Dear colleagues,

I would like to bring your attention to the following vacancy at the University of Auckland:

Professor/Associate Professor in Structural Biology 

The School of Biological Sciences invites applications for a Professor/Associate Professor in Structural Biology. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in either macromolecular crystallography and/or any other approach to molecular structural biology, will have the demonstrated ability to combine this expertise with biophysical, biochemical or cellular techniques to solve contemporary biological problems of both fundamental and applied nature, and will have a strong track record of obtaining research funding in a competitive environment. The successful candidate will actively contribute to teaching and graduate supervision while maintaining their own research portfolio. If appointed at the Professorial level, the successful candidate would also be expected to provide leadership within the strongly collegial Structural Biology Research section, which currently includes seven research groups and around 40 staff and students. Existing facilities available include state-of-the-art X-ray data collection facilities (Rigaku MicroMax-007 HF with mar345dtb detectors) and crystallization robotics, a Tecnai 12 cryo-TEM with CCD camera and a Bruker 600MHz NMR instrument with cryoprobe. A new Tecnai F20, a 200 kV Field Emission Gun TEM equipped with an energy filter, will be installed in 2011. The Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne is readily accessible from Auckland. 

The School of Biological Sciences has close to 200 staff and over 150 graduate students. It is located on the University's City campus in a beautiful park setting and enjoys wide views over Auckland's picturesque Waitemata Harbour. The Faculty of Science is the leading science faculty in New Zealand and one of the largest in Australasia. Auckland is rated as one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Closing date: The closing date for applications for this position is 15 January 2012.

Full details can be found at the University website (Job ID 13683)

Thank you,


Richard Kingston, PhD.
