The Computational Biomolecular Dynamics Research Group within the Department of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry invite applications for Postdoc position (Code number 20-17) for the project Collective Dynamics Underlying Protein Allostery.

About the position:

  • The lab has made significant recent progress in deciphering collective motions underlying allosteric transitions in protein-protein recognition as well as cooperativity in substrate binding.
  • The objective is to investigate how widespread the identified mechanisms are and thus to answer the question if these represent a generally employed class of allostery.


  • Applicant must have interest in computational molecular biophysics and skills in structural biology, physical chemistry, statistical mechanics and Biocomputing
  • Applicant must hold PhD degree in any of these or a related field.

Duration: 2-years with a possible extension

Remuneration: payment and benefits are based on the German TVöD guidelines.


Application must include:

  • Cover letter explaining background and motivation
  • CV
  • Publication record (if applicable)
  • All material to be as one single PDF file
  • Applications to be sent via e-mail to
