Subject: 17.04.24 Open PhD/Postdoc Position in Computational Biophysics, MPI-BPC Goettingen, Germany
The Computational Biomolecular Dynamics Research Group at the Department 
for Theoretical and Computational Biophysics at the Max Planck Institute 
for Biophysical Chemistry (Goettingen, Germany) aims at an understanding 
of the physics and function of proteins, protein complexes, and other 
biomolecular structures at the atomic level through molecular dynamics 
simulations and invites applications as:

Ph.D. Student or Postdoc (Code Number 20-17) for the project 
"Collective Dynamics Underlying Protein Allostery"

The hosting lab has made significant recent progress in deciphering 
collective motions underlying allosteric transitions in protein-protein 
recognition as well as cooperativity in substrate binding. The objective 
is to investigate how widespread the identified mechanisms are and thus to 
answer the question if these represent a generally employed class of 

The successful candidate has a keen interest in computational molecular 
biophysics and skills in structural biology, physical chemistry, 
statistical mechanics, and biocomputing and holds a Master's (or 
equivalent) or PhD degree in any of these or a related field. 

The Ph.D. Student will have the chance to participate in one of several 
available Ph.D. programs, with three years funding and a possibility of 
extension, in collaboration with the University of Goettingen. The Postdoc 
position is limited to two years with a possible extension. The payment 
and benefits are based on the guidelines for the German labour agreement 
in public services.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals 
with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications 
from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks
to increase the number of women in those areas where they are 
underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

Please send your application including a cover letter (explaining background 
and motivation), CV, and publication record (if applicable) preferably as one
single PDF file via e-mail until May 31, 2017 to:
