Bolsa de Investigação para Mestre Full-time

de Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier ITQB NOVA em Lisboa (Publicado em 11-11-2019)

Education: Candidates with a Master?s degree and education in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, or similar areas.
Other requirements:
We are looking for a highly motivated and creative researcher, to take part in a project that will employ state-of-the art coarse-grain simulation models of bacterial systems to further our knowledge on the biochemistry of bacterial respiration.
Preference will be given to candidates that:
? look forward to learning and developing coarse-grain modeling techniques;
? are motivated to pursue a PhD in the future;
? are proficient in English.
A half-page motivation letter must be included stating the candidate?s expertise and how it blends into this project.
Work Plan: This fellowship focuses on simulating the interactions of Staphylococcus aureus respiratory proteins with the relevant redox cofactors ? namely, the soluble electron carriers NADH and NADPH, and membrane-bound quinones. State-of-the-art coarse-grain models will be employed, within the Martini philosophy, to cover the demanding timescales of the simulated processes.
The fellow will develop work and gain expertise in:
? The preparation and simulation of protein/biomembrane model systems;
? The visualization of structural and dynamic simulation data;
? The analysis and quantification of biologically relevant events from simulation data;
? An applied use of open-source software and operating system.
Applicable Law and Regulations: Law 40/2004 of 18 August (?Estatuto do Bolseiro de Investigação Científica?), changed and republished by Ordinance 202/2013 of 27 August and changed by Ordinance 233/2012 of 29 October and by Law 12/2013 of 29 January and by Ordinance 89/2013 of 9 July and by the Ordinance 123/2019 of 28 August; Fellowship Regulations of Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, I.P. ? Law in force (https://www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/docs/RegulamentoBolsasFCT2018.pdf); Fellowship Regulations of Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier ? ITQB NOVA.
Working place: The candidates will work at ITQB NOVA, Oeiras, at the Multiscale Modeling Lab, under the supervision of Doctor Manuel Nuno Melo and co supervision of Professor Manuela M. Pereira.
Duration of the Fellowship: 6 months, renewable up to 12 months. The start date is planned for February 2020. The scholarship will be awarded on an exclusive basis, as stated in Fellowship Regulations of Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P. ? 2013 and on Fellowship Regulations of ITQB NOVA.
Monthly allowance: The grant amounts to ? 989,70 according to the table of values of grants awarded directly by the FCT, I.P. in the Country (http://www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores) and payment will be made, monthly, through bank transfer.
Selection criteria: Applications will undergo a pre-selection based on curriculum evaluation ? both on academic performance and background alignment with the work plan. Selected applicants, if more than one, will be interviewed. Interviews may be conducted via videoconference. When comparing interviewed applicants, the interview and curriculum evaluation will have a weight of 50% each.
Jury: Applications will be evaluated by a jury composed of Doctor Manuel Nuno Melo, Professor Manuela Pereira, Doctor Diana Lousa, Professor Cláudio Soares (substitute), and Doctor António Baptista (substitute).
Documents for application: Applications must indicate the reference of the fellowship and include the following documents: the motivation letter with the elements described above, detailed CV, copy of the degree certificates and names and contacts of two references.
Formal notification of decision: All applicants will be notified of the outcome via e-mail.
Application period: The application period is open from December 1st to December 31st. Interviews, if deemed necessary, will be announced and made shortly after the end of the application period and the results communicated immediately afterwards.
Applications must be submitted by e-mail to:
Doctor Manuel Nuno Melo
