The School of Biological Sciences invites application for a Research Fellow (RF) position in computational biophysics and molecular modeling.

Job Description

The main purpose of the project is to investigate the phase behavior of biomacromolecules by using all-atom and coarse-grained molecular simulations. More specifically, the RF will mainly study the liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) in two types of biomolecular systems: a) DNA and chromatins; b) key proteins in actin nucleation. Other protein systems such as those in photosynthesis will also be involved in the project. As the project is a part of a collaborative grant funded by the Ministry of Education, Singapore, the successful candidate is supposed to work with strong self-motivation in a big research team consisting of both computational and experimental researchers.  

Job Requirements

  • PhD degree in a relevant research field (e.g., biophysics)
  • Have a good knowledge of statistical mechanics, programming skills and a strong interest in interdisciplinary projects
  • High level of English and good communication skills, as well as effective team working
  • Priority will be given to candidates with: a) more than three years of training on coarse-grained and multiscale molecular simulation; b) experiences on National Supercomputing Centre Singapore (NSCC); c) a good publication record on modeling chromatin and protein systems

We regret only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
