Postdoctoral Researcher
Chemical Imaging of Plant Biomass with Micro- and Nano-Raman  
Job ID: UCB-013
Institution: Energy Biosciences Institute, Berkeley California
Date Opened: 5/10/2008

Position Description: Development of computational tools for the  
analysis of chemical imaging data. Computational construction of three- 
dimensional maps of plant cell wall material from Raman spectroscopy  

Position Responsibilities: Development of algorithms to indentify  
chemical species from Raman spectroscopy measurements. Processing of  
data to generate two-dimensional images of chemical components in  
plant cell wall material. Use of tomographic methods to construct  
three-dimensional images. Development of maximum likelihood methods to  
extract information from weak spectroscopic data.

Position Qualifications: Strong computational skills with experience  
in their practical application to imaging or complex data analysis.  
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the analysis  
of spectroscopic data or imaging of biological samples. Experience  
with programming languages: C/C++ and scripting languages: Python/ 
Perl. Demonstrated publication record in the computational analysis of  
data and algorithm development. Ability to work in a team environment  
and good communication skills. Ph.D. in physical chemistry, biology,  
physics, computer science or related field. See the program  
description for more details:
