Dear XFEL and Structural Biology Colleagues,

Please note that we have an open Research Scientist position in Berkeley
Lab’s Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging Division https://biosciences.lbl.gov/divisions/mbib/. The successful candidate,
with a strong interest in high-performance computing and an intuitive feel for
experimental data, will work on our two projects 1) the DIALS/cctbx.xfel
project aiming to utilize XFEL crystallographic diffraction and
spectroscopy for increasingly complex studies on metalloenzymes and other
macromolecular complexes, and 2) the Exascale Computing Project,
specifically my Data Analytics for X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) group,
seeking to support high data rate analysis for XFEL experiments, accounting
for advances in light sources and detectors.

The group’s work will include:

  • Photosystem II, discovering the sequence of redox events leading to
    the release of molecular oxygen, using a combination of
    time-resolved crystallography
    and X-ray emission spectroscopy.
    https://doi.org/10.1038/s41586-018-0681-2
  • Examining the electronic environment of metalloenzyme catalytic
    metals, with detection based on anomalous scattering. Data processing will
    engage high-performance computing facilities to analyze experimental data.
