          Research Position, Grenoble, France                                  
           

          This is an informal message to advertise a permanent research position that will be available in the fall of 2021 for a computational researcher in the modeling group of the Chemistry and Biology of Metals Laboratory (https://www.cbm-lab.fr/en) at the CEA in Grenoble, France.

          Applicants’ principle research interest should be in the modeling and simulation of proteins and related systems using molecular mechanics, molecular dynamics, docking, homology modeling and related techniques. Experience with other methods (e.g. quantum chemistry, QM/MM) is welcome but not required.

          Researchers of all nationalities and levels of experience are encouraged to apply. There is an expectation that the successful applicant will take over the direction of the modeling group, either immediately or after a trial period of appropriate duration, depending on experience and familiarity with the French system.

          The formal procedure for application will be announced sometime in 2021.

          Requests for additional information should be sent to “martin.field@cea.fr”, “giulia.veronesi@cea.fr” or “yohann.moreau@cea.fr”.

          Expires: Preferred deadline November 30, 2020, or until the positions have been filled.
          Job Description
          Two positions in computational biophysics / biological physics. The positions are for postdoctoral scientists
          and/or PhD students.
          Eligibility. Outstanding candidates with experience in computer simulations, and who have obtained PhD
          (postdoc positions) or MSc (PhD student positions) degrees in fields of biological (soft matter) physics,
          biophysics, (bio)physical chemistry, computational sciences, machine learning, and related fields including stat
          mech in stat physics are invited to apply. Experience with molecular dynamics simulations (with GROMACS,
          NAMD, etc.) and other simulation techniques (DFT, QM/MM, DPD, SRD, LB, etc.) on atomistic and coarsegrained
          levels is considered as an asset.
          Working Environment. The postdocs and PhD students will be part of the Biological Physics group directed by
          Ilpo Vattulainen. The group has ~20 members. The group specializes in multi-scale simulations using a wide
          arsenal of techniques ranging from QM to atomistic and coarse-grained simulations. Collaborations with
          experimental and theoretical teams are strong. The work environment is relaxed and the successful candidate
          will have an opportunity to influence the project content. The group has been granted funding by, e.g., ERC,
          Academy of Finland Center of Excellence scheme, Human Frontier Science Program, EU, etc.
          Funding for the Positions. The gross salary will be about 3500-
          4000 EUR/month for postdocs, and about 2300-3000
          EUR/month for PhD students depending on experience.
          Project. The projects will focus on membrane-associated
          receptors / proteins with an objective to understand how their
          dynamics and activation are modulated, and how impairment of
          these modulation mechanisms compromises the function. The
          proteins in question are involved in abundant diseases. The
          research is strongly coupled to collaborations with several firstclass
          experimental teams. Detailed project description will be given during the interviews.
          Computing Resources. The successful candidates will have access to quite outstanding computing resources in
          the national supercomputing center (www.csc.fi, about 7 petaflops) and in the pre-exascale computing center
          LUMI (https://www.lumi-supercomputer.eu/, 200 petaflops).
          Contact. Further information can be obtained from Ilpo Vattulainen (Ilpo.Vattulainen@helsinki.fi).
          Application Procedure. Applications must be sent in the PDF format, and must include CV, list of publications,
          description of research interests, and names of 3 people willing to provide a letter of recommendation.
          Application including all this material should be sent to Vattulainen as a single PDF file. Recommendation
          letters are not crucial at this stage but may of course be sent separately.
          Deadline. Applications are considered until the positions have been filled. Applicants who are short-listed for
          the positions will be contacted personally.

          COVID-19. In these difficult times, it is justified to emphasize that Finland is one of the safest countries worldwide.
          Finland is also generally a very safe country to live in, including an excellent health care system. We enjoy
          Finland's beautiful nature and the cleanest air in the world. Helsinki is an international city with very good
          services for families and children. Everyone in our group has the right to telecommute.
