Researcher in Computational Biophysics
KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering Sciences
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
Research and teaching conducted at the Department of Physics span from basic science topics in condensed matter physics, biophysics, mathematical physics, atomic, nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics to applied areas such as medical imaging, nuclear reactor physics, nuclear reactor technology and nuclear power safety.
The division of Computational Biophysics develops some of the world’s most used tools for modelling biological systems, and leads the EU-funded center-of-excellence BioExcel. As part of this center, we seek a researcher who will work with development of algorithms, programs and computational techniques focused on molecular dynamics, in particular the program GROMACS. The duties involve both advanced scientific programming, making programs more usable to solve concrete biological/chemical problems, and conducting internationally competitive research in the field. The work is part of a larger team, but has a large degree of independence and involves travel to collaborators both in Europe and the US.
PhD in computational chemistry, computational physics, or equivalent field. Experience from working with parallel programming (C++, Python), using and documenting scientific applications. Prior experience from molecular dynamics in general and GROMACS in particular is a strong merit, as is experience from modelling macromolecules such as proteins and membranes. Active research in the field is also a merit. The position requires a very good command of written and spoken English.
