PhD student (m/f) in Computational Biology of Molecular Protein Signalling

The Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems
is looking for a
PhD student (m/f) in
Computational  Biology of Molecular Protein Signalling.
We are looking for a motivated candidate with a profound knowledge and expertise in structural modelling of protein-small molecule and protein-protein complexes.
The Molecular Simulations and Design Group is working on multiscale modelling of protein signal transduction networks.

Protein signalling pathways represent a complex network of interacting proteins and/or small molecules. Post-translational modifcations are carriers of information and signal induction and may stimulate further downstream processes. These can be the target of future pharmaceutical applications.

Expertise and experience with bioinformatics, molecular dynamics and protein-protein docking is expected.

The project is part of the interdisciplinary “Research Center Dynamic Systems: Biosystems Engineering ” funded by the Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt within the “Excellence Program”. Project partner is a.o. the Medical Faculty, Institute of Experimental Internal Medicine.

About Max-Planck-Institut für Dynamik komplexer technischer Systeme

In 1996 the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems was established. The foundation director is Prof. em. Dr.-Ing. Ernst Dieter Gilles. The institute in Magdeburg is the first institute of the Max Planck Society dedicated to the engineering sciences and is supposed to bridge the gap between basic research and industrial applications. The neighbourhood to the Otto von...
