INSTRUCT is the European Strategic Initiative in the area of Structural Biology. It is organized around 5 Core Centers and a similar number of Centers. During 2009 the Biocomputing Unit (BCU) of the CNB-CSIC won the international competition to become the “INSTRUCT Center for Image Processing in Biology”, starting its operation during 2010 and providing the context for the current opening of positions. The BCU is well known in the area of three-dimensional electron microscopy, with over 150 publications in the area, including public domains suites of programs and very popular image processing methods
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc with experience in image processing in a wide sense. We expect this candidate to go deeper into the specifics of the image processing tasks in Three-dimensional Electron Microscopy, developing new ideas to handle some of the most critical issues in this area. Several topics are possible, from works on the so called Single Particle Approach to woks in Tomography, depending on the candidate.
