Opening for a Ph.D. student at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS)

par Secretaire - 6 juin 2017

Opening for a Ph.D. student in the Molecular and Cellular Modelling group at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS gGmbH) in Heidelberg, Germany

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist to join the Molecular and Cellular Modelling group at HITS as a Ph.D. student as soon as possible. The research project will focus on the development of Brownian dynamics simulation methods implemented in our SDA software (http://mcm.h-its.org/sda) and their application to investigate biomolecular diffusion, binding kinetics, and the effects of macromolecular crowding.

HITS is a private non-profit research institute carrying out multidisciplinary research in the computational sciences. It receives its base funding from the HITS Foundation.

The Molecular and Cellular Modeling group is an interdisciplinary research group that works on the development and application of computer-aided methods to model and simulate biomolecular interactions. The focus is on proteins and the computational approaches are mostly based on the three-dimensional structures of macromolecules. Techniques cover a wide spectrum from interactive, web-based visualization tools to molecular and Brownian dynamics simulations (see http://www.h-its.org/mcm ).

Candidates should possess a Master’s Degree or equivalent qualification in biophysics, biochemistry, physics, scientific computing, or a related discipline. Candidates should preferably have a strong theoretical background, experience in biomolecular modelling and simulation, possess excellent programming skills, and have a genuine interest in interdisciplinary research.

To apply, please enter your application materials at the following link : https://application.h-its.org/inter... The application deadline is 15.06.2017 but applications will be processed as they are received. Please note that applications not submitted via the online system will not be considered. Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Rebecca Wade (rebecca.wade(at)h-its.org)
