The Scripps Research Institute (La Jolla, California) and its Computational Structural Biology Group in the Department of Molecular Biology http://www.scripps.edu/wriggers are seeking highly qualified Postdoctoral Research Associates to develop and apply new multi-resolution modeling techniques for the determination of 3D structures of proteins and macromolecular assemblies. We are an innovative, dynamic team of young scientists and collaborate with world leaders in Electron Microscopy. Highly qualified applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree in physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, or a related quantitative discipline. Research experience in computational biophysics, structural bioinformatics, image-processing, neural networks, or visualization is an asset. We expect a strong programming background, organizational skills, and the willingness to communicate with our experimental collaborators. The successful candidates may choose among the following research topics:

  • neural network-based shape characterization and query;
  • shape-based docking of multi-resolution biomolecular data;
  • flexible docking with force-field methods (molecular dynamics and normal mode analysis);
  • spline-based warping (morphing) of 3D structural data;
  • interactive visualization (computer graphics) of atomic and low-resolution data.

The developed algorithms will be applied in challenging collaborations involving structures of virus capsids, RNA polymerase, cytoskeletal filaments and the ribosome. Initial appointments are for one year, but are extendable to the full time frame of the projects (up to 5 years). We offer a competitive salary and benefits. Ideally, candidates should be able to start by April, 2001, although highly qualified candidates who seek a later start date should not hesitate to apply.
