94205 Requisition #

Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging Division has an opening for a Graduate Student. This is a computational materials science project in a multidisciplinary team with opportunities to work on X-ray crystallography, machine learning, and chemical structures of hybrid materials.  The student will participate in data collection at X-ray free electron laser facilities, analyze data, and develop new methods of structural refinement.  

Note that a degree in a Bachelor’s degree related field is required, but extensive training will be provided.  As it is a computational position, the student will be well served to be familiar with current scientific programing practices and be interested in or have studied modern machine learning approaches.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Implement chemical refinement using restraints coupled directly to pixel values from diffraction patterns.
  • Assist in data collection and processing at X-ray free electron sources.
  • Maintain a detailed record of work performed.
  • Assist with documenting and managing code developed using standard source control methods.
  • Participate in group meetings and seminars.
  • Prepare research presentations and publications.

 

What is Required:

  • Registered full-time graduate student.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science (preferably Artificial Intelligence), or related areas preferred, or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Strong analytical, verbal, and written skills.

 

Desired Qualifications:

  • Good computer skills.
  • Familiarity with Python and C++ programming.

Notes:

  • This is a part time, up to 3 year, graduate student assistant appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
  • Salary will be predetermined based on student step rates.
  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values at Berkeley Lab. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Successful candidates for our faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion.
  • Work will be primarily performed at: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
