3-year postdoc position on (coarse-grained) molecular dynamics

Patrick Onck's picture

The Onck-group at the University of Groningen in The Netherlands has an opening for a post-doctoral position in the field of (coarse-grained) molecular dynamics of proteins. The candidate should have a background in molecular dynamics of hard or soft matter and is not afraid to enter a new research direction. The post-doc position is part of the oLife Fellowship Programme, a joint initiative by seven research institutes in The Netherlands for interdisciplinary research on fundamental questions concerning the origin and evolution of life. The university of Groningen is a top-100 university (

We are looking for ambitious scientists from the field of computational (bio)mechanics to enter the field of multiscale modelling of protein (and nucleic acid) structures that are essential to life. The candidate should have a background in molecular dynamics of hard or soft matter, is not afraid to enter a new research direction and who can come up with an original and innovative idea for an interdisciplinary research project in the Onck group. Also, you should be curious to learn how to make the necessary crossovers between your field and other fields, as interdisciplinary collaboration is important in this fellowship programme.

The applicants are requested to write their own project proposal. This makes the positions extra attractive as there are no predefined projects. Like this the applicant can tailor the proposal to match his/her own expertise and those available in the host lab. If you are interested, please contact Prof.dr. P.R. Onck at p.r.onck(at) or visit To be qualified, the candidate will not have resided in the Netherlands for more than 12 months during the 3 years prior to January 26, 2020.

For details on the programme, please visit the website: The deadline for proposals is 26 January 2020.
