*3 years Fixed Term*
*MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK*
We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist to join the group of Dr Sjors Scheres to work on the development of algorithms aimed at improving protein structure determination by reconstruction of cryo-electron microscopy images. Specifically, to investigate the use of modern machine-learning approaches for the purpose of modelling continuous molecular motions.
You will become part of our multi-disciplinary team, where image processing developments are performed alongside experimental cryo-EM, and you will benefit from interactions with the wider scientific community at the MRC-LMB. This post is one of four interleaved positions connecting the Alan Turing Institute, STFC/CCPEM and the Maths Department at the University of Cambridge, which will provide further opportunities for interactions. You are highly motivated, have a PhD in a relevant subject or due to complete within 6 months, and you have a demonstrated affinity for scientific algorithm development. Experience of modern machine-learning methods and/or experience of algorithm development for image reconstruction, perhaps even in cryo-EM, are an important advantage.
The successful applicant will be awarded a 3-year Career Development Fellowship / Postdoctoral Training Scheme position. This is a training and development position for a post-doctoral scientist who has recently completed their doctoral studies, is moving into a new research discipline or has limited experience of key transferable skills. The MRC LMB has excellent scientific core facilities and training opportunities.
