Subject: 16.06.18 Postdoctoral Position in Biomolecular Simulation at Stanford University
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in Prof. Ron Dror's lab at 
Stanford University (http://drorlab.stanford.edu/). Successful applicants will use a variety 
of computational techniques to address key scientific questions in biochemistry and 
to enable advances in drug discovery, particularly for G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), 
which represent the largest class of drug targets.  This work will be carried out in close 
collaboration with world-class experimentalists.

Candidates must have an outstanding record of research and academic performance, 
strong communication skills, and an ability to work independently and collaborate 
effectively.  Experience with molecular dynamics simulation, enhanced sampling methods, 
programming, protein design, or molecular modeling of membrane proteins is desirable, 
but candidates are not expected to have experience in all of these areas.

Dr. Dror's lab focuses on computational approaches to studying the spatial organization
and dynamics of biomolecules and cells.  Our work spans fields ranging from biophysics
and computational chemistry to high-performance computing, image processing, and 
machine learning.  We have access to substantial computational and experimental facilities 
and are based in an interdisciplinary biosciences building immediately adjacent to 
Stanford's medical, science, and engineering schools.

Stanford, one of the world's top universities, is located on a beautiful campus in the San 
Francisco Bay Area.  Stanford has long been a magnet for talent in computing and the 
biosciences, and is considered the birthplace and spiritual center of Silicon Valley, an 
unparalleled center of technological and scientific innovation.

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer.
To apply, please send the following to drorlabopenings##gmail.com: a CV, a cover letter 
explaining your interest in the position, contact information for three referees, and a 
document you wrote that has not been edited by anyone else (for example, a report, 
an early draft of a manuscript, or an email to a colleague about a scientific topic).
NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
All @ signs were changed to ## to fight spam. Before you send e-mail, you need to change ## to @
For example: change joe##big123comp.com to joe@big123comp.com
Please let your prospective employer know that you learned about the job from the Computational Chemistry List Job Listing at http://www.ccl.net/jobs. If you are not interested in this particular position yourself, pass it to someone who might be -- some day they may return the favor.
