Open positions for Master and PhD students

25. January 2016

We are currently looking for Master and PhD students with a major in physics, biophysics, biochemistry, or related fields. Projects involve the development and application of advanced high-performance molecular simulations at different scales to protein biophysical problems. Possible systems to be studied include mechano-sensing kinases and force transmission in membranes. 

The group is based at HITS in Heidelberg, and has strong ties to Heidelberg University, which offers attractive international graduate programmes.

If you are interested to join, please contact frauke.graeter@h-its.org

About HITS

The Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) was established in 2010 by the physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, with a focus on the processing, structuring, and analyzing of large amounts of complex data and the development of computational methods and software. The research fields range from molecular biology to astrophysics. The shareholders of HITS are the HITS-Stiftung, which is a subsidiary of the Klaus Tschira Foundation, Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). HITS also cooperates with other universities and research institutes and with industrial partners. The base funding of HITS is provided by the HITS Stiftung with funds received from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The primary external funding agencies are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
