JOB DESCRIPTION

Postdoc

The Biozentrum of the University of Basel is one of the leading institutes worldwide for molecular and biomedical basic research and teaching. It is home to more than 30 research groups with scientists from over 40 countries. Research at the Biozentrum focuses on the areas of Cell Growth & Development, Infection Biology, Neurobiology, Structural Biology & Biophysics and Computational & Systems Biology. With its more than 500 employees, the Biozentrum is the largest department at the University of Basel's Faculty of Science.

A position is available to work in the scientific development and technical maintenance of the Dynamo package for tomography and subtomogram averaging ( www.dynamo-em.org ).

Your position

  • You will work on independent research projects aiming at the development of new segmentation techniques, applying concepts from deep learning and geneal artificial intelligence to the automated analysis of large sets of cryo electron tomography data.
  • You will devise, implement and test new methods for extracting high resolution structures from cryoET data sets, integrating new approaches for classification and numerical compensation of imaging aberrations.
  • You will contribute to the maintenance and visibility of the Dynamo package, presenting it in international conferences and user training workshops.


Your profile
We welcome applications from numerical scientists or structural biologists with solid skills in Matlab, C++, CUDA and/or Python. Experience in Computer Vision and Deep Learning is highly desirable. A background in Image Processing for CryoEM is a plus. The position will involve constant interaction with end-users of our package; a flair for creating well documented tools ready for the use by a large community of users is thus of the essence.

We offer you
This position is funded for four years and immediately available. We offer an exciting and stimulation work environment with granting access to outstanding resources for data analysis and acquisition.
