Return to Microsoft Research Lab - Asia

Computational Biology Group

Biology comes to the big data era. An enormous amount of biological data has been accumulated over the years and the size of the data is ever growing. The computational biology group at Microsoft Research Asia seeks to unlock the big biological data and reveal the secret of life with computation.

Good research enlightens people about the unknown or builds useful tools. We explore the uncharted area of life sciences with curiosity. We build fundamental technologies for the research community.

We are carrying out research in the following areas: molecular dynamics simulation, genomics, immunomics, microbiome, and protein folding.

Job Opportunities

A researcher of the computational biology group does interdisciplinary research on molecular science, especially on molecular dynamics research for biomolecules such as proteins, DNA, RNA, and ribosome. We are working on advanced techniques for computational molecular biology to help scientists obtain deep insights into life at the molecular level.

We are eager to work with the colleagues who are passionate about fundamental scientific research and can devote their attention into technological innovations and scientific breakthroughs. We are especially interested in finding the talents with the following background: molecular dynamics, ab initio molecular dynamics, computational chemistry, computational physics, computational biology, and structural biology. We welcome the applicants with diverse research background. If you are confident that your unique expertise can contribute to a scientific big bet, submit your application to us.

To help the researchers enjoy the research they are doing and unleash their full potential, we provide an open interdisciplinary research atmosphere with sufficient computational resources.

What we need are your passion and dedication in research, and your commitment in generating world-class research.

Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D. or master’s degree in molecular science related disciplines, including but not limited to, physics, (computational) chemistry, and biology.

The applicants should be fluent in spoken and written English. Applicants should demonstrate their capability in doing solid research in their field as evidenced by high quality publications or a track record of innovation. Good implementation skills and mathematical background are highly preferred. Candidates must be able to collaborate effectively with other researchers. We are particularly interested in the candidates who can work across disciplinary boundaries.
