Description: The Image Processing group in the Department of Molecular Sociology (Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, Frankfurt am Main, Germany) aims to facilitate in situ structural analysis by developing novel algorithms for cryo electron tomography and subtomogram averaging. Our method development focuses on integrating contextual information provided either directly within the tomogram or by other sources (molecular dynamics, mass spectrometry) into subtomogram averaging routines (for examples, see our latest work on in situ structural analysis of Sars-CoV-2; DOI: 10.1126/science.abd5223).

We seek to recruit a PhD Candidate (f/m/d) in Image Processing.

Applicants should hold a Master degree in computer science, visual computing, applied mathematics, physics, biophysics, or a related field. The ideal candidates will have experience in one or more of the following subject areas: - image processing - computer graphics (especially geometry/topology) - applied mathematics - strong programming skills in some object-oriented language (C++, Python)

Applications should contain a short motivation explaining your interest in and fit to the position, a CV including contact information for at least one reference and transcript of records. Please send applications to by September 30, 2021. Applications received after September 30 will be considered in the case the position will not be filled by then.
