Subject: 16.08.13 Postdoc positions, Structure-based drug design, Uppsala University, Sweden
Job Description:
The positions are available in Jens Carlssons group at the department of 
Medicinal Chemistry, Uppsala University. The goal of the Carlsson labs 
research is to use molecular modeling to study protein-ligand interactions,
focusing in particular on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). The 
Carlsson lab uses atomic-resolution modeling to understand receptor 
function and to design ligands of these pharmaceutically important targets, 
often in close collaboration with experimental groups. The Carlsson lab is 
a young and international research team that recently joined Uppsala 
University and is also part of the Science for Life Laboratory 
( See the group web page for more information:
Research area:
We are seeking a highly motivated research fellow who will work on 
modeling of GPCRs using a wide range of computational techniques 
(molecular dynamics simulations, homology modeling, molecular docking) 
to design ligands and to study receptor function.
To be eligible for employment as a postdoctoral researcher, your PhD 
(or equivalent) must have been awarded at most three years before the 
closing date for the application. In some circumstances (for example 
parental leave, periods of illness or certain other cases), this period 
may be extended. The applicant should have expertise in at least two of 
the three areas: protein structure prediction, molecular docking, molecular 
dynamics simulations. Experience in modeling of GPCRs and 
programming/scripting is preferred, but not required. Good English 
language skills and the ability to work in a team are required. Personal 
suitability will receive special attention in the selection process.  

The application should be sent to jens.carlsson.lab(a) The 
application should include  a short letter with research 
interests/expertise, CV, degree diploma, and contact information for 
at least two references.
