OFFER DESCRIPTION

The research groups of Dr. J. Montenegro (ERC-Starting Grant) and Dr. R. García-Fandiño (Ramón y Cajal Researcher) are seeking for a Doctoral candidate with strong interest in the field of Computational Molecular Dynamics Simulations of supramolecular functional assemblies.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a cutting-edge research in Computational Chemistry and Chemical Biology and to work within the framework of international projects funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and the Human Frontiers Science Program (HFSP).

The general aim of the project is to understand, by means of Molecular Dynamics Simulations supported by experimental results, the topological and structural motifs that govern the membrane translocation of peptides and proteins, and to understand the basic principles behind the formation of the complex networks of nanofibers of the cellular cytoskeleton.

 
Description

Applying emerging computational methodologies, such as Coarse-Grained-Molecular Dynamics (CG-MD) and All-atom-Molecular Dynamics(AA-MD) MD accelerated with GPUs, different supramolecular architectures including applications in cellular delivery, molecular encapsulation and controlled delivery will be investigated.

The candidate will incorporate to an interdisciplinary group that actually combines a strong computational approach in the field membrane systems, with biochemical and biophysical characterization techniques of membrane penetrating and bioactive molecules as well as the polymerization and cross-linking of nanofibers in confined systems as cytoskeleton mimics.

 

Requirements

Diploma in Chemistry, Physics or Bioinformatics. Programming experience will be highly considered.

Outstanding individuals with initiative, creativity and team-working ability, good communication skills and proficiency in written and spoken English are essential.

Starting Date and Term: Spring 2018; starting date could be flexible. 3-4 years of contract (annual evaluation)..

 
Deadline: Applications should be sent before March, 30th, 2018.
 

Applications

All the application procedure will be done online. Applicants must fill out the Online application form and they will receive an automatic acknowledgement (confirmation page). The final decision will be communicated via e-mail during April 2018.

Required data and pdf documents include BSc with all undergraduate numeric marks, and MSc (or title which provide access to PhD), as well as a brief CV (2 pages) and contact references.
