I have a vacancy for Team Leader for Infrastructure and Methods 
Development in my group that is still being advertised;  this is the 
Protein Crystallography group of the Structural Genomics Consortium, 

For details, please see: http://www.sgc.ox.ac.uk/jobs/07079.html, and 
feel free to contact me if curious.

The remit of the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) is to solve human
proteins of medical relevance and place them in the public domain
without restrictions;  it is funded by a consortium of public and
industrial funders, and has independently operating sites in Oxford and
Toronto Universities and Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm).  The Oxford
site solved nearly 200 such structures in its first three years, and has
now entered Phase II, with 4 years of funding till June 2011;  it now
has an increased emphasis on chemical biology and membrane proteins.

The Protein Crystallography group collaborates tightly with the 5 other
groups to get their purified proteins crystallized and solved -- five
per month, to be precise.  Equally importantly, with all the robotics and
toys you'd care for, and access not only to lots of real-life samples 
but also to 3 years' worth of structured data accumulated during Phase I,
we're ideally positioned for development and testing of crystallographic
methods, which will be the major scientific thrust of the group in this

Enthusiastic crystallographers, especially those that really enjoy the
nuts and bolts of the technique and mucking around with tricks and toys,
both crystallization and algorithms, are encouraged to apply.
