Post-doc and three PhD positions on deep learning, biomolecular modeling, and computational chemistry are available in the Center for Computational and Data-Intensive Science and Engineering at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology .

The projects aim to bridge recent advances in deep learning and molecular modeling in order to develop practical solutions for structural biology problems, such as protein structure modeling, structure-based drug discovery, and molecular design.

We have two open PhD positions:

  • “Computational design of proteins with target properties using molecular modeling & deep learning”
  • “Small molecule property prediction using molecular modeling & deep learning”
  • “Computational prediction of point mutation effects using molecular modeling & deep learning”


For PhD candidates, please send your application with the keyword ‘PhD application’ as one single file including a CV, a motivation letter, copies of university transcripts (BSc and MSc, in Russian or English) by email to p.popov@skoltech.ru, or apply via the Skoltech PhD application system . Application deadline for the selection round is on April 2021.

Last year positions (closed):
“Deep Learning Applied for 3D Molecular Interactions”
“Deep Learning for Exploration of Chemical Space and Drug Discovery”

There are also MSc projects on related topics, feel free to contact p.popov@skoltech.ru, if you are interested to join the group as a MSc student.
