We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the group of Dr Jörg Standfuss (www.psi.ch / lbr / standfuss-joerg), dedicated to time-
resolved crystallography at synchrotrons and X-Ray lasers. Your main task will consist in developing computational methods for connecting experimental data from time-
resolved serial femtosecond crystallography using molecular dynamics techniques. The resulting molecular movies’ of activation will help us to understand protein function at high spatial and temporal resolution.
Structural snapshots for several membrane protein targets are already available and more will be collected at SwissFEL in the course of the project.
The project will be done in close collaboration with Dr Xavier Deupi (www.psi.ch / lbr / deupi-xavier), an expert in the study of G protein-
coupled receptors using computational methods.
Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, in addition to personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture.
If you wish to optimally combine work and family life or other personal interests, we are able to support you with our modern employment conditions and the on-site infrastructure.
Your employment contract is limited to two years.
