The project aims to develop new computational algorithms for the visualization of small molecule compounds bound to target proteins using innovative approaches with solution X-ray scattering. The successful completion of the project will impact many fields from drug discovery and development to basic biological processes. An excellent opportunity for creative, out-of-the-box thinkers who are self-motivated. Candidates will have the opportunity and support to present their research findings at national and international conferences and in high-impact scientific journals. The positions are for an initial term of two years with possibilities for renewal based on performance and available funding. Compensation will be commensurate with experience.
