DOE funded postdoc position for the study of photosynthesis proteins and enzymes using terahertz light. We are seeking a highly independent and skilled researcher to join our effort to establish THz techniques that characterize protein structural dynamics. The position involves instrumentation development, sample preparation and characterization. Duties will include proposal and publication writing, mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students and management of outreach in close consultation with principal investigator.

BioXFEL was well represented at the LCLS/SSRL Users' Meeting with Henry Chapman giving a plenary talk on Serial Femtosecond Crystallography: Past, Present, and Future featuring snippets from data as recent as 24 hours before the talk. David Bushnell, moderated a session that included the LCLS young investigator award and Linda Horton, Director of the Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences Materials Science and Engineering Division. A meeting of the joint LCLS and SSRL Users Executive Committee took place with Linda Horton, Petra Fromme, David Bushnell and Edward Snell present.

A team of BioXFEL ASU scientists led by Professor and STC Member Alexandra Ros in the School of Molecular Sciences and the Biodesign Center for Applied Structural Discovery, has been just the second user group to conduct experiments at the brand new European X-ray free electron laser facility (EuXFEL) in Hamburg, Germany. This 1.5-billion-dollar facility is the third, and by far the most powerful, X-ray laser in the world. After ten years of construction, it opened for first experiments just a month ago.
