Researcher Name: Pastor, Nina (She / Her)

Research Area(s): Molecular Biophysics

Affiliation: Centro de Investigación en Dinámica Celular, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos

Country: México

Website 

Scientific Interests:

In my lab we perform molecular modeling of proteins and their complexes with other molecules. Currently we are interested in understanding the interactions and dynamics of recombinase Cre with its cognate site loxP. We carry out molecular dynamics simulations starting from available structures in the Protein Data Bank, having repaired DNA and/or Cre modifications that were needed to obtain these structures. We look for the role of quaternary contacts in the assembly of the recombination active sites and rationalize known biochemical information about specificity and target recognition. Candidates should be comfortable working with computers in a linux environment, and be willing to learn how to carry out simulations to answer specific biological questions. For a list of publications from the lab, please look me up in ResearchGate as Nina Pastor.

This offer applies to trainees/researchers eligible for the following fellowships

Everyone (not restricted to fellowship holders)

Other relevant information:

We are located in Cuernavaca, a city close to Mexico City (about one hour away). The climate is mild year round, and relatively cheap housing can be found close to the university campus. We have an interdisciplinary molecular biophysics group, combining experts in NMR, spectroscopy (UV/vis and fluorescence), DLS and molecular modeling (including computational medicinal chemistry). There are many opportunities to develop interesting projects combining computation and wet lab experiments.
