Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a postdoctoral scholar position in biochemistry. The funds for this fellowship are available for two years. Applications are welcome before November 28, 2018.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 1 year in the first instance.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on mutational basin-hopping (MBH) optimisation of biomolecular structure and function, under the supervision of Professor David J. Wales. The project is funded by the EPSRC.

The aim of the project is to develop the MBH approach into a practical tool for design of target proteins and nucleic acids. Applicants should have expertise in potential energy landscape theory applied to biomolecules. Prior knowledge of the GMIN, OPTIM and PATHSAMPLE codes, and mutational basin-hopping, is required, along with experience of large-scale biomolecular computer simulation.

The successful candidate will hold, or should be about to obtain, a PhD in a relevant discipline (i.e. Mathematics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Applied Physics).

Please ensure that you upload your Curriculum Vitae (CV), a covering letter and publications list in the upload section of the online application. If you upload any additional documents that have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application.
