18th months Post-doc at IBMM (Montpellier) on molecular modeling.
The Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron (IBMM CNRS UMR5247) at Montpellier in France offers an 18 months contract, funded by FRM (foundation pour la recherche médicale) for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow, ideally beginning in January 2023. The objective of the recruited post-doc will be to analyze the already obtained data and run complementary molecular dynamics simulations to provide a global mechanical view of how these complex systems behave at the membrane surface. The work will be performed in close collaboration with experimentalists in the laboratory, including biochemists and chemists for validation purposes. This collaboration could include the production of protein variants and the synthesis/testing of new ligands.
The seeked candidate would ideally have a good experience in running / analyzing molecular dynamics simulations of peptides and proteins, and a validated PhD in a related field. She/He will have good knowledge of classical force-fields and MD codes and especially Gromacs; a plus would be to already have practiced coarse-grained force-fields (MARTINI FF). The candidate must be autonomous under the linux environment, and know at least one scripting language to analyze all produced data (python, R, etc …). The candidate must be fluent in English and able to present her/his results either to specialists or non-specialists.
