OFFER DESCRIPTION

The successful candidate will study mechanisms governing the transport of ligands in enzymes using the cutting-edge methods like MSM modeling, adaptive and enhanced sampling simulations. The research will also include the component of a method development. The acquired knowledge will be crucial to enable discoveries of the molecular origins of transport-related pathologies, improvements of binding kinetics of lead-like compounds, and engineering of improved biocatalysts.
