The mandate of research at NCBS is the study of biology. To realize our goals of understanding living systems, we understand that research problems need to be approached from a variety of directions. We therefore have recruited, and actively encourage applications from researchers with a variety of backgrounds in the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science. Biological problems not only require multiple approaches for their solution, but also need researchers of varied expertise to collaborate. Collaboration at every level—within NCBS, within the country and internationally—is strongly encouraged. Our research groups are small and with specific strengths that make interactions with complementary groups fruitful.
Post : Graduate Trainee in Computational Structural Biology
Job description :
• Computational modeling of 3D structures of large macromolecular assemblies
• Structures of protein complexes contribute to our understanding of mechanistic details of biological processes and the roles of these molecular machines in disease. However structures of large protein assemblies are difficult to obtain using any single experimental method. We use computational modeling to determine such structures by combining a variety of experimental data, physical theories, and statistical inference.
• On the method development front, we are interested in developing methods to improve model representation and validate the models.
• On the applications front, we are applying these modeling methods to characterize assemblies at cell-cell junctions.
• Bachelor or Masters in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or Bioinformatics or Physics with Minimum % of marks: 75.
• At least 1 year project experience that involves programming; ideally in computational biology.
• Programming experience in Python/C++ or any other language.
• Comfortable working in Linux environment
• The ideal candidate possesses strong programming skills and is motivated to apply these skills in the structural biology domain.
