Theoretical and Computational Biophysics
Our research aims at an understanding of the physics and function of proteins, protein complexes, and other biomolecular structures at the atomic level. For this purpose, complex computer simulations of the atomistic dynamics are carried out. Read more about our research projects at our RESEARCH website.
We are always looking for highly motivated scientists, possessing a strong background in physics, physical chemistry, mathematics and/or biomolecular simulations. If you are interested in driving research projects forward which are conducted at our department please submit your application documents (including motivation letter, CV, publication list, certificates) preferrably as single PDF file via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the instructions in the job announcements.

Research Group of Helmut Grubmüller
The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina honors the biophysicist for his outstanding scientific achievements and the special expertise in his field of research. (in German)
Research Group of Bert de Groot
In Parkinson’s patients, alpha-synuclein proteins clump together to form fibrils, which presumably damage nerve cells. A research team has now shown how lipids bind to these fibrils and influence their arrangement. They also demonstrated how the drug candidate anle138b attaches to the lipidic fibrils. The findings could open up new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
Research Group of Aljaz Godec
Aljaz Godec. leader of the Mathematical bioPhysics research group, receives a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The competition for the funding is fierce: The ERC selected only 371 of 2,222 applications in this round.
