Doctoral researcher position Computational Biophysics, University of Helsinki, Finland

We are seeking an exceptionally talented and motivated doctoral researcher (PhD student), who recently completed their MSc degree in the field of Physics, Chemistry, Computational Biology or any other similar area with good experience in Linux/Unix operating system usage and programming/scripting. Knowledge of simulation software (such as Gromacs, NAMD, etc), analysis tools (MDAnalysis, Jupyter notebooks, etc) with experience in high-performance computing will be considered an advantage.

The selected candidate will be working on the structure and mechanism of mitochondrial respiratory complexes, and their interplay with the lipid/solvent environment. The multi-scale approaches that will be used to study these systems include (but not limited to) classical atomistic and coarse-grained molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and quantum chemical methods, their hybrid variants, etc.
