Subject: 18.02.08 Postdoctoral position in Computational Biophysics/Biochemistry at the Biomedical Research Foundation, Academy of Athens, Greece
A postdoctoral position is available to work in the laboratory of Dr. Zoe Cournia at the 
Biomedical Research Foundation, Academy of Athens, Greece. 

The researcher will work on the allosteric regulation of proteins, identification of cryptic binding 
pockets and performing computer-aided drug design. More specifically, the study focus is on 
the structure and dynamics of mutated vs wild-type proteins in water and/or in association 
with model membranes using unbiased and enhanced sampling Molecular Dynamics 
simulations. Moreover, the postdoctoral researcher will work on binding affinity free energy 
calculations and computer-aided drug design for targeting identified allosteric pockets.

The following qualifications are required:

	Diploma and PhD in Chemistry, Physics, Pharmacy, Biology or related discipline
	No more than 2 years after finishing PhD degree
	EU nationality
	Proven experience in computational chemistry and molecular simulation techniques
	At least two first author publications
	Programming experience
	Excellent knowledge (written and spoken) of the English language

The position is announced for one year with the possibility for renewal and can commence 
as soon as possible. Interested candidates please email a CV to zcournia~!,
