Structural Biology is one of the most important family of techniques at the ESRF, both for academic and industrial users, and this will be further enhanced by the operation of the ID29 beamline for serial crystallography. Due to the constant evolution of X-ray crystallography techniques, including the recent introduction of Cryo-EM, and the demand of the user community for automated data processing algorithms as well as efficient and friendly pipelines, these must be constantly upgraded to guarantee a state-of-the-art user experience and scientific output.
You will drive software developments for structural biology at ESRF, notably in the field of synchrotron serial crystallography (SSX). An objective will be to implement and automate data analysis algorithms to merge ‘big’ SSX datasests for macromolecular structure determination. You will also explore new avenues in analysis using novel algorithms e.g. using machine learning approaches.
You will also participate and lead large collaborative projects (e.g. ISpyB, cloud-based data analysis) for state-of-the-art data processing pipelines mainly in the field of structural biology.
The work will take place in the Algorithms & scientific Data Analysis group, in close collaboration with the structural biology group beamlines. Further information about the post can be obtained from Vincent Favre-Nicolin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
