The successful candidate will be responsible for taking over an already running project focused on the development of RNA, protein, and protein-RNA complex prediction methods (based on coarse graining and statistical potentials) and contributing towards its further development and application in RNA/protein design and prediction of effects of mutations on structure and function. The software is written mostly in C/C++ and Python.
Apart from research, additional tasks will include supervising junior programmers (undergraduate and PhD students) and contributing to the unification of software development in the lab. Postdocs who intend to become independent group leaders (outside of IIMCB) in the next step of their career are particularly encouraged to apply.

Good command of English (written and spoken) is absolutely essential.
|How to Apply|| Applications in English (pdf format) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a CV, a motivation letter, sample of documented software code (of the candidate's sole authorship) in C/C++ (and additionally in Python, if possible), and contacts of at least two potential referees (including at least one former supervisor).
