Job Description: Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science & Technology in Japan (MEXT) started a five-year program for “Platform for Drug Discovery, Structural Life Science and Information Analysis (tentative)” from FY2012. As headquarters for the program, KEK will pursue development of the integrated technical service platform for protein structure analysis to aid drug design and so on. KEK will provide protein structure analysis services by X-ray crystallography, and also develop beam quality, crystal handling and setup for experiments at beamlines. The successful candidates are expected to play a central role in the management of research projects on protein structure-function analysis in this program. The candidates are expected to commit to several research projects as collaborators, by making efficient use of the platform developed by this program, which includes X-ray crystallography, X-ray solution scattering, protein production, information analysis, and chemical library.
