Email Address: Beata.Turonova@biophys.mpg.de

Closing Date: September 30, 2021

Description: The Departments of Molecular Sociology (Beck and Turonova Labs) and Theoretical Biophysics (Hummer Lab) study the structure and function of macromolecular assemblies with a focus on in situ structural biology and molecular modeling (for examples, see our latest work on in situ structural analysis of Sars-CoV-2; DOI: 10.1126/science.abd5223). Funded by a recent award from the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation, we seek to recruit a postdoc (f/m/d) in image processing for a project in Visual Proteomics that aims to detect macromolecular species in cryo electron tomograms.

Applicants should hold a PhD degree in computer science, image processing, computer vision, visual computing, applied mathematics, physics, or related field. The ideal candidates will have experience in one or more of the following subject areas: - image processing - computer graphics - pattern recognition - computational geometry - computer vision - strong programming skills in OOP (C++, Python)

Applications should contain a cover letter explaining your interest in and fit to the position, a CV including contact information for at least two references and a list of your publications. Please send applications to Beata.Turonova@biophys.mpg.de by September 30, 2021.
