Postdoc in Computational Biophysics

Job description:

A postdoctoral position in computer simulations of membranes and membrane proteins is available at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy (FKF) immediately for a two year period. The position is associated with the MEMPHYS-Center for Biomembrane Physics.

Outstanding candidates with experience in computer simulations/biophysics, and who have obtained degrees in physical chemistry, chemistry, biology, chemical engineering, comp. science and physics are invited to apply. Experience with molecular dynamics simulations is highly beneficial, but can be acquired during the job. The project will use all-atom and coarse-grained simulations, to investigate the fundamental molecular basis of ion transport in biological membranes and ion pumps, and other membrane-associated phenomena. Strong collaboration with experimental groups is expected and the successful candidate will work in a highly collaborative atmosphere at MEMPHYS, working together with theorists and experiment scientists. For other research activities of Dr Khandelia, please refer to

The successful candidate will have access to the DCSC-funded “Horseshoe” super-cluster of more than 2000 processors at the University of Southern Denmark to perform their simulations.

Further information can be obtained from Assistant Professor Himanshu Khandelia (
