The computational chemistry and physics group and the analytical chemistry group, both at the Van ‘t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences in the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam (UvA), are looking for a talented and dedicated researcher to join a challenging project on predicting the effect of ions on the multimerization properties of an industrially relevant enzyme.
What are you going to do?
The project aims to understand the effect of ion type and concentration on the conformation and multimerization properties of beta-galactosidase, an industrially relevant enzyme. You will develop a molecular simulation protocol to compute the affinity of β-galactosidase for ions, which will be employed to predict the effects of ions on the dimerization and tetramerization properties of β-galactosidase. The predictions will be tested by AF4-MALS experiments.
- A PhD in Chemistry;
- a strong expertise in molecular dynamics simulations;
- demonstrated experience in molecular simulation of proteins;
- experience in performing rare event simulations;
- fluency in English, both written and spoken.
A temporary contract for 38 hours per week for the duration of 20 months.
The salary, depending on relevant experience before the beginning of the employment contract, will be €2,709 to €4,274 (scale 10) gross per month, based on a full-time contract (38 hours a week). These amounts are exclusive 8 % holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of-year bonus. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants.
