  • Application Deadline
    Thursday, February 21, 2019
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The dissertation will focus on molecular simulations aiming to unravel at the molecular level key processes connected with translocation across cell membranes. Particular attention is paid to effects due to oxidative stress, ions, and specific membrane-associated peptides and proteins that are involved in numerous human diseases.
