Description
We are an interdisciplinary research group and study protein folding
and peptide aggregation by molecular dynamics simulations. The research
project involves the further development of computational methods to
analyze free-energy surfaces and their application to biologically
relevant conformational transitions in proteins.

Education
Master of science in Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics. Because
of the multidisciplinary research project, candidates should have a
keen interest in learning new disciplines, and combining their main
expertise with the new topic(s).
