Rese­arch Assist­ant (PhD can­did­ate) - 0.65 work­ing time - salary grade 13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

Work­ing field:

Rese­arch in the Bio­molecu­lar Mod­el­ling Group in the field of Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Chem­istry: Our Rese­arch is mainly focus­sed on molecu­lar dynam­ics sim­u­la­tions of vari­ous bio­lo­gical pho­tore­cept­ors com­bined with the com­pu­ta­tion of spec­tro­sco­pic prop­er­ties by means of quan­tum mech­an­ical hybrid meth­ods and molecu­lar mech­an­ical hybrid meth­ods. The PhD can­did­ate will invest­ig­ate the struc­tural and dynam­ical prop­er­ties of the phyto­chrome pho­tore­cep­tor at a the­or­et­ical level and in tight col­lab­or­a­tion with exper­i­men­tal groups. Spe­cial empha­sis will be given to elu­cid­at­ing the pro­ton­a­tion indu­ced struc­tural chan­ges of pho­to­chro­mes in their late inter­me­di­ate sta­tes by means of molecu­lar dynam­ics sim­u­la­tions.
