The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL) is seeking a Postdoctoral
Research Associate to work on computational projects for high-throughput structure
determination by macromolecular X-ray crystallography. Responsibilities include the
development of algorithms for the automated interpretation of electron density maps in
collaboration with the Computer Science department at Stanford University, and with the
Computational Crystallography Initiative (CCI) at Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory. The successful candidate will interact with X-ray crystallographers working
at SSRL, the Joint Center for Structural Genomics and the Berkeley Structural Genomics
Center to assist them in the rapid determination of protein structures using synchrotron
Requirements for this position include knowledge of X-ray crystallography, and
experience in computational methods for the analysis of complex data. Extensive
experience in the use of programming languages such as C++, C or Fortran is essential.
Knowledge of a scripting language such as Python or Perl is an advantage. A Ph.D. in
computational crystallography, biology, chemistry, physics, computer science,
mathematics or engineering is required. The appointment is for a fixed term of two years
with the possibility of extension for one additional year.
Please submit one copy of your resume and have three letters of reference sent to Prof.
Axel T. Brunger (axel.brunger at stanford.edu) or FAX (650-745-1463).
