Advt No.14/2020 : Appointment of a Graduate Trainee in Computational Structural Biology

Job description:

Computational modeling of 3D structures of large macromolecular assemblies

Structures of protein complexes contribute to our understanding of mechanistic details of biological processes and the roles of these molecular machines in disease. However structures of large protein assemblies are difficult to obtain using any single experimental method. We use computational modeling to determine such structures by combining a variety of experimental data, physical theories, and statistical inference.

On the method development front, we are interested in developing methods to improve model representation and validate the models.

On the applications front, we are applying these modeling methods to characterize assemblies at cell-cell junctions.

Qualification & Experience required:

  • Bachelor or Masters in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or Bioinformatics or Physics with Minimum % of marks: 75.

  • At least 1 year project experience that involves programming; ideally in computational biology.

Skills required:

  • Programming experience in Python/C++ or any other language.

  • Comfortable working in Linux environment.

Number of position: 1

Age limit: 50

Salary offered: 25,000 (without CSIR/GATE/equivalent qualification), 31000 + 24% HRA (with CSIR/GATE/equivalent qualification)

Last date for receipt of application: 20th, November 2020.

Ideal candidate profile:

The ideal candidate possesses strong programming skills and is motivated to apply these skills in the structural biology domain.
