Description

The lab of Igor Berezovsky at the Bioinformatics Institute is looking for highly
motivated postdoctoral researcher in Computational Biophysics/Bioinformatics.
The project is a continuation of the group’s innovative work in the field of protein
allosteric regulation (PLOS Comp Biol 12, e1004678 (2016), Curr Opin Struct Biol
37, 1 (2016), Bioinformatics 33, 3996 (2017), PLOS Comp Biol 14, e1006228
(2018), Nucl Acids Res 47, D265 (2019), Curr Opin Struct Biol 56, 18 (2019),
Structure 27, 866 (2019)). It includes a work on the molecular model of allosteric
regulation with the focus on inducing required allosteric signaling, exploring and
tuning effects of the ligand-binding, and developing in silico approaches for the
design of allosteric drugs. Collaboration with experimental groups on the
validation of computational predictions will also be continued (Biochemistry 56,
228 (2017)).

Applications containing
· a letter of motivation with statement of research interests
· curriculum vitae
· names and contact information of two references
should be sent by e-mail to Group Leader Igor N. Berezovsky
The three-year position is available from September 2019.
