 Postdoctoral Position in Computational Biophysics




The Institute of Physical Chemistry at the University of Muenster (Germany) offers a postdoctoral position to work on atomistic computer simulations of DNA and DNA-polymer hybrid systems. This project is part of the international Research Centre TRR 61 "Multilevel Molecular Assemblies: Structure, Dynamics and Function". It brings together a multidisciplinary team of experts on self-assembly processes from Muenster and Beijing. Our own group is specialized in studying the microscopic properties of complex systems via computer simulations.

In this specific project the folding and unfolding dynamics and the thermodynamic properties of tetrameric DNA as well as for DNA-polymer hybrid systems are studied for different external conditions with advanced numerical methods on a microscopic level. We have an intensive collaboration with two experimental groups, working on proton-driven DNA nanomotors and bio-sensors. Among others the results of pulling experiments will be compared with the corresponding outcome of computer simulations.

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic person with a PhD in physics, chemistry, biophysics or a related subject. The candidates should have a strong background in the atomistic modeling of biological systems and statistical physics as well as good computational skills.

We offer excellent research conditions and a stimulating working atmosphere. The candidate will be employed at a DFG-Postdoctoral level. The contract may be extended up to 3 years. Please send complete applications to Prof. Dr. Andreas Heuer via andheuer@uni-muenster.de. Application deadline is the 31st of August 2012.
