    Opportunity: Computational Graduate Student (#93491) @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- Berkeley, CA (US)
    Submitted by Bill Cannan; posted on Tuesday, August 24, 2021


    Berkeley Lab's Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging Division has an opening for a Graduate Student. The successful candidate will work on a materials science project that will develop chemical restraints on small-molecule structure refinement, tied directly to per-pixel values from sparse X-ray diffraction patterns. The project includes a strong machine-learning component to derive parameters that best fit the chemical structure to the observed data, and it includes participating in the acquisition and processing of X-ray diffraction data from X-ray free-electron sources. This project is a 3 year project.


    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.


    • 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


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


    • This is a part time (20 hours a week), 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.


    Apply directly online at[...]06211 and follow the on-line instructions to complete the application process.
