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 ( 
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:

( or

Initial gross annual salary will be of 65,000 CHF (~ 65,000 $).


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 The positions will remain open until filled.
