José Faraldo-Gómez studied Physics at the Universidad Autónoma in Madrid, graduating in 1999. He went on to pursue postgraduate studies in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics at the University of Oxford, with fellowships from La Caixa Foundation, the British Council, and the UK Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council. He obtained his doctoral degree in 2002, under the supervision of Prof. Mark Sansom. He then moved to United States, where he did his postdoctoral work in the group of Prof. Benoit Roux, first at the Medical College of Cornell University in New York City, and subsequently at the University of Chicago. His pre- and post-doctoral work was focused on membrane proteins and, in later years, also on signalling enzymes, studied through computer simulations and other theoretical methods.

In late 2007 Dr. Faraldo-Gómez established the Theoretical Molecular Biophysics Group at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, where he remained until mid 2013. During this time he was also appointed Adjunct Investigator of the DFG Cluster of Excellence 'Macromolecular Complexes', and Associate Investigaor of the DFG Collaborative Center 'Transport & Communication across Biological Membranes'.

In 2013 he relocated the TMB group to the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland. He is currently a tenured Senior Investigator at the Biochemistry & Biophysics Center of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. He also serves as an Associate Editor of The Journal of General Physiology, and as member of the Editorial Board of Biophysical Journal.
