Computer Systems Engineer I/II
Job PB/011299/CJO
CSE I $3605-$5717/Mo.
CSE II $4326-$7210/Mo.

Computational Crystallography Initiative,
Physical Biosciences Division,
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 
Berkeley, California.

NOTE: One vacancy exists. Classification will depend upon the
applicant's level of skills, knowledge, and abilities. This is a
one-year term appointment with the possibility of renewal contingent
upon continued funding. 

DUTIES: Essential -- Under the general direction of the principal
investigator of the Computational Crystallography Initiative, assist
with the development and implementation of a high-level crystallographic
computing language and numerical algorithms for a scientific
application. The overall objectives of the Computational Crystallography
Initiative include the design of a high-level crystallographic computing
language, implemented as an "interpreter" using common computer language
creation tools. The resulting computational architecture will create a
highly flexible and open environment in which to execute new algorithms
for the automation of the multi-wavelength anomalous diffraction method,
model building, structure refinement, and eventually all major aspects
of X-ray crystallography.
Essential for the CSE II -- In addition to the CSE I duties, the CSE II
will be expected to provide technical guidance to other group members
and to engage in independent research.

QUALIFICATIONS: Essential -- Candidates will be considered from across
all levels of computer systems engineering experience. Most important is
extensive experience with C/C++ and Javascript, PERL or a similar
scripting language. Familiarity with one or more of the following is
desirable: current language translation tools (e.g., PCCTS/ANTLR),
source code revision systems, API design, web-based interfaces. Marginal
-- Experience in development and implementation of numerical algorithms
for scientific applications. Familiarity with UNIX or Windows system
Essential for the CSE II -- In addition to the qualifications for the
CSE I, the CSE II will have a proven ability to assume lead roles in
activities and to grasp complex problems and independently develop
solutions and will possess an in-depth background in software

POSTING DATE: October 21, 1999.
CLOSING DATE: Open until filled.
