Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 42 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö.
The André lab at the department of chemistry combine computational and experimental methods to understand the structure, interactions and evolution of proteins. A fundamental goal is to encode our understanding of proteins into computational and experimental methods that enables the design self-assembling protein systems. We also want to understand the process of self-assembly by inferring self-assembly pathways from simulated protein structures and time-resolved experimental data.

The postdoctoral position is announced in a project funded by European Research Council (ERC) targeted at development of new computational and experimental methods for de novo design homomeric protein assemblies. The postdoctoral researcher will work on computational method development with and without Rosetta, computationally design assemblies and collaborate with experimentalists for validation engineered proteins.
The candidate should have a strong background in computational modeling of macromolecules and method development with C++ and/or python. Publications in peer-reviewed journals in areas relevant to the position is required and the candidate must be fluent in English (written and spoken). The candidate should be able to independently lead the computational work in this project and interact smoothly and efficiently with the other members of the team with different backgrounds.
Lund University provides postdoctoral positions with excellent benefits at competitive salary levels. The starting date is negotiable, but the earliest starting point is 05/2018. Contact Ingemar André for further information about the position.
