Om jobbet

Linköping University

Hereby advertises a position as Postdoc in the field of structural biology/structural bioinformatics.


In this position, you will use statistical and machine learning approaches to develop methods for improving modelling and refinement of heterogeneous regions of macromolecular atomic models derived from multi-dataset crystallography experiments. You will use these approaches to generate highly detailed models that enable quantitative structural studies of multi-state systems, such as protein-ligand complexes obtained from fragment-screening experiments. You will engage with national & international collaborators to apply these methods to time-resolved and multi-temperature experimental data sets.

As a postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.


To be qualified to take employment as postdoc, you must have been awarded a doctoral degree or have a foreign degree that is deemed to be equivalent to a doctoral degree.  This degree must have been awarded at the latest by the point at which LiU makes its decision to employ you.

It is considered advantageous if your doctoral degree is no older than three years at application deadline for this job. If there are special reasons for having an older doctoral degree – such as taking statutory leave – then these may be taken into consideration.

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. You will also be encouraged to contribute to the training of junior group members and collaborate with other group members on different projects.

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).
