The Departament of Physical Chemistry at Gdansk University of Technology is seeking to recruit a PhD student to work within the group of Dr. Jacek Czub on mechanisms and driving forces in various biomolecular systems, starting in October 2023 (at the earliest) with the standard PhD scholarship that can be further increased based on criteria of academic excellence.

We are a dynamically developing team of researchers investigating the molecular mechanisms and driving forces behind biologically relevant phenomena. In our research we employ numerical simulations based on molecular models, as well as combine multidisciplinary knowledge from the fields of chemistry, physics, biology and computer science. In scientific work, we actively encourage a creative and inquisitive atmosphere by fostering open exchange of thoughts, ideas and expertise. In particular, our research, based on: i) numerical simulations of classical and quantum chemical (ab initio) molecular dynamics ii) calculation and decomposition of free energies of molecular interactions rooted in statistical mechanics, iii) analysis of numerical data (data science) is focused on the issues of: i) conformational changes and energy transmission within proteins, ii) specificity in protein-ligand, protein-DNA and protein-protein interactions, also for applications in knowledge-based drug design, iii) impact of the lipid bilayer environment on the conformations, orientation, transport and interactions of biologically relevant molecules. For more specific information about possible topics of PhD research, please, visit our webpage at  and/or contact the PI directly ( ).

To apply send your cover letter including research accomplishments and interests, CV, names and contact information (preferably e-mail) of at least 2 professional referees to .
