A postdoctoral position is available at the recently established Protein Design and Modeling lab from the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB). This position will involve the computational design of de novo ligand-binding protein folds, with a particular interest on developing binding-induced conformational responses. This will lay the basis for custom-designing conformational switches responding to small-molecules in biosensing and synthetic biology applications. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with biochemists performing the experimental characterization of the designed proteins.
