Updated: 15 days ago
Deadline: 15 Nov 2023

A two year postdoctoral position in biomolecular simulations of membranes and membrane proteins is available at PhyLife: Physical Life Science Center at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), Odense in the group of Associate Professor Himanshu Khandelia . The incoming candidate will work in a highly collaborative environment together with theorists and experimental scientists. 

The project revolves around implementing molecular simulations and developing new techniques for simulations of transmembrane proteins, particularly those involved in ion transport. The incoming postdoc will have the opportunity to mould the project to a significant degree.

The candidate should have a good knowledge of statistical mechanics, good English communication skills and experience with all-atom or coarse-grained molecular simulations. The candidate should be comfortable with programming and the Linux programming environment. Candidates with background in Physics, Physical Chemistry and Engineering are desirable. Candidates with only prior experience in empirical methods like docking or structural bioinformatics are not encouraged to apply. The successful candidate(s) will have access to state-of-the-art supercomputing resources in Denmark and Europe.
