Biomolecular Modeling and Design Division

Two postdoctoral positions will be available in the Structure-based Ligand Discovery and Design group led by Dr. Hao Fan at the Bioinformatics Institute, A*STAR Singapore. Fan lab focuses on developing computational methods to study protein-ligand interactions, and applying to GPCRs, transporters, and enzymes.

Positions Available

 Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Computational Biology & Computational Chemistry)

We are seeking one experienced research fellow (either senior or junior level is fine) starting from next April who will use a wide range of computational techniques especially covalent docking/modeling to predict/design ligands and study molecular mechanisms. We are also seeking another junior research fellow starting next Jan who will work on transporters and nuclear receptors using a wide range of computational techniques (molecular docking and virtual screening, homology modeling, molecular dynamics simulations).


  1. PhD in computational biology, broadly defined
  2. Strong expertise in both protein structure modelling and small molecule docking
  3. Experience in covalent docking/modelling of protein-ligand interactions is required for the 1st position
  4. Experience in computational study on membrane proteins or nuclear receptors is preferred for the 2nd position
  5. Strong problem-solving skills and able to work independently, experience in method development is preferred
  6. Strong programming/scripting skills and English language skills
  7. Experience in teamwork (e.g. collaboration with experimental labs) will be a plus

Application Procedures:

Applicants should send a single pdf containing a one-page cover letter describing prior research/work experience and accomplishments, and a full resume, to Fan (

Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
