The European Synchrotron, the ESRF, is an international research centre based in Grenoble, France.
Through its innovative engineering, pioneering scientific vision and a strong commitment from its 700 staff members, the ESRF is recognised as one of the top research facilities worldwide. Its particle accelerator produces intense X-ray beams that are used by thousands of scientists each year for experiments in diverse fields such as biology, medicine, environmental sciences, cultural heritage, materials science, and physics.
Supported by 22 countries, the ESRF is an equal opportunity employer and encourages diversity.
The ESRF Structural Biology Group operates five state of the art Macromolecular crystallography (MX) beamlines, a Solution scattering beamline and a Cryo electron microscopy facility. The beamlines present a high degree of automation using advanced robotics which are facilitated with inhouse developed software (MXCuBE). The latest version, the web application MXCuBE3 (https://github.com/mxcube/) is specifically designed to perform advanced experiments remotely. As part of the EBS Extremely Brilliant Source (EBS, http://ebs.esrf.fr/about-esrf-ebs/), the ESRF is constructing a new beamline dedicated to room temperature time-resolved serial crystallography experiments, the next generation experiments in structural biology.
