A postdoctoral position (for one year renewable up to 3 years) will be available
in our group at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid (Dept. Theoretical Physics) to work on the statistical mechanics of structurally disordered proteins within the project 2019-T1/TIC-12776 funded by the Comunidad de Madrid and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain).
The research will be mostly computational and theoretical, with potential collaborations with experimentalists in Synthetic Biology. The research project aims to characterize the physics of intrinsically disordered proteins, and clarify the role of structurally disordered regions in protein binding. The successful candidate will be in charge of carrying out molecular dynamics' simulations and of extracting biological information from public databases via large-scale analyses and machine learning approaches. This combined information will be then used to propose theoretical models for intrinsically disordered proteins.
The candidate must have a PhD in physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics or computer science, and solid research experience in at least one of the following areas: statistical mechanics, glassy physics, biophysics, bioinformatics, machine learning and/or molecular dynamics simulations. Programming, mathematical modeling and data-analysis skills are required. The annual gross salary will be in between 34000-39000 euros depending on the previous experience (following the regulations of the University)
