1 PhD and 1 postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland.
What we offer
We offer a stimulating, friendly and interdisciplinary work environment, with excellent working conditions (salary, resources, …) and frontier research projects in the field of lipid and membrane biology. For more information on the project please check our group website (http://www3.unifr.ch/bio/en/research/bioinformatics/vanni.html) and/or some recent publications (Zoni et al, BioRxiv, 2020; Zoni et al, eLife, 2021; Ardham et al, J. Phys Chem B, 2020; Srinivasan et al., Faraday Discussions, 2020; Campomanes et al, Commun Chem. 2019).
The selected candidates will have the opportunity to interact extensively with outstanding experimental labs in Fribourg, Zurich, Geneva and abroad. PhD and Postdoctoral positions are fully funded for 4 years.
Initial gross annual salary will be 48,000 CHF (» 48,000 $) for PhD students and 65,000 CHF (» 65,000 $) for Postdocs.
We are looking for highly motivated, team-oriented independent thinkers.
Postdoctoral candidates should have a PhD in physics, chemistry, physical chemistry, biophysics, engineering or a related subject. The applicant should have a background in molecular dynamics simulations. Previous experience in simulations of lipid membranes, surfactants or polymers is a plus. The applicant should have a track-record of individual and team accomplishments, and he must be able to work independently and possibly supervise PhD students.
For the PhD position, the applicant should have a Master Degree in physics, chemistry, biology, bioinformatics, computer science, engineering or a related subject. Computer literacy and previous experience with molecular simulations, as well as good communication skills and proficiency in English, are a plus.
In general, any previous specific knowledge is less important than strong motivation, enthusiasm for scientific research and problem-solving skills.
Please send your application, including short cover letter (explaining background and motivation) and a complete CV via e-mail to: stefano.vanni “at” unifr.ch. The positions will remain open until filled.
