Position: Post-doc

marc van dijk

Marc van Dijk studied Biology at Utrecht University and obtained his Master's degree in Biomolecular Sciences and specialization in structural biology in 2005. Subsequently, he performed his PhD research at the NMR Department of the Bijvoet Center for structural biology at Utrecht University. Marc obtained his PhD degree in 2010, on the topic of protein-DNA interaction modelling using molecular simulation techniques.

Thereafter, he has been involved in various research projects as post-doctoral researcher at the Cambridge University (UK), Utrecht University and VU University Amsterdam where he currently holds a Senior Scientist position. His research focuses on the study of biomolecular interactions using computational molecular modeling and simulation techniques.

Marc is currently involved in the Dutch e-Science center project "Enhancing protein-Drug binding prediction" where he is involved in method development for accurate protein-drug binding affinity prediction using free-energy methods. Part of this project is the MDStudio software platform for microservice based molecular dynamics workflows where Marc is project coordinator and lead developer.
