PhD position in Biochemistry - structural biology supported by artificial intelligence, Uppsala University, Sweden

Your goal will be to uncover the structure of photoreceptor proteins using cryo electron microscopy or time-resolved serial crystallography at free electron lasers. In particular, we plan to use cutting-edge methods at the forefront of artificial intelligence (AI) to solve the protein structure to finer detail; we may also use molecular dynamics simulations to underscore structural data. This project will be a at the crossroads of obtaining novel structural information and to advance the methods to obtain these structures.

You are expected to be involved in all steps of the project, i.e. to prepare and to perform experiments and to analyze and publish the data. The choice of sub-projects will be adjusted to your interests and previous knowledge and experiences.
