Group of macromolecular interactions

MIPT Genomic Center and Genome Engineering Lab are starting an international collaboration focussed on macromolecular interactions. The major goal of this pursuit is to establish MIPT expertise in interactomics, both experimental and bioinformatic, by participating in projects with leading world experts in macromolecule analysis - see also:

We are looking for Team Leader to manage bioinformatic/software projects.

More details and application form - follow the link below


Candidates we are looking for:

We have a history of working with MIPT over the last 5 years; several project have been published so far [2, 3] and few more manuscripts are in preparation. Most projects focus on data processing and analysis as it applies to charting the behaviours of macromolecules. In addition, elements of network analysis were employed combine newly generated experimental data with publicly available data retrieved from databases. We will continue in this tradition, while also growing to keep pace with rapidly advancing experimental technologies. We expect Team Leader candidates to meet the following requirements:

  • Strong knowledge of cell biology
  • Understanding of protein and peptide mass-spectrometry
  • Strong skills in data analysis and statistics
  • Skills in R and Python programming
  • Written and oral English
  • Strong skills in scientific project management

This year’s projects will be based on new multidimensional datasets and studies of protein complex dynamics acquired for variety of targets (macromolecular complexes), carried out in collaboration with NYU Langone Health, The Rockefeller University, MIT, and others, and will certainly lead to joint publications in top tier journals.

We expect MIPT Group to go in depth in several areas of data analysis:

  • Raw data signal processing in mass spectrometry
  • Data analysis and integration for multidimensional (high content) experimental frameworks, including statistical testing
  • Network algorithms and merging networks from different sources

Software development will be done with the additional supervision of Dr. Dmitry Alexeev (former asst. prof. at MIPT [google scholar]) and will be based on weekly scrum sessions including the participation of the international team of Dr. John LaCava (The Rockefeller University and European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing).

An objective for this joint research is the transfer of a ‘macromolecule interaction charting platform technology’ to the lab of Dr. Pavel Volchkov at MIPT, and further applying this framework to objects studied at MIPT to decipher the structure/function connectivity exceeding the level of details achieved in our earlier published works [e.g. refs 1-4].


We expect full time candidate to join international consortia and travel between our locations, while mostly staying at MIPT. Competitive salary. Career opportunities.
