Sebastian Kmiecik, prof. of the University of Warsaw.

Available positions: 2.

Employed persons will conduct research in the field of life sciences, in the discipline of chemical sciences.

Project description

The project "Integrative methods for modeling protein-protein complexes and multimolecular assemblies" includes developing new software and/or using state-of-the-art structural bioinformatics software to study the structure of protein-protein complexes (or proteins with other molecules), study structure-function relationships, drug design, supporting experimental biomedical research, cooperation with external research groups. Within the project we will cooperate with prof. Huang group from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China.


  • conducting research within the project (development and/or application of various methods for modeling structures of protein complexes; use of available experimental data and machine learning methods; practical applications of the software for example in drug design; analysis of modeling results; software integration and the creation of high-throughput modeling protocols)
  • active participation in conducting research and entire publication proces (from idea to writing the final draft), possible conducting commercial projects
  • cooperation and effective communication with the team and external research groups
  • participation in determining research strategies and new research directions
