Subject: 23.03.14 Postdoc on QM/MM simulations of protein&DNA spectroscopy - Univ. Padua, Italy
The fellowship is at the Department of Chemical Sciences of the University 
of Padua, under the joint supervision of Prof. Stefano Corni and
Dr. Laura Zanetti Polzi. It is supported by the EIC Pathfinder  
grant iSenseDNA - "Computation driven development of novel in-vivo-like 
DNA-nanotransducers for biomolecules structure identification". 

This project, encompassing both experimental and theoretical/computational 
units, focuses of the interaction between DNA supramolecular assemblies 
and biomolecules (peptides and proteins). The main  goal of the fellowship
is the calculation of spectroscopic signals arising from DNA-protein 
assemblies by means of hybrid  quantum/classical computational approaches.
This will require application of quantum-chemical methodologies and 
set-up and production of molecular dynamics simulations.
Given the inherent interdisciplinarity of the project, the successful 
candidates will work in a friendly and multi-disciplinary environment, 
collaborating closely with experimental and theoretical/computational 
leading research groups, with the possibility of spending abroad part 
of the working time.

Candidate Requirements: The successful applicants should possess a PhD 
in computational chemistry or related disciplines, excellent research 
accomplishment and very good communication skills in written and spoken 

Desired qualifications: The project is extremely wide-ranging and 
experience in one or more of the following areas would be advantageous: 
electronic structure calculations; molecular dynamics simulations; use of
supercomputing facilities; scientific programming.

Duration of the fellowship: The position is for two years with the 
possibility for renewal for an additional year (funding already secured) 
and is expected to start in June-July 2023. Salary will be
commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Interested candidates should contact Prof. Stefano Corni and 
Dr. Laura Zanetti Polzi by sending their resume at the email address
