Job description

Newcastle Innovation Centre is working on developing molecular dynamics models of the interaction of detergent activities such as surfactants and polymers and biological ingredients such as proteins and starch present in many different types of stains.

The modelling & simulation group at Newcastle Technical centre is offering a 12-month postdoctoral placement, where the candidate will:

  • Develop atomistic simulation models for the accurate representation of complex biological molecules such as different proteins and starches.
  • Develop high-resolution atomistic models of the interaction between different surfactants and different types of proteins and starches in water.
  • Classify the different interactions and identify molecular descriptors that correlate with the different types of interactions.
  • Combine the simulation work with available experimental data to explain different phenomena observed at the macro-scale.
  • Design experimental tests to prove/disprove identify hypotheses.
