Research Scientist / Postdoctoral Fellow Positions

The Computational structural biology group (http://liulab.csrc.ac.cn) at the Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) calls for applications to fill research scientist and postdoctoral positions in the following research areas,

1. Computational method and software development in X-ray sciences. Ongoing activities and research collaborations include,

Developing open source programs for X-ray scattering data analysis and model reconstruction/refinement

Method and software development for High-resolution structure determination using data collected at X-ray free electron lasers, including single particle scattering and serial crystallography data analysis

Integration of molecular dynamics simulation and time-resolved X-ray scattering/diffraction data to reconstruct conformational transformations for large molecules.

2. Computational modeling and simulation of protein systems. Ongoing projects include

Simulation of GPCR proteins, prediction of ligand binding and stability

Investigation of nucleosome dynamics and packing, and the effect of post-translation modification to the histone tails

3. Image analysis method and software development

Main task is to do image classification, 3D object reconstruction from 2D images, 3D shape retrieval etc.

Successful applicants are expected to spend a few months each year at Arizona State University, department of Physics in our collaboration with the NSF Science and Technology Center for applications of X-ray lasers to Biology.

There are also opportunities for joint appointment with Universities in Hong Kong for outstanding applicants.

Qualifications: Ideal candidates should have strong interest in interdisciplinary research and be highly motivated to interact with experimental groups. He/she should possess a PhD degree in physics, biology, or a related theoretical discipline, with a solid background in quantitative modeling and simulations. Independent problem-solving and creative thinking skills are highly valued.

The Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) (http://www.csrc.ac.cn) is an interdisciplinary research center open to national and international collaborative initiatives, equipped with advanced HPC machines.

CSRC offers competitive salaries and benefits, and excellent research environments. Successful applicants will work closely with current lab members. CSRC encourages and sponsors young researchers to apply for his/her own research funding if necessary. Interested applicants please send a full CV, a brief summary or statement of research, and two to three reference letters by email to Dr. Haiguang Liu at hgliu%csrc.ac.cn.
