Masters level research assistant position in Bioinformatics

A Masters level research assistant position in Bioinformatics is available immediately at the Department of Biological Sciences at Sunway University, Selangor, Malaysia for the project entitled HARNESSING THE MUTATION POTENTIAL OF EV71 VIRULENT PROTEINS: NOVEL HEALTH INTERVENTION STRATEGIES FOR HAND FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE. The aim of the project is to analyze transient mutations and long-term substitutions in the polyprotein of Enterovirus 71 by Molecular Dynamics simulations, focusing on the consequences of those substitutions for virus stability and virulence. A monthly stipend of RM 2000-2500 is available based on the level of expertise required for the project, which is in collaboration with Dr. Derek Gatherer at Lancaster University.

Applicants should be Malaysian citizens, highly motivated and dedicated to dry-lab research, with a demonstrated interest in infectious diseases through publications. Publications in the relevant field of Molecular Dynamics Simulation would be an additive plus. Please send a brief CV and academic transcripts to:
