1 year contract at UCM in structural biology with a prime emphasis in cryo-EM and machine learning (good oportunity for the Master Thesis – TFM)

I have an excellent opportunity for a graduate or master student in my lab at the Faculty of Physics in the UCM. The work will be about methods development in structural biology with a prime emphasis in cryo-EM and machine learning. I think it could be a perfect opportunity for someone willing to do a master thesis (especially in the master of ‘nuevas tecnologías electrónicas y fotónicas https://www.ucm.es/master-electronicayfotonica or the master of física biomédica https://www.ucm.es/masterfisicabiomedica/fisica-biomedica) supervised by me and at the same time gain experience in cryo-EM, image processing and deep learning. However, someone currently doing the master could be considered as well.

I think it is a perfect opportunity for someone that wants to give a try in research with a focus on cryo-EM methods development and that could be interested in doing a PhD after. Thus,  good qualifications and motivation towards research is required. In addition, it would be good to be attracted by matlab/python programming, image processing/machine learning and structural biology.

I offer one year of contract with a competitive salary and working in awesome image processing and machine learning methods.
