Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at Beijing CSRC

PI: Dr. Haiguang Liu, Email: hgliu AT

Project Title:

Image analysis and 3D model reconstruction from XFEL scattering data

Project Description:

X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) offers ultrabright X-ray pulses to generate single particle scattering data at random orientations. In order to assemble 2D scattering data to 3D Fourier space, correct orientations have to be recovered before data merging. On the other hand, biological samples have intrinsic flexibility, resulting the co-existence of multiple conformations. The entangled problem of conformation heterogeneity and orientation recovery must be resolved using computational approach. The goal for this project includes:

  1. Scattering image selection and classifications;

  2. Orientation recovery with presence of conformational heterogeneity;

  3. 3D data assembly and model reconstruction.

The project is in close collaborations with applied mathematicians in the imaging analysis research (Prof. Hongkai Zhao and Prof. Xuecheng Tai). The applicants are expected to be self-motivated, passionate about scientific research, familiar with programming and algorithms in image processing.

We have two positions for this project and also have positions in related projects:

  1. Software development for Data analysis in XFEL scattering and diffraction

  2. Algorithm development for model refinement (X-ray laser and Cryo-EM data)

  3. Molecular Dynamics Simulations for G-protein Coupled Receptor systems

You are welcome to bring in interesting projects that can be aligned with current on-going research directions.
