Postdoctoral Research Associate "Machine Learning for Cancer Therapy"

Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems

Magdeburg, Germany

The Molecular Simulations and Design Group (Hon.-Prof. Dr. Matthias Stein) at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate (m/f/d) for the topic “Machine Learning for Cancer Therapy”. The Salary follows the public sector TVöD (Salary Class E13).

The position is to be filled as soon as possible, limited to one year and may be extended upon mutual agreement.

The Molecular Simulations and Design Group (MSD) develops and applies methods in computational chemistry and biology which enable the investigation of complex chemical and biological processes at the molecular level. Multi-scale simulations span orders of magnitude in spatial and time dimensions and give detailed insight into reaction mechanisms and intermolecular interactions.

In this project, vector representations of small molecules that act as inhibitors against cancer targets will be used to train a representative subset. Neural networks and algorithms from machine learning will be applied to generate new candidate structures for a new target. In a collaboration with the medical faculty those will be tested in vitro.

We are recruiting a candidate with a PhD in

  • Theoretical Chemistry/Computational Chemistry
  • Bioinformatics/Computational Biology
  • Computational Physics

Experience in scientific programming (C, C++, python) and machine learning algorithms is required.
