Subject: 16.06.22 Postdoctoral position and PhD position in biomolecular simulation at TU Munich
1. POSTDOCTORAL POSITION: A postdoctoral research associate position is available in computational biophysics at Physics Department of TU Munich (Zacharias group: http://www.t38.ph.tum.de) , Germany, to start immediately (initially for 2 years but extendable for up to 5 years). It includes the possibility to participate in supervision of PhD and master students to develop an independent research profile and to possibly apply for third party funding. It also involves participation in teaching within the physics/biophysics curriculum and the possibility of habilitation. The research focus shall be in the area of studying biomolecular dynamics employing molecular mechanics or mixed quantum/classical mechanics methods. It will involve application and development of molecular dynamics simulations and advanced sampling methods as well as docking methodologies. Successful candidates should have a PhD in either physics, or physical chemistry and experience in the area of biomolecular simulations. The Technical University of Munich belongs to the scientific top addresses and is one of the nine Universities of Excellence in the Federal Republic of Germany. The Zacharias group closely collaborates with experimental groups to better understand the dynamics and association of biomolecules. State-of-the-art computer equipment is available including access to supercomputing facilities. 2. PhD-POSITION: A DFG-funded PhD position (SFB1035, salary: 2/3 E13) is available in the Molecular Simulation group (Prof. Zacharias) at TU Munich. Protein-protein and protein-peptide interactions play a major role in basically all biological processes. Many of these interactions involve partner proteins that adopt disordered conformations in solution and fold into defined structures only upon binding to a partner molecules. The focus of the planned research is to study coupled folding and binding of peptides upon association with a receptor protein using molecular simulation approaches. The research project will be performed in close collaboration with experimental groups in the framework of the collaborative research center SFB1035. Successful candidates should have a diploma or master degree in either physics, biophysics or physical chemistry combined with a strong interest in (bio)molecular simulations. Experience with the Linux operating system and a programming language is a plus.
