A cross divisional team of physicists, computer scientists, biologists and chemists implements a novel protein structure prediction pipeline to solve one of the oldest challenges in computational biophysics: The Protein Folding Problem.
We will apply our pipeline to a global community wide blind test in 2020 called CASP14.
The work entails:
- training of convolutional neural networks
- design of simulation algorithms
- high performance super computer usage
- chemical and biological evaluation of results
Ability and willingness to work together with a very diverse team
Basic understanding of Biology and Chemistry
Solid programming experience, python preferred
Research topics are available for graduates as well as undergraduates.
