Om jobbet

Linköping University

Hereby advertises a position as PhD student in structural biology/structural bioinformatics.


In this position, you will develop statistical and machine learning approaches to analyze and improve modelling of disordered regions of macromolecular atomic models derived from multi-dataset X-ray crystallography experiments. Working with both national and international experimental collaborators, you will apply these methods to study the role of flexibility and dynamics in relation to molecular recognition and function using data from time-resolved, multi-temperature and fragment screening crystallography experiments.

As a PhD student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.


You must have a degree at Master’s level with a minimum of 240 credits in a relevant scientific discipline, or experience and knowledge equivalent to this. 

Experience with programming and data analysis (preferably in python), and/or with macromolecular structure analysis is highly beneficial. All additional necessary training will be provided through courses either within Linköping University or through the SciLifeLab network.

Scientific curiosity and the ability to think independently are essential personal qualities in a candidate. You will be expected to engage with colleagues and cooperate in supporting the activities of the research group. You must also have excellent oral and written communication skills in English.

We are looking for enthusiastic outgoing people to join our interdisciplinary research group and encourage applications from all personal and scientific backgrounds. You should enjoy working as part of a team, and be willing to learn from your co-workers and to share your knowledge and experience with them in return.

Motivate in your cover letter why you are interested in the role.

You should not hesitate to get in touch if you have questions about an application, for example regarding eligibility/suitability for the role (see contact details below).
