  • Post-doctorial position
    We are going to open soon a post-doctoral position in my group at SISSA, Trieste, Italy, deadline June 1st, 2018.

    Research will be focused on the development and application of computer simulation methods to RNA structural dynamics. In particular, the candidate is expected to work on the combination of molecular dynamics simulations with experimental data available through collaborating groups. Our group is currently mostly working using NMR data, but we plan to include other data too. We do both method development and applicative work. All the developed methods are included in the open source package PLUMED, which is co-developed in our group. Our main tool is atomistic molecular dynamics, but we also use coarse-grained models and bioinformatics tools. More information on our research activities can be found at the following websites:
    Recent publications can be found on Google Scholar.

    Ideal candidates should have a background in Physics, Chemistry, or Computational Biology, and experience in the computer simulation of biomolecules. Experience in one or more of the following fields will be taken into account:
    • Molecular dynamics simulations of nucleic acids (in particular RNA).
    • Development of atomistic force-fields for biomolecules.
    • Development and/or application of enhanced sampling methods.
    • Development and/or application of methods to combine experimental data with molecular simulations.
    Position will be two-years long, extendable if necessary, and is expected to start before the end of 2018. Salary will be in line with European standards.

    In case you are interested in applying, please contact the principal investigator (bussi@sissa.it) as soon as possible (possibly before June 1st, 2018). Please include
    • Your full Curriculum Vitae.
    • A list of publications.
    • A brief statement of your interest in our research.
    • Names and email addresses of at least two references.
