Subject: 21.05.26 PhD position - computational identification of cancer drug resistance mutations, Innsbruck, Austria
A fully funded PhD position (up to 4 years) is available in the lab of 
Dr. Teresa Kaserer at the Institute of Pharmacy, University of Innsbruck, 
Austria. The group focuses on the development and application of 
computational tools to identify and investigate protein mutations conferring
resistance to targeted cancer drugs (Kaserer & Blagg, Cell Chem. Biol. 2018).
In addition, oncogenic protein mutations will be evaluated. This work 
concentrates on structure-based approaches and the successful applicant will
therefore apply a range of computational modelling and drug design
techniques such as homology modelling, docking, and protein design and 
visualization tools. The student will work in a highly interdisciplinary 
and collaborative environment and will have the opportunity to test the 
prioritized mutations and/or compounds in the wet lab by themselves.

The ideal applicant is a highly motivated individual with a strong 
interest in applying computational tools to address complex chemical and 
biological questions. A solid background in chemistry and 
pharmacology/molecular biology, such as a Masters degree in Pharmacy, 
Chemistry, Biology, or a related discipline, is required. 
Previous experience with computational chemistry, cheminformatics, 
or computational drug design tools and software packages is a plus. 

Candidates interested in this PhD position should send an e-mail with 
their CV, a motivation letter, and the name and contact details of at 
least one reference to until 
30th of June 2021 the latest.
The earliest starting date is 1st of August 2021 and negotiable.
