Hi everyone,

I currently have an opening in my group for a postdoctoral fellow to 
work on cryo-EM methods development.

My lab has recently made exciting progress in cryo-EM methods 
development.  Manifesting in the recently released software package, 
cryoSPARC (http://cryosparc.com), our work has significantly reduced the 
computational cost of refinements and made them more robust by removing 
the need for initial models (Nat Meth 2017).  Building on this recent 
progress, a successful postdoc would develop new methods for cryo-EM. 
The specific topic would depend on the candidate's strengths and 
interests but possible options include: structural flexibility, cryo-ET, 
validation and automation.  This work would be done in collaboration 
with the Rubinstein Lab at The Hospital for Sick Children located nearby.

Qualified applicants must have a PhD in a related subject area, 
programming skills, a solid mathematical background (including 
multivariate calculus, linear algebra and probability) and knowledge of 
computational methods for cryo-EM.  Experience with methods in computer 
vision, machine learning, etc are a bonus but not required.

Interested candidates should apply immediately by emailing their CVs, a 
brief statement of research interests and the contact information of two 
or three academic references to: mab at eecs.yorku.ca  Applications should 
be received by February 22nd, 2017 to be fully considered.
