Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Chemistry
100%, Zurich, fixed-term
Prof. Sereina Riniker's group for Computational Chemistry at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry is interested in the development of methodology for classical molecular dynamics simulations and cheminformatics, and in the application to address challenging biological and chemical questions.
The research project will focus on the investigation of the conformational behaviour of cyclic peptides to understand their passive membrane permeability and binding to protein targets. The preferred starting date is in fall 2022.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree in computational chemistry, chemistry, or biochemistry with a strong background in molecular dynamics simulations. Experiences with Markov state modelling and good programming skills (C++, Python) are advantageous.
We welcome self-motivated candidates with outstanding academic record, excellent communication skills and professional integrity to apply.
Group members will not only have the opportunities to work with cutting-edge resources in a collaborative environment but also to co-work with international faculty and researchers, stimulating creative ideas and research opportunities.
We value diversity
