We are looking for a talented and highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to join our multidisciplinary team at UC San Diego.

Fast and accurate search of protein structures by 3-dimensional shape in large databases continues to be a challenge in Bioinformatics. This has been exacerbated by the recent appearance of accurate methods to predict protein structures from sequence. Those methods, when applied to existing protein sequence databases, produce numbers of structures many orders of magnitude larger than the existing experimental knowledge in the PDB database. The incumbent will research novel methods to compare macromolecular structures that are scalable to the deluge of structural data and that work at any level: domains, chains or assemblies. The ultimate aim of this project is to improve the findability of data in the PDB by building the next generation search engine for structural molecular biology.

This position is a unique opportunity to engage in leading edge research, development, and outreach activities of the RCSB PDB with worldwide impact. For more, visit our Careers page.

RCSB PDB also has an open position for a Backend Software Engineer located at Rutgers in Piscataway, NJ.

Going to ISMB? Let us know and RCSB PDB members can discuss these positions with you at the meeting.
