Subject: 20.02.07 Multiple PhD and Postdoctoral positions in Computational Biophysics of Protein-Membrane Interactions. Fribourg, Switzerland
Multiple ERC and SNSF-funded PhD and postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the 
Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. 
The projects will focus on the molecular and structural understanding of two fascinating 
protein-membrane systems (membrane contact sites and the TOR complex 2) by means of 
multi-scale molecular dynamics simulations and advanced analysis approaches. 
The TORC2 project will be carried out in collaboration with the labs of Aurelien Roux and
Robbie Loewith (University of Geneva) and Ruben Fernandez Busnadiego 
(University of Gttingen), in the context of a SINERGIA grant. 
The membrane contact sites project will be carried out in combination with the labs of 
Anne-Claude Gavin (University of Geneva) and Ruben Fernandez Busnadiego (University of Gttingen).

Please check our group website (http://www3.unifr.ch/bio/en/research/bioinformatics/vanni.html) 
for more information. 

What we offer 

We offer a stimulating, friendly and interdisciplinary work environment, with excellent working 
conditions (salary, resources, ...) and frontier research projects. The selected candidates will have
the opportunity to interact extensively with outstanding experimental labs in Fribourg 
(e.g. at the Adolphe Merkle Institute, http://ami.swiss), Geneva and abroad. 
PhD and Postdoctoral positions are fully funded for 4 years. 
Initial gross annual salary will be 48,000 CHF for PhD students and 80,000 CHF for Postdocs.

Applicant 

We are looking for highly motivated, team-oriented independent thinkers. 

Postdoctoral candidates should have a PhD in physics, chemistry, physical chemistry, 
biophysics, engineering or a related subject. The applicant should have a background in 
molecular dynamics simulations or computational chemistry, preferably of proteins. 
Previous experience in simulations of lipid membranes or surfactants is a plus. 
The applicant should have a track-record of individual and team accomplishments, 
and he must be able to work independently and possibly supervise PhD students.

For the PhD position, the applicant should have a Master Degree in physics, chemistry, 
biology, bioinformatics, computer science, engineering or a related subject. 
Computer literacy and previous experience with molecular simulations, 
as well as good communication skills and proficiency in English, are a plus.

In general, any previous specific knowledge is less important than strong motivation, 
enthusiasm for scientific research and problem-solving skills.

Please send your application, including short cover letter (explaining background and 
motivation) and a complete CV via e-mail to: stefano.vanni at unifr.ch. 
The positions will remain open until filled.
