Post-doctoral Positions in X-ray Crystallography and Computational
Two post-doctoral positions are available immediately, one in
experimental and one in computational aspects of protein
Applicants for the first position should be experienced in practical
aspects of protein crystallography and structure determination.
Experience in cloning and protein expression is also desirable.

projects will diversify to include work on self-assembling proteins and
other proteins with repetitive or otherwise unusual architectures.
The second position is in the area of computational crystallography,
but may also include other aspects of computational biology such as
genomics or protein structure analysis. The successful applicant
should have a strong background in scientific programming, an
understanding of numerical methods, and an ability to solve complex
problem. Familiarity with crystallographic and biological structure
problems is desirable, but applicants with backgrounds in dynamics
simulations or other areas of computational physics are encouraged to
The UCLA macromolecular structure groups are well-equipped for
crystallography and computational analysis. Shared facilities include
three RU-200 rotating anode generators, two RAXIS imaging plates and
one CCD detector, and a network of over 20 DEC Alpha and other
