Enzymit

Computational Structural Biologist

Job description:

Design novel enzymes, or alter existing enzymes specificity using our computational protein design platform potentially with industry or government partners

Required qualifications:

  • Peer-reviewed publications on protein engineering, design, structure and function

  • Experience with molecular modeling software (e.g. Rosetta)

  • Familiarity with molecular visualization software (e.g. PyMol)

  • Scripting experience (Python) and knowledge of biology data formats (PDB,Fasta,Genbank)

  • Good understanding of bioinformatics tools such as Blast, HMMER, – when and how to use them.

  • Familiarity with NGS analysis pipelines

Responsibilities

  • Design novel enzymes, or alter existing enzymes specificity using our computational protein design platform potentially with industry or government partners.

  • Data analysis and visualization for reports/presentations, delivery to partners

  • Summarize and discover novel research on protein and enzyme design, high-throughput screening, to guide our experimental and computational teams.

  • Work side-by-side with chemists, biologists, computer scientists, and software developers to develop new methods for protein design and execute existing ones.

  • Assist in the collection/curation of biological datasets (sequence, structure, function data) for machine learning initiatives

  • Identification of platform limitations and development of research strategies to resolve these issues.
