Thursday, December 03, 2020 Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Our group develops new algorithms for cryo-EM structure determination and implements these in the popular image processing software RELION. In this context, we are seeking a PhD student who would be keen to contribute to algorithm design and implementation. Possible topics include the application of deep-learning techniques from artificial intelligence to several tasks in the cryo-EM singe particle analysis pipeline, such as micrograph and particle selection and the automation of complicated classification procedures; the development of new approaches to model flexible molecules; and better procedures for amyloid structure determination. In addition, we are currently working on procedures for smart data acquisition, with automated feedback from on-the-fly image processing. The ideal candidate has a keen interest in working with structural biologists and has a background in numerical data processing and computer programming, possibly including deep-learning approaches.
