About the Department

Department of Chemistry – BMC conducts research and education in analytical chemistry, biochemistry and organic chemistry. More than 100 people work at the department. New employees and students are recruited from all over the world and English is the main working language. The department is located at the Biomedical Centre in Uppsala, which facilitates collaborations with research groups in biology, pharmacy, medicine and SciLifeLab and gives access to advanced infrastructure for experimental and theoretical studies. You can find more information about us here.

The position is placed in the Westenhoff research group. The team has the goal to uncover structural dynamics of proteins and chemical reactions. The research at the interface of biology, chemistry and physics has resulted in two ERC awards and other high profile grants, and the group continuously publishes in widely recognized journals. Find more information on: and on google scholar.

The project: We are looking for a researcher to apply machine learning and artificial intelligence approaches for protein structure prediction and for combining these with the analysis cryo EM data and serial X-ray crystallography. The project also aims at preparing a national infrastructure for proteins structure prediction. We welcome applicants, who contribute own ideas on the project design.
