I would like to draw your attention to the following job opportunity.
Computer scientist position at Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology
Our research focuses on the structural analysis of macromolecular protein complexes using single-particle cryo-electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography. For the processing of the electron microscopic pictures we develop in our laboratory the image processing software package SPHIRE.
The successful candidate will work in a team of five software developers and develop algorithms, write scripts and software for image processing in single particle cryo-EM as well as cryo electron tomography and maintain the software package SPHIRE. As part of the team she/he will teach the usage of the program in workshops and support users.
The successful candidate has an excellent PhD in computer science, computational biology, physics or related areas. Proficiency in scripting is expected. Experience in deep learning and other machine learning techniques would be advantageous. Previous experience in single particle electron cryo-microscopy or electron tomography is a bonus but not a prerequisite. Strong written and oral communication skills in English are required.
We offer full-time employment in a modern, international work environment. The position is to be filled immediately and initially limited to two years but can be extended to up to 5 years. Remuneration is paid in accordance with the collective agreement of the public service (TVöD Bund), taking account of your qualifications and professional experience. In addition, other social benefits are granted in accordance with the regulations of the public service.
The Max Planck Society (MPG) is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply. The MPG aims to increase the percentage of women on its scientific staff and therefore strongly encourages women to apply.
