  1. ========================================================================
    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    Software Development for Single Particle Image Construction
    with the Computational Crystallography Initiative

    Computational Scientist
    Requisition Number: 016273
    Division: Physical Biosciences
    Date Opened: 07/24/2003

    DUTIES: Essential -- Working as a member of a group at the fore-front of
    high-throughput structural biology software development, this computational
    scientist appointment has primary responsibility for the development of a
    new software package called SPARX for high-throughput electron microscopy
    single particle image reconstruction. This will entail developing features
    in the PHENIX graphical user environment to enhance support for single
    particle image reconstruction algorithms written in C++, and implementing
    job-level parallelism combined with task management within the PHENIX
    framework. The work will be carried out as part of a collaboration with
    leaders in the field of single particle image reconstruction,
    high-performance computing, and applied mathematics. There will be a close
    interaction with researchers at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston to
    incorporate the algorithms from the EMAN package into the PHENIX
    environment. The resulting SPARX software will be distributed to the
    electron microscopy community.

    QUALIFICATIONS: Essential -- Demonstrated high-level skills, knowledge and
    work experience in computational structural biology, chemistry, physics,
    mathematics, or computer science, in particular the development of code for
    scientific applications. Must have high analytical skill and programming
    skill (language unspecified but prefer C++, or similar object oriented
    language), familiarity with tools such as Python and CVS. Experience in the
    development of graphical user interfaces and/or the practical implementation
    of parallel programming paradigms. Ability to creatively work with problems
    in software design and implementation. Effective interpersonal, verbal and
    written communication skills with the ability to accomplish goals as a team
    member working collaboratively with programmers, engineers, post-docs,
    graduate students, and undergraduates from multiple backgrounds. Must have
    the ability to handle multiple projects and tasks in parallel and meet
    programmatic milestones and project timelines.

    To apply: visit and search for the keyword PHENIX or the
    job number 016273. Please see for details
    of how to apply.
