Discover your future at Berkeley Lab!

Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Biophysics & Integrated Bioimaging Division (
https://biosciences.lbl.gov/divisions/mbib/) has an opening for an
Exascale Computational
Crystallographer Project Scientist. The Project Scientist, with a strong
interest in high-performance computing and an intuitive feel for
experimental data, will be affiliated with the Exascale Computing Project,
specifically Nick Sauter’s Data Analytics for X-ray Free Electron
Lasers (XFELs)
group focusing on scientific software for X-ray crystallography. The next
decade of structural biology at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) will
include groundbreaking advances in time-domain crystallography, performed
at room temperature to preserve biologically relevant dynamic mechanisms.
Considering the anticipated scale of these datasets, we have an ambitious
collaboration between SLAC, LANL, and LBNL to utilize national
supercomputer facilities for near real-time analysis, in close
collaboration with scientists at NERSC (also located in Berkeley).

The group’s projects will include:

• Photosystem II, discovering the sequence of redox events leading to the
release of molecular oxygen, using a combination of time-resolved

crystallography and X-ray emission spectroscopy.

• Examining the electronic environment of metalloenzyme catalytic metals,
with detection based on anomalous scattering. The Project Scientist will be
positioned to launch into high-performance computing careers at a light
source or other experimental facilities.
