Postdoctoral position in macromolecular crystallographic computing at NE-CAT, Cornell University
The Northeastern Collaborative Access Team (NE-CAT) at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory is seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the development, dissemination and support of RAPD, a software package developed at NE-CAT for real time analysis of macromolecular crystallographic (MX) data. The initial appointment is for two years with possibility of extension. The starting salary will be $70,000. The primary responsibilities will be to participate in the development of RAPD and to support the dissemination of RAPD to new sites including other MX beamlines and home laboratories. NE-CAT has developed RAPD, which provides indexing, strategy calculation, integration, data analysis, data set merging, and structure solution. We are currently in the process of extending the software and making it available to the MX community.
