Dear Colleagues,

We have been awarded a Partnership grant by the MRC to provide computational support for UK scientists using electron cryo-microscopy for structural biology. One of the major aims is to create a Collaborative Computational Project, CCP-EM, by analogy with similar successful projects in macromolecular crystallography (CCP4) and biological nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (CCPN). We seek two excellent and motivated computational scientists to support the Partnership grant and the CCP-EM project. These posts will have a wide variety of responsibilities, including writing community code, improving the useability of existing code, providing training, and supporting individual scientists. The first post will focus on technical aspects, building community tools and improving the programs available. The second post will focus more on the scientific requirements of the community. The posts are located at the Research Complex at Harwell, alongside the core group of CCP4, but the postholders will be expected to travel throughout the UK and interact with international groups to support the collaboration.

Applications must be made through the RCUK Shared Services recruitment portal https://ext.ssc.rcuk.ac.uk/ using the references IRC50385 and IRC50666. Informal enquiries may be made to Martyn Winn (martyn.winn at stfc.ac.uk).

Best wishes,
Martyn Winn, Richard Henderson, Alan Roseman, Peter Rosenthal, Helen Saibil and Ardan Patwardhan
