Subject: 19.06.13 Postdoctoral position in computer simulations of protein-membrane interactions at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland
One ERC-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. The postdoc will investigate the interactions between disordered proteins and lipid membranes in the context of lipid transport and organelle dynamics, in collaboration with experimental labs with expertise in cell biology and biochemical reconstitutions. Our group develops and applies computer simulations to investigate how biological processes involving cellular membranes are regulated at the molecular scale. We combine these in silico investigations with biophysical and biochemical approaches to understand key biological mechanisms with atomistic molecular resolution. Please check our group website (http://www3.unifr.ch/bio/en/research/bioinformatics/vanni.html) for more information. What we offer We offer a stimulating, friendly and interdisciplinary work environment, with excellent working conditions (salary, resources, ...) and frontier research projects. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work with outstanding international collaborators in the field of membrane biology. The position is fully funded for 5 years. In addition, Swiss postdocs have the possibility to apply to prestigious and generous fellowships from the SNF to start an independent career after completion of their postdoctoral fellowship: (http://www.snf.ch/en/funding/careers/ambizione/Pages/default.aspx or http://www.snf.ch/en/funding/careers/eccellenza/Pages/default.aspx) Initial gross annual salary will be of 65,000 CHF (~ 65,000 $). Applicant We are looking for highly motivated, team-oriented independent thinkers. The applicant should have a PhD in physics, chemistry, physical chemistry, biophysics, engineering or a related subject. The applicant should have a background in molecular dynamics simulations of proteins, preferably disordered and/or unfolded, or polymers. Previous experience in combining simulations with experiments is a plus. In general, any previous specific knowledge is less important than strong motivation, enthusiasm for scientific research, problem-solving skills, and possibly a track-record of individual and team accomplishments. Please send your application, including short cover letter (explaining background and motivation) and a complete CV via e-mail to: stefano.vanni at unifr.ch. The positions will remain open until filled.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
