    瑞典哥德堡博士后研究员职位 - 检测隐性allosteric pocket研究
    文章来源:知识人网       更新时间:2018年04月23日

      We're currently looking for talented scientists to join our innovative academic-style Postdoc. From our center in Gothenburg, SE, you'll be in a global pharmaceutical environment, contributing to live projects right from the start. You'll take part in a comprehensive training program, including a focus on drug discovery and development, given access to our existing Postdoctoral research, and encourage d to pursue your own independent research in cutting edge laboratories. It's a newly expanding program spanning a range of therapeutic areas across a wide range of disciplines.

      AstraZeneca (AZ) is a global, innovation-driven biopharmaceutical business that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines for some of the world's most serious diseases. But we're more than one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies. At AZ, we're proud to have a unique workplace culture that inspires innovation and collaboration. Here, employees are empowered to express diverse perspectives – and are made to feel valued, energised and rewarded for their ideas and creativity.

      Postdoc project description: Nowadays, there are more than 30 allosteric modulators in clinical development, which indicates a growing interest of Pharma industry in allosteric control. At AZ, we have many projects targeting allosteric binding sites covering all our disease areas and all major target classes. However, so far, in most cases the discovery of allosteric sites comes as a surprise, rather than a result of dedicated efforts. The aim of the Postdoc project is to change this situation and develop a predictive approach for identification of allosteric pockets using modern computational techniques. A combined approach bridging Monte Carlo and enhanced MD has the high potential to become a game changer in this field. You will have the opportunity to work closely with experts in all relevant fields: crystallographers, biophysicists, computational chemists, etc. and you will have access to relevant AZ internal experimental data not elsewhere available and modern super computing facilities. All in all, we are offering a challenging and very important scientific problem together with the right working environment to make this a success.

      This proje ct will be supported by experienced computational chemists and crystallographers from AZ, who drive novel and recognized research in the field (see e.g. Refs. [1,2,3]). Also, you will get input from key academic experts. You'll update and seek input from the group at regular project meetings, will present to the wider community of AZ computational chemists, postdoc groups, and the senior leadership team. You will be further responsible for planning and writing of scientific papers in high impact journals and presenting the work in international conferences.

      •Knowledge of Linux and High Performance Computing facilities

      Desirable:

      You have experience wi th some of the following:

      •molecular simulations (MD, Monte-Carlo, etc.) of biomolecules

      •exploring conformational space of biomolecules: peptide, proteins, etc.

      •enhanced sampling techniques: metadynamics, umbrella sampling, replica exchange, etc. including knowledge of appropriate collective variables to enhance biomolecule conformational search

      •different biomolecular force fields

      •searching cryptic pockets in biomolecules

      •coding interfaces between different simulation packages

      •writing scripts/tools for automated simulation setup and trajectory analysis

      Skills and capabilities required:

      •Scientific independence, with excellent time management skills, forward planning and delivery focus

      •Strong wri tten and oral communication skills and ability to work well in multidisciplinary teams

      •Demonstrated track record of good-quality scientific publications

      This is a 3 year programme. 2 years will be a Fixed Term Contract, with a 1 year extension which will be merit based. The role will be based in Gothenburg, Sweden with a competitive salary on offer. To apply for this position, please click the apply link below.
