1 Postdoc and 1 PhD position MPI Göttingen

1 Postdoc and 1 PhD position in Computational NMR at the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry

are available. The aim of the project is to further develop the PALES method (Zweckstetter, Nature Protocols 2008) to predict residual dipolar couplings from a given 3D structure. The project requires experience in C programming. NMR and/or biochemical knowledge is advantageous.

An excellent environment is available for training in the area of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, is one of the top research institutes in Germany. The NMR center at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry houses numerous, state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers from 400 to 900 MHz for both solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. In addition, a fully equipped laboratory for production of recombinant proteins is available.

The Ph.D. position (BAT IIa/2) is limited for two years but can be extended for an additional year. The postdoc position (BAT IIa) is available for three years.

Interested applicants should send a CV and contact information for two references to:
