*Position*:Scientific Software Developer / Postdoctoral Researcher for imagingprocessing and structure biology
*About us*:
The Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) is aninterdisciplinary research institute, promoting researches on basicsciences.

The base salary will be starting from 12,000 RMB/month, depending on theexperiences. Outstanding postdoctoral fellow will be nominated for the CSRCfellowships which provide extra benefits once selected. Housing will beprovided for postdoctoral researchers at low cost (around 1000RMB/month).

*The projects*:
*Position-1: *
Developing software and algorithm to analyze experimental data, with afocus on the research of biological systems.

This is under a general framework that integrates experimental informationwith the theoretical modeling and simulations. The specific tasks are- Develop programs to process raw data, reduce images to meaningfulprofiles;- Apply and Develop algorithms to convert profiles to model information,such as 3D structures, distance constraints;- Based on the models, propose hypothesis about the mechanism for furtherexperimental validations.
The data sources include but not limited to- X-ray scattering/diffraction data, especially the experimental data fromX-ray free electron lasers;- CryoEM data;- Single molecule Fluorescence data, such as particle tracking, FRET.
These projects will be carried out in close collaborations with researchgroups in the top research institutes (Stanford, Arizona State University,DESY) and short visits and exchange to the collaboration groups arestrongly encouraged and supported.
Utilizing advanced X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) for crystallographywith Laue diffraction method. Measuring full diffraction intensity ischallenging from the ultrabright X-ray lasers, and Laue method provides anopportunity to improve the data quality. Collaborating with Prof. Quan Haofrom Hong Kong University, we aim to develop computational simulation anddata analysis framework to *extend Laue diffraction method to XFEL basedstructure studies*. Prof. Quan Hao is a major developer of Laue method forconventional crystallography and will lead the research project.

This position can be placed in our site in ShenZhen, and the selectedcandidates are eligible for the benefit and stipends from Shenzhengovernment on top of base salaries from CSRC.

*About you*:
- Background in physical sciences, such as physics, chemistry, computersciences, and applied mathematics, or computational biology- Knowledge about programming languages, C/C++, Python- Familiar with Matlab or other similar scientific software- Good English in both written and spoken
- Interest in science and strong desires for independent research
