of the experimental techniques facilitated by resources in the PBIF and CAF can be viewed online at and, respectively.
