On March 1st, 2022, Dr. Ferran Feixas started a new position at the Department of Chemistry, University of Girona, as a Ramón y Cajal (RyC) Fellow. The Ramón y Cajal Fellowship program is co-financed by the European Commission’s European Social Fund through the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. These grants are aimed at promoting the incorporation of national and foreign researchers with an outstanding career by the granting of contracts for their employment during 5 years, and the funding for the creation of permanent jobs for their subsequent incorporation in the Spanish System of Science, Technology and Innovation agents. The selection is based on a rigorous process of competitive tender of candidates on the basis of their curricular merits and their ability to lead a line of research, according to the scientific and professional experience, as well as the independence of their career.
As a Ramón y Cajal Fellow, Ferran will continue as PI at the IQCC, leading a research team working on the research line: “ACCEMBLY: Accelerating (Bio)molecular Recognition, Assembly, and Catalysis”. The goal of the group is to develop and apply computational tools to unravel how (bio)molecules interact to gain insight into the detailed molecular mechanisms of relevant chemical and biomedical processes and, then, harness this information to enhance the discovery and rational design of novel drugs, protein assemblies, supramolecular complexes, and/or (bio)catalysts.
