3-4 Postdoctoral Scientists + PhD Students / Helsinki
Our computational team in the University of Helsinki is looking for outstanding candidates with experience in computer simulations, and who have recently obtained PhD (postdoc positions) or MSc (PhD student positions) degrees in fields of biological physics, biophysics, soft matter and stat mech, (bio)physical chemistry, machine learning, computational drug design and discovery, or related fields. Experience with molecular dynamics simulations (with GROMACS, NAMD, etc.) and other simulation techniques (DFT, QM/MM, DPD, SRD, LB, etc.) on atomistic and coarse-grained levels is considered an asset.
We are aiming to hire 3-4 new members to our team.
The projects will focus on membrane-associated receptors/proteins with an objective to understand how their dynamics and activation are modulated, how impairment of these modulation mechanisms compromises the function, and how it can be rectified. The proteins in question are involved in abundant diseases that include type 2 diabetes, mitochondrial diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, and impairment of the biological barrier function related to lung function impairment (ARDS, Covid-19, etc.). The research is strongly coupled to collaborations with several first-class experimental teams.
Details including instructions to apply are given in the attached PDF.
