2nd October 2020 : Postdoc positions in theoretical and computational biophysics at the Max-Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Gottingen, Germany


The Department of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics is looking for
people interested in contributing to following projects: Theory and Algorithms
for Structure Determination from Ultrafast Single Molecule X-FEL Diffraction or
Fluctuation-Correlation X-Ray Scattering. The aim of both projects is to develop
Bayesian or Deep Learning methods to obtain high-resolution molecular structures
and dynamics from sparse and noisy experimental data. We also have openings
for exciting MD projects on: Ribosomal Translation: Molecular Mechanisms and
Antibiotics; Statistical Mechanics and Function of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins; Optimal Free Energy and Entropy Calculations; Markovian Free Energy Models
of F-ATP Synthase Function; Fast Multipole Based Constant pH Methods.
The successful candidate has a keen interest and strong skills in computational
biomolecular physics, skills in structural biology, statistical mechanics, and scientific
computing, and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research and collaboration
with experimental groups. You should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in any
of these or a related field. The position is limited to two years with a possibility
of extension. Payment and benefits are based on the TVoD (wage agreement
for public service employees) guidelines. The starting date is flexible. The group
language is English, so no German language skills are required - but it’s a great
opportunity for you to learn German! Please visit the department website for further
