We are part of a consortium which has recently been funded by the Wellcome Trust to develop and disseminate validation tools to assess the quality of cryoEM reconstructions and fitted models. The other members of the project are STFC, Francis Crick Institute, Birkbeck College, University of Manchester, and the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.
We are looking for a scientific programmer tol:
• Expand and improve the repertoire of stand-alone validation servers for the EM community offered by EMBL-EBI, such as the Fourier Shell Correlation server (emdb-empiar.org/fsc) and the Tilt Pair Validation server (emdb-empiar.org/tiltpair)
• Expand the visual analysis web service (e.g., emdb-empiar.org/emd-984/analysis) that provides validation information on EMDB entries with the components to be developed by project partners
• Develop reporting formats for depositing validation information, e.g., from local resolution methods such as ResMap.
Qualifications and Experience
Applicants should have a Masters/PhD degree in a structural biology related field (e.g., 3DEM, X-ray crystallography, and NMR) and at least one years experience in software development (preferably related to a structural biology project). Applicants should have a good understanding of the image formation and image processing concepts in at least one structural field and be prepared to learn relevant concepts for the project.
Excellent written and oral communication skills, fluency in English, ability to work in a team, and attention to detail are required. The position may require occasional travel, mainly in the UK.
