MD simulations of viral membrane fusion inhibitors / Risselada / Goettingen
Send any enquiry or your application as one single pdf file (if possible) by November 16th, 2018 to Dr. Herre Jelger Risselada: firstname.lastname@example.org
The position is funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) for a period of three years, with a salary according to the German salary scale TV-L E13 (65%), and should be filled by winter 2017/18.
Our newly established group focuses on studying complex systems such as biological membranes and bioinspired nano materials with state-of-the-art computional methods. Our main goals are to (i) elucidate the mechanisms and free energy landscape of protein-mediated membrane processes such as, for example, biological membrane fusion or fission, and (ii) to explore potential applications of biomaterials within material- or life sciences. The aimed candidate will explore the molecular mechanisms on how viral restriction factors specially prevent viral fusion – a critical step within viral infection. For more information about our research see our homepage at www.stocs.net.
We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious candidate to join our team in a vibrant and international research environment. Candidates should hold a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in natural sciences (e.g. physics, chemistry or biology). Applications should include a full CV and a short summary of major research interests. The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life. The mission of the University is to employ a greater number of severely disabled persons. Applications from severely disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be given preference. The successful candidate will be required to apply for the PhD programmes of the University.
