Dear All there is an exciting opportunity to lead the Cryo X-ray full field transmission microscope at Diamond (beamline B24).

This position is to lead the full-field cryo X-ray transmission microscope (beamline B24) at Diamond Light Source. B24 is a multi-million pound facility that provides both high resolution tomography and super resolution fluorescence microscopy facilities for biological samples. The latter is a joint venture with Micron at the University of Oxford. The beamline is ramping up to full operations in 2018 with an active user community already in place. B24 and the Electron Bio-Imaging Centre (eBIC) makeup the recently established Biological Cryo-Imaging group at Diamond which together with the capabilities of the physical science Imaging and Microscopy group provide a platform for using electrons, X-rays and visible light to image an array of samples across a diverse range of length and time scales.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally competitive research programme which exploits the capabilities of B24 and Diamond in general. To facilitate this, funding for a post-doctoral research fellow (subject to a suitable case being made) is available with the post as well as the opportunity for PhD studentships within Diamond’s PhD fellowship programme. You will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories for structural and cellular biology embedded at the beamline and within the Research Complex at Harwell to pursue your research. Support for external grant funding through national and international funding agencies to take full advantage of the stimulating and exciting international research environment at Diamond is also provided.As the leader of the B24 team of scientists and engineers you will also contribute to leading development of new software and instrumentation for biological imaging as well as provision of user support by assisting visiting scientists to carry out a wide range of experiments.

Suitable candidates will have expertise and a strong track-record in X-ray microscopy techniques and/or correlative imaging with preferable a strong background in imaging of biological cells.
