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: , 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.
Please, send your CV and cover letter describing your research interests 
and explaining your interest in either the postdoctoral or the PhD position,
including the addresses of three referees to:
