Subject: 17.06.30 Postdoc positions, Structure-based drug design, Uppsala University, Sweden
Up to two postdoctoral researcher positions in computational chemistry and 
computer-aided drug design are available from the 1st of September 2017 in 
Jens Carlssons group in the computational biology and bioinformatics 
programme at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, 
Uppsala University, Sweden. The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology is
one of the most international, broad and distinguished biomolecular 
departments in Europe, comprising six research programs covering subjects 
such as bioinformatics, microbiology, and biophysics. 

Jens Carlssons research focuses on development of methods for 
structure-based drug design and application of these techniques to 
discover ligands of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), often in close 
collaboration with experimental groups and the pharmaceutical industry. 
The Carlsson lab is a cross-disciplinary and international research team 
that is part of the Science for Life Laboratory ( 
Visit the group web page for more information (

Duties: We are seeking up to two highly motivated researchers who will work 
on (1) development of new methods for structure-based drug discovery with 
molecular docking or (2) modeling of GPCRs with the aim to identify ligands 
of therapeutic targets. The researchers will be part of an ERC starting
grant project that will be initiated at the end of 2017.

Requirements: The applicants must hold a PhD degree and should have 
expertise in structure-based modeling of protein-ligand complexes. 
Experience in programming and modeling of GPCRs 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.
