A postdoc position for two years and a half (starting in 2022 and finishing
in August 31st 2024) with a possible extension of 6 additional months is
open at the Laboratory of Molecular Neuropharmacology and
Bioinformatics (Institut de Neurociències, Universitat Autònoma de
Barcelona), headed by Dr. Jesús Giraldo, to work on Molecular Dynamics
simulations of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).
The position is linked to the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación
grant “Assessing the functional complexity of GPCRs through
computational methods: chronic pain from a molecular pharmacology
perspective” Ref. PID2020-119136RB-I00.
The project involves molecular dynamics simulations of opioid receptors
including intrinsic efficacy (partial/inverse agonism), receptor
heteromerization and biased signaling pharmacological topics.
