Be the Next Game Changer

Post Doc - BIOVIA Biologics Drug Design- Fall 2022

United States, CA, San Diego Internship 6/6/2022 527010

Imagine New Horizons…

As an intern within the Biologics Development Team within Dassault Systemes BIOVIA, you will help develop and validate scientific protein modeling and design methods for our life sciences customers. 

Shape your career with 3DS! #WeAre3DS 

This is a paid internship available with a flexible fall start date and duration.  You will be working in the Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA office at 5005 Wateridge Vista Drive, San Diego, CA 92121

What your role will be?

You will have access to our advanced modeling and machine learning algorithms and state of the art visualization, and use the BIOVIA Discovery Studio suite with Pipeline Pilot for the research.

As a Biologics Development Group post-doc, you will develop models to study protein design problems, such as antibody-antigen binding interfaces. 

This work will expose you to the widely adopted scientific development platform, Pipeline Pilot, and the innovative research topics in biologics therapeutic design.

A peer-reviewed publication is desirable based on the outcome of the research.

The Challenges ahead

Develop a new algorithm for protein modeling and design.  Area of interests include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Scoring function and ML model to rank protein – protein docking poses
  • None-linear B-cell Epitope mapping
  • Antibody paratope mapping and clustering
  • Protein post-translational modification


Your Key Success Factors

Ph.D.  in computational biology or related field 

Working experience with in silico antibody design

Working experience with protein-protein docking algorithms and scoring functions

Experience in object oriented programing using either C++, Java, or Python

Working experience in BIOVIA Pipeline Pilot is desirable

Experience in developing protein 3D and 3D-shape descriptors is desirable

Experience in applying machine learning algorithms to solve biological problems is desirable

Ability to work in a collaborative team, attention to detail, scientific curiosity, strong communication skills, and a desire to develop high quality software.
