Subject: 18.05.14 EARLY STAGE RESEARCHER / PhD POSITION ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL STUDIES OF STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS OF DNA AND RNA SYSTEMS, CEITEC MU, Brno, CZ
An Early Stage Researcher position is available in Jiri Sponer lab (http://www.ibp.cz/en/departments/structure-and-dynamics-of-nucleic-acids/info-about-the-department/; CEITEC, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic) to participate in the research focused on Multiscale theoretical and computational studies (using explicit-solvent atomistic molecular dynamics simulation methods and quantum chemistry) of DNA and RNA molecules, and their molecular interactions with proteins and ligands, with a specific emphasis given to non-canonical molecules such as guanine quadruplexes or folded RNA molecules. The research can be focused on applications as well as method development, in the latter case with emphasis given to development and testing of the simulation force fields. Requirements: Equivalent to a Czech Master's degree (Mgr., Ing., MSc.) from an institution of recognized standing (four or five-year undergraduate degree), must have no more than 4 years of full-time research experience, and must not have been awarded a doctoral degree at the time of recruitment Prior experience in computational studies of nucleic acids (preferable) or proteins, including a relevant research publication in the field Spent at least 2 whole years out of the last 3 outside the Czech Republic Good English language spoken and written We offer: Enrolment in CEITEC PhD School (detailed information available at: http://ls-phd.ceitec.cz/) and a diverse training programme of the LightDyNAmics Marie Sklodowska-Curie European Training Network (MSCA-ETN) Interesting position in a dynamically expanding research institute An attractive salary and benefits package within the MSCA-ETN LightDyNAmics (2300 EUR gross salary plus 370 EUR family contribution if applicable). Current average gross salary in the Czech Republic is 28700 CZK (1130 EUR), the minimum salary is 12.200 CZK (480 EUR) Background of a recognized and successful institution with supportive and international working environment Environment promoting interdisciplinarity and intersectorality of research Excellent in-house computational facilities and direct collaboration with experimental laboratories Experienced research team covering a broad range of topics and computational methodologies Involvement in prestigious international ITN research training network Support for the relocation process (welcome office service) 6 weeks of paid holiday LighDyNAmics Marie-Skodowska-Curie European Training Network The main goal of LightDyNAmics is to achieve a complete understanding of the ultrafast dynamical processes at the molecular scale induced by UV light absorption in DNA and to unveil the mechanisms leading to photodamage of the genetic code. LightDyNAmics is an academia-industry research environment training 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) by crossing the traditional border between theoretical and experimental expertise. This will be achieved by performing independent, yet interrelated and complementary research projects focussed on photoactivated dynamics of DNA, and by developing a variety of new spectroscopic and computational methods. For all the ESRs,personalized training in advanced techniques will be combined with a broad common interdisciplinary background on dynamical processes in bio-macromolecules. The consortium brings together 10 leading academic groups with multidisciplinary expertise (chemistry, physics, biology) and a unique blend of experimental and computational skills. 6 innovative companies, from SMEs specialized in click-chemistry and in biosensors to a pharma industry, will be fully integrated into the research and training programme and help promote the technological exploitation of its results. LightDyNAmics will develop innovative molecular probes for DNA/protein interaction, paving the way to new diagnostic tools and new drugs.
