role/capacity Her responsibilities may include the development of publicly available software for
calculating the 3D and functional sites of protein interactions and complexes from genomic
information. Madhuri would be expected to oversee version control of code development, turn
research code into pipelines for use by internal researchers as well as collaborators, and
develop publicly available software in the research area of identifying evolutionary constraints
from sequences; will also work with the researchers as the project manager for collaborations
with other faculty on structure determination of membrane proteins and complexes. This
position is Salary Grade 057 has a range of starting salary of $60,200 to $102,200. Our
