Computational Structural Biology Unit
- This laboratory uses computational approaches to improve our understanding of the structure and function of membrane proteins, and their involvement in neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Diseases.
- Design and implementation of software applications specific to computational structural biology of membrane proteins, and/or their application to relevant problems in structural biology, including membrane protein folding, symmetry and mechanistic studies. Opportunities include development and testing of novel functionalities for existing software packages and databases, as well as development of new tools.
- Candidates should have, or be close to obtaining, a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Computational Chemistry/Physics/Biophysics and/or Mathematics. Demonstrated experience in programming is essential, knowledge of python or C++ an advantage. Candidates with a background in biochemistry and structural biology are particularly encouraged to apply. The ability to learn how to use new software and quickly become expert in its use, critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and the ability to work semi-independently are required.
- Provide a cover letter, a CV, and a list of 2-3 people willing to provide recommendation letters.
- E-mail Dr. Forrest
