There is a vacancy for a PhD position at Department of Molecular Biology, University of Bergen within the fields of molecular biology, cell biology and molecular simulations. The position is for a fixed-term period of 4 years. The PhD candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment in both the groups of Associate Professor Aurélia E. Lewis and Professor Nathalie Reuter, benefiting from the environment and infrastructures of the Department of Molecular Biology and of the Computational Biology Unit.

The project aims to explore the functional impact of lipids-protein interactions at the cellular level by using both bioinformatics and molecular approaches. The focus will be on proteins that we have previously identified by lipid interactomics. These proteins are known to contribute to different processes and cellular functions while being localised in different sub-cellular compartments. Using both modelling and molecular/cellular methods, the project will hence decipher how lipid interaction can anchor these proteins to membranes and regulate their functions.
