Computational Investigations of Complex Biomolecular Systems

This job ad is out of date. Find related Jobs here.

In the group of Dr. Matthias Stein, Molecular Simulations and Design, at the MPI Magdeburg, a PhD position within the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering is available.

Protein-ligand and protein-protein interactions are to be investigated by a range of multiscale simulation techniques. Particular focus is laid on modelling the three-dimensional structure of a receptor, its posttranslational modifications by glycosylation and their effect on substrate recognition.

The methods of choice will range from model generation, molecular dynamics to Brownian dynamics.

Pre-requisites are a profound knowledge of chemistry and structural biology plus some experience with computational chemistry and computational biology.
Please send a cover letter, CV incl. three names of potential referees.
