PhD Positions in CRC 1279
CRC project 1279 The exploration of the human peptidome
As part of this collaborative project that is conducted together with the group of Prof. Dr. Jan Münch at the Institute of Molecular Virology, University of Ulm, we offer a PhD position (starting 1st of June 2023) to apply computational tools for exploring the peptidome and the discovery and development of antimicrobial peptides.
The Computational Bioengineering group of Prof. Dr. Elsa Sanchez Garcia at the Faculty of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering, Technical University Dortmund (https://bci.tu-dortmund.de/professuren/lehrstuehle-arbeitsgruppen/computational-bioengineering/) works on the in-silico discovery, design and optimization of antimicrobial peptides within the Collaborative Research Center 1279 (https://www.uni-ulm.de/med/sfb-1279-home/).
Tasks and responsibilities
- Realization of the projects related to the computational exploration of the peptidome, in-silico characterization and optimization of peptides with antimicrobial potential and the development of computational tools for that purpose.
- Communication of project progress in group meetings as well as in national and international conferences.
- Master degree in chemistry, chemical biology, biochemistry, or related disciplines
- Fundamental interest in computational chemistry or computational biochemistry
- Experience in computational chemistry, bioinformatics, protein biochemistry and peptidomics is an advantage.
What we offer
- Highly collaborative working group
- Salary: According to German pay grade TV-L EG 13/65%
- Duration: 3 years
To apply, please send your CV and cover letter before 15.04.2023 to Prof. Dr. Elsa Sanchez Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org
