PhD and/or Postdoctoral fellow in Structural Bioinformatics, BIOCEV, Czech Republic


Job description:

The successful candidate will have a genuine interest in understanding the structural and functional features of biologically relevant molecules and their interactions employing the tools of structural bioinformatics and molecular modeling, including development and testing of necessary computational methods and procedures. Experience with molecular modeling such as homology modeling, molecular dynamics simulations or docking of biological systems is necessary, ability to perform quantum mechanics calculations on biological or organic molecules, and/or programming skills is an advantage.

The successful candidate will work with Jiri Cerny at the Institute of Biotechnology CAS (IBT) as a member of the Laboratory of Structural Bioinformatics of Proteins and collaborate with the IBT and BIOCEV based research groups, as well as with external groups on state-of-the-art medically and biotechnologically oriented cross-disciplinary projects.

The contract is offered for three years with a possible extension.

Start date: September 2017

Workplace location: Centre of Excellence BIOCEV, Vestec, Prague West region, Czech Republic.

IBT is located in the BIOCEV Centre completed in the year 2015, offering access to the in house computational resources as well as to the National Grid Infrastructure of the Czech Republic. It is also fully equipped for experimental work in molecular and cellular biology with emphasis on structural and biophysical characterization of studied molecular systems.

Send written applications including a cover letter and a professional CV, either in printed or electronic form to address:

Institute of Biotechnology CAS, v. v. i., Prumyslova 595, 25250 Vestec, Czech Republic
