  • Congratulations to Edward Snell on being elected as American Crystallographic Association Fellow! The American Crystallographic Association – the Structural Science Society – established the Fellows distinction to recognize a high level of excellence in scientific research, teaching, and professional duties, but also service, leadership, and perso...
  • John Spence had a remarkable scientific impact over an illustrious career spanning nearly 50 years before he passed away in June, 2021. His friends and colleagues are honoring his memory with an international symposium based around the topics of imaging, diffraction and crystallography.
  • PostDoctoral Associate in Bioinformatics, Structural Biology (Rutgers) RCSB Protein Data Bank is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with domain experience in structural biology, bioinformatics or related fields. The successful candidate will work on research projects that drive modernized deposition/validation/biocuration tools and...
  • The splendid computational success of AlphaFold and RoseTTAFold in solving the 60-year-old problem of protein folding raises an obvious question: what new avenues should structural biology explore? We propose a strong pivot toward the goal of reading mechanism and function directly from the amino acid sequence.
  • Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov) delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation's future. Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 37 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research. The Lab is primarily supported by the U.S. D...
  • The structural dynamics of a molecule are determined by the underlying potential energy landscape. Conical intersections are funnels connecting otherwise separate potential energy surfaces. Posited almost a century ago, conical intersections remain the subject of intense scientific interest.
  • Research. Enzyme function is potentially linked to the entire protein conformational space sampled by enzyme and enzyme-intermediate complexes during catalysis. Importantly, this holds for lowly populated conformational sub-spaces of higher free energy, which can differ distinctly from the lowest free energy conformational sub-space typically captu...
  • Search for Assistant Professor in Biophysics at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), a research intensive premier public urban university committed to academic excellence, is located in the commercial and industrial hub of Wisconsin.
  • The XFEL Hub at Diamond Light Source is seeking a Beamline Scientist for a full time, permanent position. This person will help with the activities of the Hub and its mission to enable and promote dynamic structural biology at Diamond and at X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs).
  • Using the X-ray laser European XFEL an international team of researchers has successfully filmed a reaction step that is important for the development of antibiotic resistance.
