I have 2 positions open at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla in my
laboratory in the Molecular Biology Department in molecular graphics/protein crystallography.
Research Programmer. Will work as the Scripps half of XtalView development
and distribution in collaboration with Lynn Ten Eyck at the Center for
Chemistry and Macromolecular Science (CCMS) located at the San Diego
Supercomputer Center. The successful applicant will add new
features, maintain and port XtalView. Knowledge of C, basic debugging
and OpenGL are required. About 1/4 of the time you will act as the second line
of support for XtalView - CCMS will handle user support of most questions
and will pass ones that require knowledge of the code on to you. Starting
salary for this position is negotiable with a minimum of $30,000.
Research Assistant. Work on porting Xfit, the crystallographic density fitting
program in XtalView to the Virtual Reality WorkBench in collaboration with
The Institute of System Science (ISS) in Singapore. The ISS can provide
programming support so the applicant will be responsible for directing the
overall direction of the project and working on developing better methods
for electron density fitting using the workbench. If you've ever thought there
must be a better way to fit - now is your chance to make a real difference!
The applicant will spend up to 3 months in Singapore with housing provided
and the rest of the time will live in La Jolla. A high-speed link between ISS
and Scripps will be instituted to support this project. Base salary is $23,000
+ years of experience.
The Scripps Research Institute is one of the leading research institutes
located in beautiful La Jolla by the ocean. The weather is always nice
and the recreational opportunities are numerous.
