Postdoctoral position in Biological Physics

The BioModeling, BioInformatics & BioProcesses lab of the Free University of Brussels (ULB) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in the field of biological physics.  The appointment will be initially for a period for 18 months starting between January and March 2019, financed by the FNRS Fund for Scientific Research, with the possibility of extension through an FNRS postdoctoral research grant or a Marie Curie EC grant. The candidate can not have lived in Belgium for more than 18 months in the last 3 years.

Possible research subjects include:

  • Protein folding, stability and aggregation, and how these biophysical characteristics are related to disease mechanisms, using the statistical potential formalism.
  • Stochastic modeling of biological systems, with the focus on noise modulation, in the context of non-equilibrium thermodynamics
  • Charge migration in DNA and its connection with transcription and translation mechanisms, mutability and disease, using quantum chemistry calculations


  • PhD degree in Sciences (Physics, (Bio)Informatics, Chemistry).
  • Good programming and computer science skills.
  • Good communication skills in English.
  • Good publication record in peer-reviewed scientific journals.


Please submit a 1) cover letter detailing your background and interest in the position, 2) a full C.V. and 3) at least two references (with name, email, address, phone number) via email to Marianne Rooman ([email protected]).
