Job Description

We have an opening at the Magnetic Resonance Center (CERM) of the University of Florence for a post-doctoral grant or "assegno di ricerca" for the development and application of bioinformatics tools especially in the field of structural biology of proteins and metalloproteins. This research is framed within different projects funded by the European Commission, and involves the use of cloud- or grid-based computational infrastructures.

The CERM lab is a core center of the INSTRUCT ESFRI infrastructure for structural biology (www.structuralbiology.eu), with a specific expertise in high resolution NMR spectroscopy of biological systems in solution and in the solid state. We also have a long-standing tradition in the study of metalloproteins, experimentally and through bioinformatics/computational biology. Some recent computational work is: doi:10.1038/srep09486, 10.1007/s00775-014-1128-3, 10.1093/nar/gks1063, 10.1093/bioinformatics/btr415.

Interested candidates should contact Dr. Antonio Rosato, rosato@cerm.unifi.it. Applications for PhD scolarships are also welcome.

Requirements

- Background in bioinformatics / computational biology
