Subject: 17.11.17 Postdoctoral Position & PhD Positions in Computational Membrane Biophysics in Erlangen, Germany
A Postdoc position / Senior Postdoc position (up to five years) is available in the Computational Biology Group led 
by Prof. Rainer Boeckmann at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), Germany. The successful 
candidate will utilize both atomistic and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations in the study 
of biomembrane organization and function and the analysis of membrane proteins involved in signal 
transduction or transport. Candidates are expected to hold PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, or 
Biochemistry, have a proven experience with molecular dynamics simulations and free energy 
methods, and an excellent understanding of the physics and chemistry of biomembranes.  Good 
knowledge of statistical mechanics  and programming skills are advantageous, as well as previous 
work on force field development.

Additionally, applications are invited for PhD positions (3 years) in theoretical and computational 
membrane biophysics. Candidates should preferably hold a master in computational/theoretical 
physics or chemistry, have a good knowledge of statistical mechanics  and programming skills. 
The PhD student will join the Research Training Group Dynamic Interactions at Biological 
Membranes, see

With approximately 40,000 students, 600-700 professors and approximately 13,000 employees, the 
University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) is one of the largest and strongest research universities in
