We are looking for candidates interested in completing a doctoral thesis in the group of Daniel Castaño Díez at the Basque Center for Biophysics / Instituto Biofisika at the Leioa Campus of the University of the Basque Country. The position is immediately available, and pplications will be considered upon arrival.
Description of tasks
The “Laboratory for Numerical Methods of Cryo Electron Tomography” is committed to the development of new computational approaches for the automated analysis and interpretation of three-dimensional images of cells and tissues. The thesis project will focus on the application of Deep Learning methodologies to locate and structurally characterize small proteins in their physiological environment. To this, we will implement state-of-the-art Image Processing into our in-house software package Dynamo.
