Prof. Sereina Riniker's group for Computational Chemistry at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry is interested in the development of methodology for classical molecular dynamics simulations and cheminformatics, and in the application to address challenging biological and chemical questions. The Riniker lab has an opening for a
Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Chemistry
The research project will focus on the investigation of the conformational behaviour of cyclic peptides to understand their passive membrane permeability and the development of molecular dynamics fingerprints for the prediction of physicochemical properties of molecules. The preferred starting date is November 1, 2018.
You should hold a PhD  degree in computational chemistry, chemistry, or biochemistry with a strong background in molecular dynamics simulations or cheminformatics. Experiences with machine learning and good programming skills (C++, Python) are advantageous.
We welcome self-motivated candidates with outstanding academic record, excellent communication skills and professional integrity to apply. Group members will not only have the opportunities to work with cutting-edge resources in a collaborative environment but also to co-work with international faculty and researchers, stimulating creative ideas and research opportunities.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a statement of interest, comprehensive CV and publication list, the names and contact information of two references and copies of degree certificates and transcripts until August 12, 2018. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
